Any will be a win really!
Been put off by polished lips myself though because of how ugly mine got after a bit of wear!

Think I've decided, probably guna go for this look when I get the time:



Carbon Fibre wrapped front lip and Carbon Fibre wrapped spoke with lettering cut out of some sort.....in this pic I wrote GT86.

Cheers dude, had to photoshop those in to make it look right as my car has clear ones where as the american ones don't. Though the american's get the car so much cheaper than us brits ($25k which is roughly £16k), they do get bugger all with the car, no keyless entry with push start which is a must for me now days, slightly crappier head unit (uk one still pretty pants), no spoiler (which some like and some don't), coloured indicators rather than clear ones (plus I've swapped the normal amber bulbs for chrome coated ones which still flash amber), no LED daylight running lights, no fog lights, no leather/alcantara option and god knows what else. If you want all these, you would need to get the subaru version for a lot more money, where as here in the uk, the BRZ is virtually the same as the GT86.

Yeah, the ones I've posted up are all Rota Grid Drift wheels which I'll probably get from RareRims who seems to be offering the best deal on them, they can do it in black or white. So to get the same look as my photoshopped pics, I'll be using some carbon fibre vinyl wrap me thinks.....the alternative would be to get them re-painted.

Will be getting them in the next month or so me thinks!
