Powder Coating Colors

Hey everyone, I was wondering if I could get your opinion on a few things. First off, is powder coating worth having done as a legitimate way to change the look your current wheels without buying a new set? Most of what I've read elsewhere says powder coating is worth every penny, but I'm interested in any more first hand knowledge you guys could provide.

And secondly, if powder coating is the real deal, what color do you think would look best with my white E93. Stock 19" wheels. My first instinct was basic black, but now I'm thinking a dark graphite/grey color may be the way to go, far more subtle than the harsh contrast between a bright white car and black wheels. Plus, maintenance would be much less of a headache if the wheels are the same color as brake dust!

Lastly, I've seen prices that range from a low of $50/wheel up to about $85/wheel..... just wondering what kind of prices you've guys seen around your areas.

Thanks guys and happy motoring!
