Not sure whether to opt for the Silver alloys or Black ones.

go for silver/chrome ones with black machined inner faces. you get the best of both worlds! fully black ones wont look good IMHO.

Thumbs up

Hey Raj, thanks for the suggestion. liked a few in the Neo range especially the Killer Black Machined & the Hulk Black machined. have to check out the cost to know if they fall within my budget or if you have any other particular ones that might go well with the beast please feel free to suggest.

yes, some in the Neo range are good. but for alloys, i would actually suggest you go to some good shops (minimum 5!!!) & check out the latest designs & what brands they have. it is always better to invest on a good brand. and than select the best design & brand among all.

Nicely written mate. I love the color. I'm wondering why I don't see silver Scorpios in Mumbai..

OT:
@raj_5004
You had saved for a set of alloys na? What happened?

adzegeek,
no complains from anyone about signal loss, but most times i ride alone and i dont lose signals in the front, though sometimes i do wish i could, so that i could enjoy driving the "Dream Machine" undisturbed
Guilty on the lawbreaking part dude, a necessary evil, a very entertaining one most times when you see people at signals checking out their reflection and even brushing their hair.

I know what you mean - I take off after late night US calls undisturbed in the night to drive down on desolate roads.

On RE- I am a bit surprised - I have RE-50 on another car, and it is not reflective at all. I would be very surprised RE-35 turned reflective...I will do some groundwork as I have only narrowed down to VKool 70 for fronts and still wondering what to do about the sides.

RE-35 does become reflective in bright sunshine but at all other times it looks like a normal tint, so at night it almost looks like the light black tint. No issues whatsoever with visibility.
Have you checked out the pricing for the VKool 70?

@Cartman,
Thanks dude, less seen the better, makes my ride more exclusive.
