I'm also with you on the gold wheels, not a fan of it. The only time I would add gold to the AMG is on the body. Gold wrap with some sporty black wheels. Once complete it will look like something that Mercedes themselves should have come out with.
That does look really oem and it stands out beautifully. That little pinstripe to brake up that rim and tire ties in perfectly. If I didn't read what you wrote first, I would have thought the body color was oem.
