5 spoke is the one for 6 all day long! My only concern is the colour, would ideally be anthracite, but will do for now, especially taking into account the price, you can always re-spray in darker colour when they get bitten by UK roads...

Yep, that's an option...You can not see in the picture but they are gun metal grey on the inside with face of the spokes polished so with the colour of the car may suit....

I agree...I love black....but unless I get the chrome done will need to be lighter and currently I like the chrome...Never every thought I would say that about chrome.

If I go refurb what colour do you think.....I am looking at the charcoal/Anthracite.......LIke the gun metal but maybe too close to the colour of the car. Smoke Chrome may be worth a look as well....

I'd stick with them as per your pic - polished outer edges with black/dark 'inners'?

Definitely not black on a grey car though. Anthracite might work, but the whole car might look 'funereal'??!!

p.s Don't forget the chrome side flashes on the front wings! Will need to match?.........

If I go refurb it will be the wheels I have now so the two tone will not work....Not going to change the chrome pr silver side flashes as I like them but I am not a fan of silver wheels so its a bit of decision to get it right.......The only thing with the colour of my car is that its not true grey and has a bronze sort of tint to it in the light...Think it was called Stratus grey but not sure........

On things 6...Was at my BMW dealer yesterday and they had an M6 Gran Coupe...My God what a stunning looking car......Practically new and was over 30k off list price.......BWW can not sell these new and new ones and demos have a shed load of money taken off them.......At 100k they are silly money but now they are dipping under 70k it is a shed load of car for the money .... That's if you have the money that is and I certainly don't............
