MR Powder Coated 219M Wheels?

I have an Alpine White with Melbourne Red side grills and hood vents. Plan to get the IND mirrors in MR. What are your opinions for MR on the OEM 219M? If anyone has sweet photoshopping skills post a picture of them in MR on an AW, thanks!

I plan to get TE37's after my next deployment but can't wait for the color combo.

UPDATE: THE WHEELS ARE COMPLETE! Better pictures to come after my German winter wonderland has passed.

I don't think I would do red with those wheels. Maybe 359/ZCP ones.

Are they going to be used as DD or track wheels?

I'd say "yes" to track...

Was thinking the same thing but wanted to get more opinions on it. I sent you a PM on the DCT info for your tuning. Paypal payment sent for the tuning group buy!

It depends what look you are going for with your car. If you are going for the unique show car look then I say go for it. Will prob look cool with the other MR accents.

Do whatever you like! My car is SSII, and I sent my 359M to powder coat RED too. Will see how that turns out.

Wheels are done but I am not home until the 1st. I couldn't get A75 so I decided RAL 3200 for powder coating. Here is a sneak peek!

Alright gentlemen here it is! I am ready for good and bad comments, in the end I freaking love it and never will regret it. I plan to do the mirror caps. Anyone think this will be too much?

It's an Iphone picture without springs or my PSS's because Germany winter sucks!

Looks great!! Red on white is beautiful IMO. I too powder coated my 359M wheel red, and I love it. My car is SSII tho, will put it on in spring to see how it looks on my car.
