I finally got my powder coated wheels back and I absolutely love how the car looks with these on. It is exactly the look I was going for. I know not everyone likes to change up their cars and take away from stock look, but I could not be happier. Looks stealth like!

Thanks everyone. I will just have to make sure and not ever be stationary in the car...moving all times - quickly - will give the illusion of them being clean.

The fingerprints are terrible. that is for sure...

Good minds think alike...I am assuming you have a good mind, cause we have never met... I can tell you right now...I like your car a whole lot and I have never seen it!

I did mine in pewter...

... to match my carbon fiber parts (hood, mirrors and rear spoiler)





I think the darker wheels compliment the car.

Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
