Mercedes-AMG A45 New gloss black wheels

There is a lot of mixed opinions on the standard AMG Wheels with the silver trim running around the edge. Since getting my car in November It has been bugging me and wanting the car fully blacked out, finally got round to getting them powder coated gloss black.

I had half a bottle of C5 left in the garage so decided to put it to use on my new shiny wheels and still with some left managed to do all the black trim what little there is on the exterior.

Hope you all like as much as I do.

Things I've done to it so far:
- Silver rear badges all to gloss black
- New gloss black front star emblem
- Front grill bars wrapped gloss black
- Front windows tinted
- Front & rear lights smoked in dark film
- Private reg plates tinted and gelled
- Wheels to gloss black
- All new tyres to Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S

Going to leave it like this for a while, but in a few months will be looking to get Calipers done in either yellow, lime green or blue.

Nice looking Merc,,I think that is the best model so far & yours does look nice in all black. I’ve just got my wheels back from the powder coaters,I’ve done the barrels with C5 earlier & I’ll do the faces tomorrow,,I’m surprised how far C5 goes on wheels,I’ve done nearly 3 sets of 22’s with a 30ml bottle.

Thanks Andy.

I don't like the new 2018 A Class I much prefer my FL shape. The all black look is great when its clean but after 1 mile the car appears dirty again lol.

I know I took all my wheels off during the winter, used C5 for the first time and was worried about using too much but it just seems to last ages on the cotton pads. This time had to apply with wheels on car so just did the faces. Don't think I'd bother with C5 again to be honest i'll probably just go for Race Glaze Nano Wheel Sealant for ease of use.
