Pics HRE black lip charcoal centers on Silver E39 M5

Paul from US Wheels in San Diego had these powdercoated for me.

He checked to make sure all the wheels were straight and cleaned them up and had them powdercoated Black low-gloss with charcoal pearl centers

You need to paint those black guards along the sides!!!!!!!! They detract from such a fucking awesome M5.

i like the black mouldings on BMW's, just my preference

like on the E36 M3's, the black mouldings just work in my opinion

plus i have black/silver theme, with the black roof and blacked wheels

I agree. I wish the newer BMW's had the black side moldings like the the E36 and E39. I love the contrast especially with a white or silver color.

Sweet M5 by the way.
