    Do you think that Shadow chrome or chrome would be a subtle upgrade, esp heavily laquered and mega shiny,,,,

    I love the sparkly silver really big flakes etc somehow the Astra Xp 18"s always seem to be so bling bright when you see them must be the large reflective surfaces between the spokes.

    I need to refurb the mrs's RS4's on her golf and am going to do a DIY chrome aerosol then over laquer to match the original sort of finish they had as they were badly kerbed when we bought the thing and need tidying up too.

    I'd leave them silver then to be honest... thought if he was doing you a favour it would have been good to try gold

    One of them has been refurbed in the past as the lacquer is peeling and one of the others is a little kerbed (from the previous owner i must add)

    So they do need tidying up anyway and tbh I would never get them done anywhere else!

    I do like the idea of gold but i dont know if im brave enough to try it!
