    How bad an A3 can look (winter sorted)

    Just stuck on my winter wheels and tyres, 15" seat leon alloys (I know they need some more paint).

    As much as it looks rubbish, I'm quite liking the idea of black wheels, might get the standard ones powder coated while they are off - what do you think?

    (Also opinions on the grill, its a cheapo ebay mesh grill that i mounted a badge onto)

    I thought my S3 looked bad on 16s! Only kidding, way I see it, it's something to look forward to in the spring when you can put a nice set of summer wheels back on.

    Sensible mate, well done.

    i could tell you - but then id have to kill you......

    Yea i hated the chrome surround but wanted to keep the badge, so i tried that and i think it about works. A word to the wise though, a £15 ebay grill does not fit well at all!!! it took me ages to get a halfway decent fit
