These look almost like the Niche Targa. Another vote for GM. I agree GM gives more mean-ness which matches the wheels and the F Sport more. IMO the structure is a little thin for Silver.

Like I said earlier, if I had the F-Sport there wouldn't be a question. I'd definitely go with Gunmetal, but I have the luxury.

The silver does go very well with your car color

I'm definitely with Blueprint on this one -- the silver with gunmetal "rocks" for me! I'm biased as I drive the silver F-Sport as well -- gunmetal Vossens lowered on Tanabe's are part of my short-term plan too! But you're in a win win situation regardless of the choice you make!

My bad... I didn't read all your posts. In that case, IMO you should leave your wheels alone for a few more months and re-evaluate. Something in these wheels that will grow on you and makes it difficult to change. You also have Silver which IMO takes away the aggressiveness (if there is any) from the luxury model which in turn makes it more difficult to match an aftermarket set. They may clash with the car. I have a black luxury and I think it's more forgiving but still haven't found one that I would give up the luxury wheels for them. Many aftermarket wheels look nice themselves but when they are on the luxury, they don't look as I expect. Good luck with your decision/search. I still vote GM if these are the only choices.

Thanks. I think its a perfect combo with gunmetal on silver..sporty, yet not over the top.

Haha nah man I really like these Velgen wheels. I already decided on that, now I'm just waiting for the Tanabe springs to arrive!

I would have to completely disagree with you about the liquid platinum taking away the "aggressiveness" from the luxury model. Some people argue that the luxury model front is more aggressive than the F-Sport, which I do not agree with, but no way in hell does liquid platinum take away from it, lol. My friend saw my car yesterday for the first time and the first thing he said was "Damn bro, the front looks so mean."

Too bad they look really good in silver, but too small for my taste. I want 20s! lol

& I agree 100%. Gunmetal gives me too much of a tuner look imo.
