You know, with the bright Silver Spokes as yours's are right now and that Flat Black or a Shinny black Brake Cover . The Wheel would really jump-out at you, as it would be so different from what most people have seen before...I think the brighter Silver the Spokes are the better....Love to see Photos of that! Sot of something new!

I don't know which Black would look best? Shiny or Flat...I would need to see them to make a decision....

Not the best scenery as it is parked at a friend's house, but the Jag was freshly washed and waxed and I had to take a few pictures.

I have been thinking of getting the wheels refinished in Dorchester or a similar color and changing the center caps back to new original red ones. What are your opinions? Can anyone photoshop the wheels that color?

Talking about ride height, that middle pic, from the side, shows perfect stance. Height is perfect, cool body moldings from the 2004 spec and none of those horizontal rubbing strips on the doors.
Just clean curves, how it was meant to be. If the suspension was off by a few MM, you'd notice it.
Nice attention to detail and a jolly good job!
