    looking for some advice, on astra sri 08 silver

    hi people ive got a astra 08 5dr silver car and been thinking if to have the windows tinted only light black, and alloys spray black now would this be cheap to be done? do you think it would look ok on a silver car? nice on black.

    is it cheap to have them sprayed does the paint peel after time or is it ok?
    also with it being 08 ill probly keep it for a few years. would it go against me if i go to sell it down the line to a garage.

    i really dont know - i know some have stayed on for years and years...

    some have peeled
    some, even though have been on long, dont work! LOL :-D

    The paint should stay on for a while but the wheels will probably get scuffed so this will help the paint flake off so i would say it would last a year. Im not sure if it will look good aswell if the car was black it would look good im talking about the wheels here.

    ummmm unsure about wheels i keep away from the kerbs lol but not worth doing if paint dont stay on long?

    may look at the alloys what are silver and black?

    You'd be looking at approx £60 p/corner to get wheels powder-coated depending on where you're located. Not sure what black would look like tbh, silver is quite a generic colour (no offence) so black wheels could look like you're trying a bit too hard. Perhaps a gunmetal grey or darker shade of silver?
