Hi guys I am in advanced talks with a seller if a Grigio Alfieri QP. However she is currently on silver birdcage rims and I think a colour change to Grigio Mercury might suit it better.

Has anyone this exact combo or have any input as to these colours? Silver looks out of place imo.

I changed the alloys on my 4200 from silver to Grigio Mercury, made a huge difference. For the better.

My 4200 was Grigio Nuvolari. So close-ish. Even though it's a completely difference car! :p

Grigio Mercury is near as **** it Gunmetal at the wheel specialist. Birdcage wheels on a QP, are you sure?? Only ever seen one

Haha i am trying to make the best of a bad situation! They are already in the car and i know a set if gts rims would be epic but they are a grand at least plus rubbers

Im not sure which rims the birdcage ones are, but I dont think you can go too far wrong going grey... worst case scenario, just have them refurbed again!

Another vote for grey from me. I like the birdcage alloy....That's the standard 4.2 GT ones isn't it ?

If it helps I think the birdcage ones may be the set I bought as winter rims for mine - they are 19" though. They are grey and I added a pin line around the inside before I fitted them. They were newly refurbished so the inside was spotless already.



;)When I bought the car it had the GTS wheels on it anyway (20") in grey too which tbh I wasn't a fan of so I had them re done in shadow chrome ..... I've also added a twin red pin line. Pictures below if it helps ;)

So when I first bought the car 20” in grey:



Refurbished in shadow chrome:



Twin pin line added:

I personally like the 19” rims in the grey and prefer the 20” in the shadow chrome

Hi Ian,

Lovely QP. Yes they are the birdcage rims you had on originally and yes those are the GTS rims I would like lol.

So the dark grey colour in the birdcage looks better on your Nero but I wonder how they would look on a Grigio alfieri?

Ps. where did you buy the GTS rims?

Hi Chris,
The car is officially Granito Grigio colour and it's a Sport GTS anyway so they were already on it but in grey. I had them changed to shadow chrome. I bought the birdcage rims as a winter set from a supplier on Ebay. They were shipped from Italy and as far as I can tell were originals. They cost me a grand + winter tyres.
Is the Grigio Alfieri a lighter grey then?

Where are you in the country Chris? My birdcage rims aren't on my car at the moment so if you wanted to compare before committing to changing the colour (if you're not a million miles from Oxfordshire), happy to oblige.
Cheers
Ian.

Very kind of you thanks. Well the car is in Exeter so without going onto google, I guess this is a bit away from you lol
