    SRI-T has its alloys back on :)

    I bought my car with bk racing 299 alloys in in gloss black colour. I like them on the car but decided i want the outside as standard as i can so ive been looking for ages to find a set of turbo alloys worth buying coz there was no way i'm paying 250+ lol. In the end i found these, sprayed in anthracite, in need of a refurb. but all for 150 quid

    before:


    After:



    opinions please

    btw i may refurb them in anthracite aswell as i kinda like it, although gloss black or white were my 1st thoughts

    i prefer the new ones. old ones too fussy. a nice graphite or gunmetal would set it off
