RE-INTRODUCING MY 428i (Caution! pics overdose!!!)

She's only four months. Right from the beginning had a few mods. Here are some more. Powdercoated wheels, H&R Super Sport and rear exhaust.
Therefore it’s necessary to re-introduce it

I love the car and I love the photos! Some of the best photos and photo locations I've seen on here in a while. Great work!

Those are some exceptional photos and I really like the bronze wheels + mineral grey colour combo.

Not sure how I feel about the gray lip on the wheels though...

Great photos, you've got an eye for composition.

I love the car by only quibble is the grey lip on the wheels. Makes them look smaller than they are and it almost looks turquoise from a distance (although not sure if that's just color balance issue in photos)

I had many doubts about how to paint my wheels for a good combo and not seem "boring".
When I saw this, all became clear!!!



The color is very similar (more coppery mine) Don't know why uploaded pics to flickr have changed tone. In my screen look with a warmer tone ...

Now that you mention it, the wheels do look more copper than bronze in the pictures.

I'm actually torn between choosing copper or bronze for a set of winter wheels later this year lol.

It's a hard decision, so the best is coppery bronze like mine

Fwiw, I think it would look better if the inside lip was bronze even if you keep outer lip grey.

Either way, great car
