I agree... it does look meaner, but more of a tuner look in my opinion. I don't know if I'm willing to take that route. Regardless I'm probably just going to see how both of them look.

& I agree 100%. Gunmetal gives me too much of a tuner look imo.
i feel you on the 20's... gunmetal IMO makes a car look , for lack of a better word... dead. doesn't contrast well with LP or any color. or maybe it's because i'm a silver wheel type of dude.

That color combo does look really good, but you need a drop asap man. Looks like you're off-roading with that car.

If you have an F sport, gun metal (w/ tint). Otherwise, silver works well.

Haha, stock height on bigger wheels so it just looks weird.

I have the luxury model, but I can still go gunmetal.

Of course you can. I was just trying to keep in mind your comment above about the "tuner" look. Personally, I would go dark finish, but the silver is more toned down, and on the luxury would look good as well. GL

I've always been a silver wheel guy too. As a matter of fact for the first 9 months of owning the F Sport I wished the wheels were a lighter color. But I have to say the darker color wheels have started to grow on me. Now I'm leaning toward the darker color wheels.

I think silver looks good too but my vote slightly leans toward GM.

I don't think it really matter whether you have an F Sport. If you want a sporty look you definitely want the GM. For a luxury look then get the silver.

Another benefit of the GM is that it blends in nicely with all the brake dusts you're making lol!

Yes man! That's another major factor that I was thinking of. My car has a terrible excess of brake dust. Gunmetal might be a better choice for me since you wouldn't really be able to see it. I wonder if there's a brake pad for this car that doesn't release so much brake dust.
