I think the original finish on the 403m looks far better. However as I have already had a full set replaced under warranty, further down the line this is what I'll be doing when the inevitable happens. Gloss black is the next best option IMO.

Also what do u guys think about gunmetal instead ?

Just on my opinion, but on a white car I think it looks classier with either the silver finish or some tinted darker color. Black looks good too but it give the car a different, more menacing look. So I guess it depends on what look you are after.

Keep them as is. The photo of your car looks much better. On a side note, I was really disappointed when the NSX was unveiled with black wheels. That is a super car that doesn't need to join the bandwagon.
