Can't help you choose a color, but you need to sort out the center badge alignment - growler's chin should point to the valve. ;)

I wouldn’t go yellow - shouts “I wish I’d have gone for ceramics” ;)

What colours your interior?

If red stitching, I’d say red is the best option
But it’s your choice, if you fancy it, just go for it!

The right blue might look good! Try the M135i calliper colour and see what you think.

Yeah, a lot ignorant wheel refurbers about! When I had my previous XKR wheels refurbed the guy who did it put the caps in exactly the right alignment - I was surprised and commented on it. He said he liked to pay attention to detail! :D

I have motorbikes too and I just cannot resist changing things, it becomes an itch I have to scratch. Often after a while I have changed back because it looked better. I like the Red, i have Red also.

in case anyone cared (unlikely :lol: ), i opted to buck the trend and go kawasaki green :mrgreen:

i really like the end result, and don't think the pics do it justice :roll:

although i appreciate it might not be everyones cup of tea :shock:
