I'm not sure lol i like Pauls and Jims theres are black, although Paul's car is black and Jims is same as mine, it looks nice on both, but they have Stock Alloys where i don't so this makes the decision hard!

Wonder if red would look good behind silver alloys, your car is black so may do! As for tint that would look nice i was also looking at doing that i saw some 35% tint not to dark.

What colour is that then thought yours was blue that looks black? That does look good but I just think the chrome sets it off !! Think yours would look better because of the black alloys !!

I believe his is the DunkalBlau same as mine, looks black in some images and blue in others depends on light. He will correct me if i am wrong i'm sure But i am pretty sure he said it was blue lol

If you see by these two images the difference in light / camera angle looks black till i come to the side!
