It's different & if you like it, that's all that matters. But... since you are asking for opinions... I'm not a fan either.

I think the whole flat black/black wheels thing is a generational preference . . . probably looks good to you if you're under 30 . .

For me, not so much - -takes away from the cars beautiful lines.

Your car- your call.

I'm not a fan of the look either, but it's all about what you want.

You could have used plastidip on the area first to see what it would look like, if you would like it or not. The plastidip could have been removed easily if you didn't like it.

I have been seriously and severely flamed on here for my opinions of black wheels previously. Let's just leave the whole matter at that.

at least it matches the theme of the car. i've seen some that did that with no other black accents at all...

I would prefer just the lower half blacked out, but it works with the wheels.

It Looks ok to me, Not my thing but it doesnt look bad. I would try and find some way to tie it all together maybe some flat black racing stripes or something. But it would look better without the BSM's with the look your going for

I think you are right about it being a generational thing, I actually really like how it turned out... I'm 26...

Since you asked, I will politely say nope...

But as I've learned on this forum these cars get personalized in many different ways.

By you asking I guess you're not sure if you like it??

Not a fan. I think it would look better if it were gloss black and if the wheels were gloss black and didn't have the silver piece in the middle

Return the wheels back to their original silver.
Remove the black rear paint.
Paint the lower "valance" panel satin black.
Paint the halo satin black (optional).
Tint all lights (optional).
