sorry...not quite there yet imho. I think black wheels only work best with some sort of polished/chromed lipe to define the wheel. Not feeling those front fender stickers as well...

Thanks for your input, I plan to paint red/chrome on the outer cycle wheel, but dont have the right tool to help me do that, maybe I'll try later..

Now all you need is a coffee can tail pipe and a piano bench spoiler and you're all set.

Is it just me or did they do a horrible job painting your wheels? In the second to last and last pic around the spoke areas it still looks silver!

haha, I guess not only you man, I paint the wheel myself, and it's just for testing, if not good, I'll change it later, but I do like the red caliper I painted.....

actually I dont really like the black wheel myself, just feel different from others, maybe I should add some other color around the wheel to make more contrast...anyway, I painted myself, so it;s only temporary.....Thanks for your comments..

I love the eyelids, but I have never liked the idea of painting the calipers. It is only to emulate the look of a BBK, but always falls way short. And black wheels definiely need a polished lip, especially on a black car. Let us know what you finally decide to do with the wheels.

Leave it alone... I really like the red and it's a good compliment and contrast with the silver.

A totally blacked out car makes me think of Robocop! Or some car chase scene in a movie, where all the bad guy cars chasing the hero are all black.

it is ok, black cars usually look ok, but there is no contrast. It also looks like a bad paint job on the wheels. Not my style, but if YOU like it that is all that matters! I would have saved the money from painting the wheels and done a xenon conversion! I drove a e90 last night that didn't have xenons! WOW what a difference!
