    i'm not sure about the black, i'd say try a more dark grey like the RS4 style rims on the Black Edition, that might look quite good...?

    i just did a quick job

    -clean alloys properly
    -rub the whole thing down with light wet and dry to remove lacquer ect
    -mask the tyre
    -spray primer (i used just halfords) i also got several heater around where i was working becuase its so bloody cold and makes it hard for paint to stck
    -then sprayed with the matt black from halfords, i probably did 3-4 layers

    i didnt lacqer the matt black because it gives it a shine and makes it look abit weird

    im not expecting it to last all that long but it gives me a idea untill my mate can take them to work and get powdercoated

    Why don't you try them in gloss black.

    I think a lighter grey would look better than matt black too!

    my mate has a black mk5 with gloss black lambo alloys and i think they are just too shinny and there an even bigger contrast between the tyre and alloys

    a lighter grey might work well

    Either will look miles better when its on coilies! Id leave them till they're on, they might look different again.

    You can't polish satin and they show up scratches easy, worth taking into consideration.

    Yeah looks the part. It has gloss black mirrors and the grey parts on the front and rear bumpers are now the same colour as the grill insert (3FZ I believe) a satin black finish. It all goes together well now.
