    Need to get my BBS CH refurbished but what colour?

    Hi Guys,

    I bought some BBS CH Reps last year and i need to get them refurbished as i wasn't to happy with the finished of them when i bought them.

    So just after what peoples views are on what colour i should get them done? I was thinking anthracite but unsure.

    They look alright to me, i'd leave them as they are, they suit the black car. (just my opinion)
