    Definitely Anthracite, looks much better than Black on Black IMO.

    You know that parking over a slope like that will encourage a load of posts about lowering.

    lol thanks for the advice guys. i would like to lower it slightly how much would we be talking about for bringing it down just slightly?

    and is it worth paying £160 for a spray over wheels

    or £220 for powdercoat? think i may go for the anthracite although a small part of me wants it to be black! loool
