    Anthracite or gunmetal alloys on silver 8L S3??

    After much searching on forums and google searching I cant find a picture of a silver 8L S3 with the above..
    Iv got the standard 17" alloys on mine and want to keep it OEM looking but was thinking about getting the wheel colour changed.
    Has anyone got a silver car with the Avus rims but in gunmetal or anthracite so I can have a butchers at them??
    Or if anyone has a link to another thread i may have missed??..
    The only other thing I could think of is a photoshop but im no good at it so if anyone wants to have a go I would gladly share a pic to use..
    Any help is appreciated..

    Nilzy has one, to be honest, any dark shade looks good on silver S3's.

    That pic gives me an idea..I'm liking the glossy finish..cheers for that Spartan..
    If you can get your pic up as well tardinabox that would be good..

    Thought black rims had been done to death and I think the gunmetal or anthracite would keep a classier look..

    My cars black but I had my Avus wheels refurbed anthracite a few months back I loved the result. The wheels do seem suited to being darker in my opinion.

    Is the outer ring of the centre cap a different shade or is it just the light? Almost looks to have a hint of purple??

    I wanted the anthracite version of my wheels but the gloss black came up way cheaper.

    Here's black with brown fronts (brake dust)...
