if you had privacy glass, i'd have said go black (would've been the full "drug dealer look") so i'd say leave as they are.

Once you go Black there’s no going back Mr. Green

It’s funny how I was on black rims before that looked really good and kept planning to get the rear privacy glass sorted but never got around to it now I’ve put these rims on I’m not so sure about powder coating them black or about the privacy glass

Have thought about just buying a D5 with all the toys but settled on a 5 series xDrive and keeping this

Had a run down to Devon and back on Wednesday in the BMW and now questioning that decision- wish I could make my mind up as nothing compares to a real Disco but high mileage ones can be a pain in the wallet Rolling with laughter

If you want the all black look why not change to a RRS and really low profile tires and “sporty” (= dodgy) look Whistle

Stay with silver, please. Thumbs Up

Done the Gunmetal route already, but it always looked like the wheels needed a wash Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter

Funnily though I have a full bodykit like in your picture Ron sat in the garage, with new exhaust tail pipes and the big front bumper bought it but never got around to fitting it.

Confused Confused

I only chose to do the rear end 'body kit' as I preferred my own front end conversion.
Good luck on the wheel finish btw Thumbs Up

Bought in a moment of madness as I wanted a black HSE at the time to fit it to (had a silver one in those days) got the black one and never fitted the kit - seen one without the silver panels on which looked a big improvement, it always looks a little large in the chin department- like Jay Leno with a Landrover badge Rolling with laughter
