Default Powdercoated my '17 stockers

OE 18's on my '17. Just picked them up from the powder coaters today. Prismatic Powders Highland Bronze with a second coat of Fog Clear. Wrapped in some new Michelin Pilot All Season 4's (255-40-18). I can say I love how they came out!

Looks great! I've always loved bronze wheels, especially on white.

Very nice. How very "Type RA" or "Series.White "of you.

Do you have your stock wheels on spacers? For some reason they look pushed further out that what I think I've seen in other pics.

Or is it the 255/40 tire playing tricks with my eyes?

Color combo looks great! About how much did it run you to coat them?

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Yes, I really tried matching the Type RA / Series White bronze as best I could. I even went to a dealer and took some pics and then ordered samples from Prismatic Powders.

No spacers. It's probably the 255's.

They ran me about $750 to coat. Not cheap, but it was a two-step process. Powders with lots of metal in them need a clear coat on them. The clear I went with is a satin.

Also, for some reason my car seems lower than the average 2017. I bought this thing used from a BMW dealer of all places and I don't think it has lowering springs, but I can't really be sure. Does it look lowered to anyone else? I just picked up a set of GTWorks Bilstein Trophy Cup coilovers so we shall see if it gets any lower than it is.
