    What colour wheels?

    Hi all,

    Well Im finally getting round to purchasing some new wheels for my s3. Wrong time of the year as it's winter. But I can no afford them so I'll get them but use standards for the bad weather.

    I think I'm probably going to get bbs ch 18's either second hand originals or a good copy.

    Car is Ming blue s3.

    What colour shall I go for? Black? Gun metal? Silver? Or any other ideas? Also open to other wheel options!!

    Thanks!
