If you look at the before and after its really hard to tell the difference in finish between the OEM 18" and the 19" Gunmetal VMR V710's. Very Very close match and if pushed I'd say the VMR's are a slight shade lighter but not much at all. Also the Sparkling Graphite is almost chamelon-like in its ability it seems to blend in with both sets of wheels to make them seem factory matched almost paint wise.
