I like the look with the silver wheels.. much classier. Black wheels always look muddy to me. But it's a job well done on the actual process of changing the color.

Black wheel threads always show the clear separation between the old folk and the riff raffs.

Black looks great. I would go back to the OEM Roundels but that's just me. Why change one of the most widely recognized, good looking, emblums? Not to mention I love blue... Black wheels are always hard to capture in pictures but they do not get lost in person.

Well if they were only plastidipped then the sticker is still intact under the surface, no need to buy new ones... Just cut the dip off in the square around the sticker and it's fine.

Thanks man! I noticed that they didn't do that but honestly as picky as I am it doesn't bug me! I can always do it though if I wanted to

It's all good man! I'm sure your happy with the way your wheels look anyway!

I wish I did that too!

There's always the 5th, I'm the 5th unfortunately.....

I actually had them do Gloss Black with about 3-4 coats of the Glossifier after 3-4 regular coats.

However I do like Mercury Silver but rarely see them.

In the end its what you like. If you like black better then roll with it.
Yeah both looks are good, but for now I prefer this look

I just powder coated our M-sports on AW and am also very happy with the results.

I'm sure your M-Sports look killer! I don't sweat the small stuff...I know not everyone is going to like black wheels. That's good too, otherwise there would be thousands of M3's with black wheels (even though that's probably reality LOL).

Black/white theme going so I thought the same theme roundels would compliment it best

You must have missed a few key threads. Also, notice the black wheels on my car.
