Wheels are on

Car back today, Satin black 230s on-board.

TBH atm it's still growing on me... I like it but the 230s are unique wheels, well leave it to your thoughts.

Hmm to me it felt like it's too much... Like the car needs a contrast if you know what I mean.

And +1 to kaitan regarding the contrast.. you need dark tinted windows now.

Looks alright, personally I would have gone more glossy with the black but that's just me. Also like I said before.. supporting mods to go with it lol.

That looks cool - I like it! +1 on tints and perhaps adding some additional black highlights on the car like front splitters, rear lip/spoiler which will help tie in the black grills and wheels. Slight drop will add some aggression to the look .
