Thanks!

Sure does!
I remember seeing that you had them refinished in bronze; glad to see this other angle.

Looks great, but I'm sort of leaning towards gunmetal or hyper black...
Still, appreciate the pic!

Well, here we go.
Platinum Bronze on Singapore Gray.

Not sure, honest feedback, please?



Fitment is still a work-in-progress..

I THINK it can work..hard to tell from the lighting in that photo..more natural daylight photos would help. For it to look itís best imo, I would suggest de-chroming the car.

So funny, I thought the same thing as soon as I went to pick up the car.
Will look at options, luckily it's not much chrome left..

They're actually growing on me, in the sun they're fantastic.
Fitment will be key, as soon as I get the rears sitting flush, it'll help.

Thanks for the honest feedback, fellas. Really appreciate it.

Any more daylight pics? Perhaps swapping the roundels would also be an idea

The roundels you mean the centercaps or the emblems themselves?

Centercaps: I actually ended up liking them. I kept them off at first because I wasn't sure on the red logo, but when I put it next to the wheel, at certain angle you see the red M line and it works well.

The emblems: I do like the OEM look, and the blue ties in the calipers and when the car is nice and shiny, Singapore Gray has a tiny hint of blue flakes in the metallic (maybe just me, but I see it)...

Speaking of emblems, and going back to the de-chroming idea, does anyone know a good option besides blacking the rings out? I'm thinking color-matched, but again, not sure/haven't done much research.

I bought color matched wrap, its perfect to each color. Did the chrome trim on the doors and the chrome on the side vents

I fancy the silver more than the bronze on the Gray.

Thanks, guys.

The 433's, of course OEM is the best option for that style.
Mine are growing on me... just need to de-chrome the sides as been suggested, and dial in the fitment.

Also adding a few aero pieces here and there will help with the overall design. I think it'll work.
Will keep you posted, but fair warning, I mod slowly. lol.

Thanks again for the feedback.

lol. It's actually body-matched Singapore Gray with the chrome slats.
I noticed it the day after I purchased the car (second-hand), so I'm sure original owner had it painted.

Another shot:


Looks cool, in my opinion.
Will de-chrome the sides of the car, but was thinking of leaving this alone.

I like that a lot and almost considered the same before going with CF. Personal preference in the slats but i would go black
