Eventually the alloys needed refurbishing so off the bodyshop they go decided on gloss black as i think they suit the car very well

Next thing was to get alloys refurbed and resprayed from silver to gloss black

Think they suit the car better than the silver wheels

[attachment=14152:1396737001026.jpg]

Also had the chrome bonnet trim sprayed panther black whilst it was in the paintshop
