    yeah i think white is nice but now there sanded down they look white and i think they might stand out a little to much on a black car

    I picked up some eBay specials and tried them on my black MK4 for size before getting a refurb arranged. They were white already and before trying them on the car I wasn't sure if white would work but I felt it did. The OEM silver alloys just didn't stand out at all once I put them back on (with the help of Ffoeg in case it sounds like I'm taking too much credit!) so I opted for getting them refurbed in white.

    It is becoming a bit too common though...this is the wheels on before refurb and I should have dropped the car before pictures:
