There was a 2015 GTi in Red for sale at the dealers when i bought mine that had the wheels powder coated gloss black.
I didn't like them.
IMO the wheel design works as Diamond cut which is what designed for, but i'm not sure it will look good as a solid colour wheel due to the 'spokes' being so wide.

Just washed my 4 week old GTI PP - used neat zip wax and agitated with a brush, left for a few mins, power washed away, look great with no harsh chemicals

Slightly off-topic but I'm having my 18" Austins re-furbed next week  (£300 for the set, seemed pretty good deal I thought) - just wondering what products people would recommend I use to seal and protect them when I get them back?

Good question actually.
I'm having my wheels done tomorrow- 3 days job, so wondering the same.

Gtechniq stuff is brilliant, got it on mine and makes them so much easier to wash and keep clean.

Just what I was about to say. I use the C2v3, 2 coats, quick and easy to apply and lasts well. Also very good on all glass. They do a wheel specific sealant but I haven't tried that.

Detailer did mine over 2 years ago along with the ceramic paint coating and it's still brilliant today.

I used Gtechnic C5 initially and then C2v3 when i wash afterwards. They always come up lovely.
