    Since day one,i was not happy with the way the OEM alloys looked.
    And especially for a Minimal Grey Linea,they looked pretty bland,owing to lack of good options and steering vibration issue,i kept on chugging along on stock alloys,till i got them repainted in this combo,i wanted a slightly lighter shade of grey,but somehow painter slightly messed it up,and turned it into dark grey,which looks almost black.Car was pretty dirty due to rains,will post more pics in a day or two.
    So here they are,i am getting mixed reactions,some say haute,some say not,what are your views fiatians?.
    Plus,i wont mind getting them repainted,so pour in your suggestions.

    Neat man!! How much did it cost? Did you consider powder-coating instead of painting?

    I'm wondering how it might look if we do the reverse of your case ie; Make the black spokes look silver and the silver spokes look black.

    Cost me just 2K,at the regular Du pont paintshop.
    I should have thought of powder coating them earlier,especially when i have a friend,who runs a powder coating unit.
    Your suggestion is also possible,may be if someone can do a Photoshop to see how it looks.

    Honestly, I feel that this mod doesn't suit well for the Linea. I feel like it is losing the elegance. The stock alloys looked good.
    It is purely my opinion though :).

    I also think the same as Ramesh,

    Akhsay, Please paint it in full black or full white, It will be really good.
