    Looks very smart. Question, Can you get anthracite without the gloss so its a matt finish?

    Not sure these are actually secondhand,just found out this morning that BBS don't make them in this colour anymore either. You could refurb them in a matt finish or crackle(scene :sm4: ) finish - not sure how it would look though.

    Ah right cheers, i asked because i have RS6 alloys and want them refurbed and coated in anthracite but fancy a matt finish. Think it would look pretty cool against a shiny car!

    Think yours suit your car well, always liked the BBS style alloys. I had LM's on my BMW and loved them!

    You can't beat BBS for good strong solid wheels.I had RC's on my bora but think the would look **** on an S3,LM's would look really good with anthracite centres but you would need a little bit of lowering to pull LM's off. The big plus for a wheel like the CK is it looks ok at standard ride height.

    There is a Bora near my with huge alloys on and dropped to the floor. Not sure what alloys they are though. The owner did have X5 alloys on.

    Yeah i agree with what you say about the LMs and having to lower the car. Think that would be the case with most deep dish alloys.

    Are you thinking about lowering your car?
