I opened this, thinking Dietrich had created a new account just to troll us with someone's MK3.

But dear god, I told myself, this isn't Dietrich. This is someone else. And he's completely serious.

God help us.

I like the idea, I would have left the rest of the wheel dark gray or something, but I prefer gray to silver.

And I think blue calipers would pop more. But I really like the creativity. Reminds me of the black painted wheels but the opposite lol.

It's like a reverse take on the black pack wheels. Not a fan it makes them look cookie cutterish.

I'm digging it. I think it'd POP better on a bright orange foci or something though, but still pretty cool.

Nothing wrong with all chrome wheels. I like the calipers but the wheels......

I liked the stock wheels better, the reverse painted pockets make the wheel look tiny.

The gun metal finish of the 2013 SE 201A, or the black pack / optional 2012 sport wheels look better personally than this, however yours is unique.



Gunmetal version



Factory black painted wheels with bright metal lip.

Not a fan of the wheels or the red painted brake parts. But it is your car so do what you want. Is this miracle rub off paint called "plasti-dip" by chance??? Lol
