    That's actually quite spooky.

    I was in a wheel refurbers yesterday looking at some sample wheels there,and saw a wheel with a very similiar effect.

    Wondered what it would look like on a car , hopefully, soon we will find out :)

    :laugh: they do shine a bit in the direct sun!!! i love em

    Beauty about this effect is that they sparkle in the sun and go bright purple, yet in the dark they go a real deep purple which looks gorgeous

    2 pearlescent paints is always a win!!!!

    Tyres are going on saturday and i'll get plenty of pics at gti festival

    Oh c'mon grumpy

    Pardon? :laugh:

    Going down halfords after work to play with a few locking wheel nut keys, i'll let you know

    It is, hopefullly this combo will work as the base is lava grey and lava grey has a lot of purple in it when you look close

    I might do the mirrors purple to pull it off a bit more

    I think I like them. Yep, I do. :icon_thumright: I think.

    I think the quality of the paint might be a bit dodgy though. Some of it has come off onto your hand!! (Post 14, first photo. :happy:)

    Hat off to you on these but like others have said, it'll only be known how good they look once on the motor. First impressions is that they good mate.

    Question - You said they are painted. So what's the difference between 'painted' and 'powder coated'? Mate of mine traded in his S5 for a Maserati GT a couple of weeks back and insisted the wheels were powder coated before he took delivery.. (I'll put some pics up somewhere on ASN) but wanted to know the difference as I suspect paint will chip\flake quicker than Powder coated? excuse the ignorance on this technicality.

    Looking forward to seeing the wheels on mate.

    Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin." The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as "whiteware", aluminium extrusions, and automobile and bicycle parts. Newer technologies allow other materials, such as MDF (medium-density fibreboard), to be powder coated using different methods.

    No you're mixing us 3.2 boys up. I'm Mr Sarcastic, it's Paddy that's Mr Grumpy.

    I just think they look a bit camp, not a fan of sparkly stuff.
