Hmm, I think I'd trade or trade+cash for some that are already painted the right color.

If you decide to get Shayan's check the fitment first. Kamil's new ones didn't fit for crap.

Also, jet black cars look really good without swirls. Not really relevant, but I thought I'd throw that out there.

for pics after detail.

Yep, I believe he said they were OEM. He showed me that night that I went to test fit my wheels over his BBK. They were a tad short.

Yeah, it was really weird. I think most ppl don't have any noticeable problems.
Just saying you should test fit when you swap.
