Thanks

That looks absolutely gorgeous. The silver wheels to my eyes look perfect, no way would I be darkening them, but then I am a renown dark wheel hater.
I agree with you. Too many cars have dark wheels nowadays so seeing silver wheels somehow makes the car look cleaner and more elegant. I wouldn't change a thing on that car. Its spot on.

I'm also considering 570s on the market for another £10k on top of the asking price of above car.

What do you think?
Yes that type of Colour maybe slightly darker
I was also looking at the car you just bought. smile

Is the car you both the 616 bhp version?

Couldn't agree more. Some cars suit black wheels, some don't. This car definitely suits the silver alloys.

Diamond cut alloy wheels are never the best of anything in the UK! The daftest modern car invention since the touch-screen monitor-car looks great though smile

I like the diamond cut look - however, having stupidly kerbed a rear wheel recently, I'll find out next week whether they're able to stay diamond cut. If not, I guess they're all about to become stealth......

The body shop I use can actually paint in a scuff to make it look like it's had a diamond cut repair-might be worth asking if it's an option.

I was the same - I’d never even seen a 650s until it arrived !
