Great to hear. You'd really think they'd be more pics on this thread considering it's about wheel refurbishment. :)

Well, I agree!

My wheels started out as ones that I bought off a forum member and they had very recently been resprayed in silver which I thought was too bright and didn't suit the car.













Then I got them refurbed in Sept 2017 and asked the refurber to get them as close to OEM as possible and he said "no problem, I know what you want" but I think they turned out too dark and didn't quite suit the car again!













So, I'm hoping for my next refurb that I'll get somewhere in the middle!

Pic overload, I'm sure, sorry haha :)

Got to agree, I think that colour looks spot on with the grey

Yep, another vote for how they are now; Spot on for your colour car. I'm hoping mine look that good on my black car.

I think that looks similar enough to mine as it is now. I think I agree with all here that the darker shade definitely looks better! Would still like it slightly lighter, but no where near what it was when it was fully silver!
