White Platinum Tri-Coat
 
I have seen threads for most of the other colors, and I'm wondering what people with Platinum Tri-Coat are doing to enhance the appearance of their car and make them stand out? White wouldn't have been my first choice, but it seems that my dealership likes white vehicles, and this one was equipped the way I wanted it, so I took it. I love the Titanium "black out" features, and I'm looking for ways to enhance that, for example, I'm considering swapping for black 17" wheels. Here's a recent photo:

I'm hoping others can put up photos of their White Tri-Coat (or even Oxford White) cars that they've made stand out in some way. We may be vanilla, but we don't have to be PLAIN, right?

I think a nice gunmetal or darker silver/grey would be a lot better than black wheels. They wind up blending in too much and you lose most of the detail.

(Plastidipped the gunmetal/chrome lip rota RBs on my white 07 hatch and wanted to go back shortly after the wow wore off)

Wow, KibaWolf, that's impressive. You've worked hard and it shows.

The UPS guy brought my new "spare" wheel today, I want a full spare to rotate with the other 4. Maybe I'll just get these shot with white, they really are nice wheels.

I'm thinking about having all 5 of my Titanium wheels painted a gloss black, matching the fog bezels and black brows on the headlights. What do you think?

I personally think all black wheels cheapen a car.

Well, I'm in no hurry to decide; the silver/grey on them now isn't hideous. At some point, I'm going to quit pimping this and just drive it. [driving]

I think gray/graphite would look amazing on yours.
