Recommended Posts

there not the greatest 100% job but overall they look gorgeous

and for £120 for four wheels it certainly isnt bad.

are the centre caps the same colour?

are they grey/anthrecite?

yeah pics are pretty crap. thats a new nokia for ya. my old sony knocked socks off my new one.

yeah centre caps are the same colour. actually looks really good with the chrome lexus badge on the gunmetal finish.

also going to take off my rear lexus badge on the boot and hes going to spray that tommorow aswell the same colour as the wheels.

he's only a sprayer so the job only goes as far as rubbing them down and getting rid of the flaky laquer, then blowing them over in a colour. but for £120 i dont think its a bad deal.

No. 1. Go Back to a Sony Ericsson mobile phone because there great!

No. 2. They will look great on a black car, seen it done before on an IS.

I didn't like the strip in the grill in the first pic but that's probably because it looks a faded pink it looks good in this picture though. not sure wether It looks better or worse than just plain black in my opinion. it certainly doesnt look :sick: though. :D

The wheels look good, not too sure on the grill though. Perhaps if it was a little narrower.

good plan, although looking at your drive, it's hard to belive you want something to resemble a german car?! :winky:

Very nice!I want mine like that but they need too be refurbed as well as painted. A guy on ebay does it for £170+£45 p+p. Do you have a paint code that you used for yours? He says he has a set of black sparkle ones but i definately want anthracite.

The pic below is the black sparkle, looks more like anthracite in the pic but they guy says its very black
