    not sure if its the light but your black rub strips look a little faded. get a heat gun passed over them and be nice and black again. also blackout the grill to match those rims, will look well. iv got a simular colour for my wheels once i can be bothered to do em.

    Great minds think alike ,I was thinking about doing the bumper rub strips and door mouldings the same colour as the wheels and poss the front grill too but don't want to go overboard with it
    cheers

    Mate, I hope you've destroyed them lights now you've removed them...

    Car looks nice, I like the wheel colour. If you paint the rub strips it'll be a good idea to get a few new clips because they're a bugger to get off without breaking at least one..

    It's a weird colour Devonlad as it started out as anthracite but i didn't have enough of it so i just mixed and played with the spare paint i had lying around the garage.

    As for the light's i was going to send them to you LOL
