    What do you guys think, original or satin black.

    Satin black why not. It’s looks a lot better then I would have thought.

    Original. Black simply looks off.

    I’m also running LMR repo wheels on my R to preserve the original wheels and tires. The dark looks pretty cool in my book, but I’d recommend plastic-dipping the Cobra badges to match. The bright badges go with the bright wheels.

    I like the brightness of the original finish. It really accents the car so well. Gonna have to get a set of LMR repro’s myself to preserve my originals as well!

    Can you photo shop the GT350R in gloss black from LMR? I was thinking of getting those wheels. I like the black though, it really makes the red pop IMO.

    The black version just doesn't go well with a 2000 R. It's so synonymous with the silver finish. Black almost makes someone question if it's a real 'R'. JMO though. Go with whatever you're happier with. Are you storing the originals away, like Goose did?

    If you’re going black, having the original style center caps will look best.
    Awesome car.

    Black if you are a racer. Silver if you are a cars and coffee guy.

    I have an extra set of real Ford 2000 Cobra R wheels but in chrome. Some chrome ‘fading’ but definitely a good set of track wheels for a real R. I’d let them go for what I have in them.
