    Im looking to buy some when funds allow and i'm in exactly the same situation, cant decide between black or white. Think i'm swaying towards black for the stealth effect :)

    Yeah really like them mate, thought several times about doing mine this colour to go on a Ming blue, think it would look good...

    Would suit a black car too, somebody on here has done it I seem to remember.

    I would say silver, as the oem silver has loads of sparkle to it.
    Would still like to see my Avus's bronze though one day :D

    oops, my reply was to the Op. Regarding my personal choice on wheel colour.
    would agree that the above pic looks gun metally (no so much anthracite as that has a blue tinge)

    J B snap... looks very similar :) lol
    I got mine done 3 years ago and they are still looking great. They were powder coated here .....Powdercoating, sandblasting and painting services from Pentland Powdercoating they are an anthracite grey/ gunmetal grey matches well with the trim

    wheels on my car .... (old pics pre lowered ...did the suspension last year :) )

    In fact I had to spray the centre caps myself and the closest colour match I could find was a halfrauds own, they only did a few but the one i used was called anthracite i think! still not particulary helpful!

    I had to do my centre caps seperately as well, as obviously they are plastic and would have melted!!

    I ended up going to Halfords as well, I believe i had either a Rover or Ford colour to do mine, its a slightly darker shade, but the contrast looks really good.

    a couple of grades of paper, coarse on to start, then to a finer one.
    use liquid metal to fill any big chips, although when i stripped mine the chips i thought wer gonna be big, turned out to be tiny and primer filled them in.
    oh and i used very fine wet n dry for in between my primer coats, of which i did 3

    i dont know off the top of my head, but you cant go too wrong, what you think will be ok will sort it, as primer once wet and dried will be smooth as silk
