Black wheels (again)

I know this has been touched several times, and I know a lot of people are not fans of black wheels, especially on Carbon black but... How bad can a set of satin black wheels look when the trim and grills (aftermarket) are black? I've seen pics but not on the F10. Want to do something with the stock 19's, just unsure.

Not sure. It was a customer's car from a couple of months ago.

Tommy did you replace your chrome fender trim to glass black also?

If so could you post a picture, I was wondering how that would look on CB

This is commonly done by the local dealership here (Classic). They have the M-Sport wheels powder coated black on AW vehicles. I have seen many around, and they look great.

If I were to get the stock M-wheels powder coated on a leased 550, would there be any issues at the end of my lease term (would I have to revert the wheels or pay extra?) thanks. does anyhow know how much powder coating at a dealership would cost? Want to make sure someone qualified does it (heard some people getting it done at some not so reputable places and having them chip/ deteriorate shortly after). Thanks


BTW, rajeek, your 7 is super cleaaaaaan. props

The pics should show up directly. No links. You may have some type of firewall blocking the pictures.
