Got her fresh from the shopfloor.
Didn't fancy spending an extra g on 18's + tyres, so kept the new continentals and had the stock 17's and front chrome piece plastidipped.

5 fine coats of matte + 2 coats lacquer 3 hours later..

The result?

Honestly, I have said it on other threads and I'll say it here. Please do not take offense to this, but I think the blacked out touring rims look tacky and cheap, especially in that finish. I feel like the machined look has a better look to it than when the rims are blacked out. Also, I feel like the plastidip would not last nearly as long due to the extreme temps in that area when braking, and will require constant upkeep or re-doing the paint job altogether.

The rest of it, I like :D
