Hi,

I'm planning to change my order, but I'm still not sure about it... Please use the poll to help me make the final decision :)

In combination with a Storm Grey + Black pack + privacy glass + pano roof with black rails. I'm a 31-years old entrepreneur, what would be the best choice with the storm grey?

Thanks!

With all the other black options you've decided on, putting silver in amongst it all would be like letting a solitary Chelsea supporter in blue sit in the Stretford Road end at old Trafford.

I disagree, silver wheels brighten up an otherwise dark dark dark exterior.

For example -

or with a slightly lighter Ammo, black vs silver here in one picture towards the bottom.

Not sure what that bit of information has to do with it, but as an entrepreneur of a mere 31 summers, if you can't make your own mind up on this issue then there really isn't much hope! :lol:

. . . but FWIW, the obvious choice is to go for silver and grey diamond turned wheels, it's a no-brainer if you want to achieve a distinctive quality look, blades or venoms, both good-looking wheels . . . so, your choice . . but have you not considered that all black wheels basically look the same, whatever their design? . . black!

Ive been in a Portfolio loaner with 20's for the last 13 days!!! Hated it!! Got back in mine and I really struggle to see why people feel 22" are so firm. All they do in Dynamic mode is make it Dynamic. Handling is so much better!!

I went through exactly the same dilemma with Storm Grey. Originally ordered silver blades but ended up switching to black blades after seeing a Storm Grey car at the dealers with black wheels which looked great.

On 20 inch vs 22 inch wheels I went with the 20 inch because they are less vulnerable to kerbing and the ride was more comfortable after driving cars with both size wheels.

Why not get 2 of each colour, give you numerous rotation options too. :lol:

Hi Blaugrana, the wheels was also my main doubt and I'm going with Storm Grey as well.

And I agree with "F-Pace S" on accentuating the contrast:

So my choice was between 19" Bionic and 19" Fan gloss black (yes no 22" wheels :roll: ) and I've chosen the later because mine is a Prestige - with chrome side window surround - without the black pack. I wish I'd have some photos - anyone :?:

In your case, Storm Grey WITH black pack - my preferred option is the Venom silver (and grey) wheels.
Otherwise I'd suggest you the Black Blades.

Here's a photo of a Storm Grey F pace with black wheels that I took at the dealers. This was the reason I switched to black wheels. It looks great, right?

Looks great indeed! These are 20" blades?

Don't worry about comfort levels I really felt little difference. The main "comfort" element is the suspension.
I took 19 inch portfolio out and you could feel a deader / distinctive end to a bump just but the thing I really noticed most was the car was a bit more "wallowey" taking a turn at 20mph.

Check out the 22 double helix.

Looks stunning, I do regret not going storm grey sometimes though suprisingly happy with the black.

Those wheels are the double helix. Matt black wheel with gloss inserts.
