So I went from these which I hated as I never liked the style nor did I like the fact that they were black!

I know some of you might like the blacked out look but personally I have never enjoyed black rims, they look like they just blend into the tires and all the dark spaced in between. You loose the shape of the wheel.

Next week My Msport front bumper is getting fitted and the car is getting paint correction done and a heavy detail as well as colour coded Mirror covers and gloss black Kidney grills.

Most definitely keeping them red. Black car with red calipers works well for me personally. I am however going to redo them soon and with a glossy red instead.

These ones aren't stock though - unless just the tips have been changed.
