i would've just left them un-painted! rims should not be painted...they should be replaced, but NEVER painted! They just never look right. Your car gets A+ for originality, and A+ for effort. But car looks like a HOT WHEEL...HAHAHAHA

every try painting them piNK?

I much prefer the original silver paint. The white is better than the black, but neither one is good. A different wheel in black with a polished lip would look good if you don't like the original silver. Here is a good example: http://e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45034
Edit: I looked at your picture of the wheels when they were black. The black is better than the white. But the black is definitely not better than the silver. The example URL in my first comment does show a good looking black rim.

i think they actually used to - i found an australian distributor once upon a time

but they stopped bringing them in - maybe not enough interest....

My wife and I were talking about this car with the white wheels. She didn't like it either - at all. She liked the green ones. Just kidding.

She said the driver of this car must be a girl because of the stuffed animals on the dashboard. Because lots of women have stuffed animals in their cars. Was she right?

i remember i go back at least once every year so i'm pretty familiar with the place
i live in the mid levels - ie half way up the mountain between central/wanchai/happy valley and the peak

do u even vaguely know what i'm talking abt?

basically i live on the side of the mountain on the way up to the peak - i assume u've heard of that, pretty touristy place
