    I'll be getting these simply cos my colout scheme is black, dark gray and green, so the blue looks out of place, I already have the black centre caps and it looks miles better already!

    Not saying this just because I did them as well, but the black items on a black car work perfectly. Not sure how they would look on other colours, but the cf type items dont look out of place on a black motor.

    But, and this is weird, every so often I find myself thinking of going back to blue and white for the bonnet. the wheels are staying black though as they seem to suit it better.

    when it comes down to it, like anything, it is personal taste. your car, your choice.

    Hi all,

    Great comments and good feedback - thanks everyone.

    Conclusion - think I am going to try and upgrade the whole lot bar the steering wheel badge... seen some dude destroy his wheel trying to get it of on Youtube (put me right off)

    Just surfing the net trying to find some decent quality roundels. Checking out (c3bmw.co.uk) just now as mentioned in a previous post

    Next... black kidney grill... wife is not having any of it though

    Thanks again everyone

    Was thinking the same mate. They look pretty genuine as well - right? Good quality you think?
