color difference is minimal. i had the wheels/waffles ceramic polished. since they're different materials, the polish looked just a touch less reflective on the wheels than the waffles. once the translucent gold clear was put on, the waffles had a little more pop and shine than the wheel itself. wouldve take countless resprays to get them to match exactly, and I didnt want to spend that $$$.

Style 5 waffle cap is made of plastic, and its very difficult to powdercoat plastic, and have it colormatch the metal. so i had SpinFab make up a set of his Style 5 waffles/hex caps that are made just for this style 5's.
Yeah, I know they're style 5's. What I'm saying is that the design of the waffle isn't the same as other BBS wheels. The mesh of the waffle should line up with the spokes. Look at the RS pic you linked. See how it's a straight line down the spoke all the way from the lip into the waffle?
