    Well, i'm picking my car up on Wednesday and really looking forward to it now!!!

    It's Zenith Grey in colour, and has the 18" Andromeda Alloys on it. All 4 wheels are kerbed so the first thing i'm going to do is get them refurbed....

    My main decision is trying to decide what colour to go for? I'm thinking Anthracite, but would that look a bit bland with the Zenith Grey paintwork as it'll be almost the same colour?

    What about Black??

    Another option i thought of was to have the actual spokes done Silver, but have the inner edges and inside of the wheels done in Anthracite similar to the Mk5 Monza rims:

    I still think Grey could look good but has anyone done this? Can anyone photoshop it so the wheels are Grey?

    Sorry for the hijack but these pics were from another car i found for sale in the same colour:

    Anthracite looks good on Zenith. These are mine (although I had them done a slightly darker anthracite last year, this when when they were new on):

    I am also thinking of using these guys in manchester, have you had a quote yet?

    Nick G I have the same 18" Andromeda Alloy wheels on mine, and I am thinking of having the same colour but with a little bit better shine. The colour is in between silver and Anthracite, so best of both worlds ;)

    Someone edited the pic for me and made the wheels dark but i wasn't keen..... Those BBS wheels look good in Grey though, but then they'd look good any colour :)

    I think i might just go for standard Silver, and maybe just have the inner part of the wheel painted dark grey and maybe the sides of the spokes??
