Car Color

Hello M5Board
I would like you guys opinion should I powder coat my wheels in a bronze color, or leave them as they are and just get my car wrapped in Satin Nero? I have attached a photo of my car which is a old picture. The things that have changed is I added Dinmann side skirts, a front lip and the calipers are painted yellow.

Don't you end up with a bunch of razor marks in your paint every time you wrap your car?

I think bronze colored wheels would look good on your car.

It's hard to see the color of your car in your picture but bronze looks nice on blue and other dark colors minus black IMO.

I'm not a big fan of powder coating only from a performance perspective as the heating process changes the molecular structure of the wheel.

Having said that, I wouldn't have a problem powder coating the wheels on my E92 328i but I'd never powder coat my E60 M5 wheels.

Why not just a classic hyper silver rim?
