    I’ve had my model 3 for a month now and I decided to get my alloys powder coated because I’m not a fan of the silver.

    They are dark grey satin and I’m very happy with the result! Next job is to get the chrome wrapped to match.

    The result you have now got it to looks perfect. Just my opinion but I’d leave it there. I think the chrome compliments the grey satin.

    Ha - I'm thinking of getting my 18" grey alloys painted silver. Really don't like dark coloured wheels - but each to his/her own!

    In Glasgow, near Kinning Park that would cost you around £250-300

    Looks great. Been looking for examples of dark grey wheels on a blue M3. My winter wheels will be gunmetal grey and I was a bit worried.

    To answer peoples questions:
    • They cost about £100 each
    • I don’t know the specific colour code. I believe they are Tesla sonic carbon grey with a satin top coat instead of gloss. I let them choose and I’m very happy I did
