new look looks like wheels are dirty from the brake dust... I like the old one better. To each his own though.

The bronze looks odd to me. But all that matters is you like it.

Looks good either way but prefer the bronze as its something different and a bit more individual.

OP your car looks great. Can you briefly describe the process of refinishing your wheels (Paint ? powdercoat ? time ? cost ?)
