19" Wheels AND Wrap for E46 M3

Hi I've just picked up my new E46 M3 in Phoenix yellow but will be wrapping it matt black with a carbon bonnet.

I really fancy some deep dished wheels and came across the Veloce XS 19 Alloys. I like the idea of the stainless dish and am looking at the Granite Black Edition. http://www.velocebmwwheels.com What do you reckon? cant find any pics of one anywhere?

I recommend VarssToen wheels. Not so expensive and good quality replicas!

Why would you get a rare color then wrap it? That makes no sense. And I hope your doing some really aggressive modding to pull of the flat black.

Paid a little less than window price as it had a few faults, no nav, tv or phone.

Why do you have to have aggressive mods for a certain color? that makes no sence.

So, the wrap is done! Had to save some pennies to get it done but think it's well worth the wait! A real head turner! What do you think guys?

All the car is matt black except the bonnet which is carbon!

No offense... But to me... that is like putting Pam Anderson in a burka. I am glad you like it though.
