To go black Turbines or not? That is the question...

12 posts in this topic

So, I want a set of turbine wheels on my 523i, should I get them done in gloss black? My e39 is silver with chrome trim......

That car should be on turbines. Unless you're planning to pimp other things on the car though, I'd stick to the standard colour.

I think black wheels look a bit low rent tbh.

As a fan of black alloys... No, they won't suit the SE, sorry

 

Stick with silver, a sparkle lacquer finish would look well IMO

 

But, at the end of the day, it's your car, so you do what you want!

NOOOOOOOOOOO

 

Do not put black wheels on an E39!

 

Unless you are going to slam it to the deck, paint it white, put a massive pea shooter exhaust, add a horrible body kit, blacken the windows and put a massive stereo in it.

I say go for it! I can see what you're going for! Then smoke the lights, tint the windows and give the car a full wrap in Matt black, swap the engine for something that's got a V in its description then turbo it and supercharge it and throw in a squirt of NOS just for good measure! You might need to uprate the brakes and suspension as well but Dennis will go through that with you..... 

 

Or you can buy a corsa and destroy that instead! ;)

In all honesty there's not much that beats the classical and classy look of a clean E39 se IMO.

i think that's why alpina's are so appealing- understated yet classy! 

Dont get me wrong, the sports look good but everyone has them as they try to aspire to owning a M5! 

If you do any mods to your car then try and make them as subtle as you can an you will be amazed at the comments you get! :)

 Haha, I've had three e39's and two of them had black wheels, the third one would have had black wheels too if I hadn't sold it!

Black alloys do work... The car has to suit them though, with that, the stance/ride height of the car makes the most difference IMO

 

The blue E39 looks very well 8)
