The car is gorgeous...and perfect! I would not have done the black wheels, but you already knew that about me.

Nice present to yourself! Enjoy!

Your B7 is gorgeous! One of the best luxury sedans! I like everything except for smoked tail lights. Your painted wheels came out very nice.
Enjoy your ride!
By the way which angel eye are you using?

I would add black or cf vinyl to the roof, think it would look sweet and its super easy to remove if its not to ur liking. Maybe the rear view mirrors too, again u can always easily remove.

Absolutely stunning! I love the black wheels. I agree that a gloss black roof would look really nice.

I was thinking about that on the roof top. I might give it a try if it's easy to peel off. As for the wheels I want to give a different look than stock wheel there is another alpine white running around in town . Thanks for all the input

The vinyl peels off pretty easily, but the adhesive can be a bit of a pain to remove. There is a site sponsor named Don Nguyen (hope I spelled it correctly) who does vinyl wraps in SoCal.

I did all of my chrome trim and left it on for about 10 months. It took me about three hours to remove including a nice wash. I think it's a great mod as it is cheap, easily reversible, and when done right it really transforms the look of the car!

Looks perfect, I really like it.
Only I'm not a big fan of those LED's as the 7 already comes with the angel eyes. Just my opinion.

I love everything but the black wheels. The car is still sick though and probably looks even better in person. Real nice!!! I agree on the black roof, maybe even a roof spoiler in black as well.

LOVE THE CAR! in order to tie everything together i think painting the side chrome piece near the fenders gloss black and the mirrors gloss black would also look better. i don't know about the roof because that might be too much black but then again you can always remove it if it doesn't look good.

PM sent btw

I have never been a fan of black wheels on a white car. The exception being: Exotics & Sports.

Now then... Your choice of a Alpine Alpina is fantastic! Clearly one of the most "discerning vehicles" on any road at any time. So congrats on the purchase.

I have also stated for the record, I am not a fan of these wheels at all. I understand they are very $$$ and are made for the car, but the styling is all wrong for me.

Fortunately.... There are TONS of GREAT options for you and your fine chariot. But your ride, your choice.

I love all of the paint details you did that are tasteful and set it apart nicely! I particularly love that A$$:
