    BBS Wheel Center Color Choices

    So in my never ending changing mind, I decided to go with 17's to complement the Mtech II kit when it's installed. Custom BBS 3 piece RCs with RS Super Center caps.

    So my question is what color for the centers. Nogaro or Sparkling Silver. I have had Nogaro before and I love it, but maybe thinking of going a shade lighter.

    The lips will be polished. Below are both options, dont mine the wheels, ones an RC ones and RS, they are just there to represent the color choices.

      I'm currently in the same boat, considering Sparkling silver, Nogaro, Powdered chrome, and Powdered Black Chrome. EWheelworks has examples of each.

      I'm leaning towards powdered black chrome. Nogaro also seems too dark to me.

        Ohh what does the powdered black chrome look like?

            I like that is that a mix slightly lighter then Nogaro but darker than the Sparkling Silver?

              Why not both!?! After looking at the pictures and link above I think personally i'd go with Nogaro.

                Nogaro. And I just learned that you can setup a poll on R3V!

                  So I ended up going with something different than both. Paul uses Cosmic Grey which matches BMW Nogaro. I spoke to the powder coating company he works with and asked for samples that were in between that and silver, really I just wanted it slightly lighter than Nogaro, and something different because I had that color twice already.

                  So here it is Southern Silver. Pretty close to Nogaro but just a shade lighter.

                    Post some photos after they're done. I opted in redoing my pair of RS's in anodized silver powder coat color. It's the closest they had to the original BBS silver plus they were the cheapest around town. I'll post photos once they're completed.

                        Is sparkling silver the closest thing prismatic colors has to OEM silver?

                          Not sure, Prismatic doesn't make sparkling silver its another company. I forget who he uses for that.
