Next will be the wheels getting them powdercoated gunmteal grey at the beginning of April as not a fan of the diamond cut look.

Here are a few pics of the splitter installed:





Looks really great.

And your right I see lots of white GTDs but my neighbor owns a red GTD, are street is coming down with VWs ��

Getting the wheels done in the beginning of April after all this winter weather
Same, my idea was not too dark so you can actually see the rim and not too light that you have to constantly clean them. And with mine being matte it's harder to tell when they are unclean too which has been ideal in the weather we're having lol

Yea i found that black hides the rim to much also i have had rims done before on my old FN2 Civic type r and the gloss looked amazing against the gloss red paint they were powder coated. Here is a pic of the old wagon, loved that car. From the pic of your car the rims dont look that matt more like a semi gloss. My Black editon A3 had matt rims

They look really good Stevo and IMO much better than the diamond cut finish. The contrast with your white GTD works well.
