Going to get my wheels refurbished and don't know if I should stay the same colour

I'm a fan of black personally.. but I also dont clean my wheels much too :p

Haha I'm the same bill but need to try up my game on keeping it clean...I do like the darker wheels but thin it would look real fresh in silver

Also I'll be in touch soon for a badger5 inside and badger5 edition stickers

Not the best of pics but got the wheels back from powder coating and went up and put them back on so the paint guy can move the car.Ended up going for the silver hope it looks good when all finished

Well, i got my sill trims and skirts off today and found out the very expensive way on how NOT to remove the sill trim with the aluminium S3 strip, i trashed the ****** lot but i've found to have some surface rust on my sills and pretty much all along the bottom of the sill, i would of left it if my skirt wasn't cracked as well! It's something worth looking into i guess, only takes about 10 minutes to remove too...

That's dipped beam the difference really is night and day from my old lights and on full beam the light these lights produce really is something else

Full beam

Had a little car day yesterday got the oil and filter changed a few miles before it done the 3000 miles I normally change them at

Then took the car to the jet wash for a little clean and used some quick wax after I dried it

Decided to take it up the north of Scotland to work so I could have a little mid week play in it....got to annoy a e46 m3 driver who wasn't happy that he had a lot less power lol

Then got on the A9 and the roads were sketchy so was steady away till I got to work
