Wow, very nice...

Had my mind make up on hyper silver 710's- now I love the anthracite...Do you have any pics with a silver convertible with the anthracite finish.

Gloss Anthracite is actually pretty close to our standard gunmetal finish. I looked around but couldn't find exactly that criteria right now. It would look good though!

It would have been really cool to see how they came out in blue but your V701s still look great in Hyper Silver!

Just got these V705s back. They came out looking awesome!







Fairly dark, but you can see through the tinted clear.

The closest I've seen has been brushed V710s with polished windows.



I would love for someone to do this to a set of their wheels, followed by a powder clear, but it's really expensive overall.

What would you suggest on a Alpine white 325i? Was thinking about getting a set.

It depends on what you're looking for! We can do all sorts of colors. If you want something really simple, we have a variety of different anthracite type finishes. If you want something a bit more loud, we have pretty much any color you can think of. If you want something truly unique, we could do something like the picture above, however that is a more costly route. We can probably even get the wheels plated (copper, nickel, chrome, black chrome, etc.)!

I was going for a nice clean look, so maybe hyper silver or white maybe?

White on silver is a pretty classic combination. It's a timeless look that you can't really go wrong with. Some people prefer adding a bit more contrast though.

As far as white goes, I think they can look good, but they're harder to keep clean. Our pearl white comes out looking really good and has a bit more depth than a standard gloss white would.

How much is it to get a polished set? Say of 19" V703's?

Found another shot of the brushed V710s that I didn't see before!



All I can say is WOW.
