    Personally I don't like black wheels so would choose silver.

    Why do i feel you know you want black. But you want reassurance?? I have a black s3 with silver wheels and im getting mine powder coated gloss black. Those wheels are awesome looking to by the way. Will really suit black on black. Only my opinion though. Daz

    Personally don't like black on black. Gunmetal grey? Does look nice on black s3. If it's a choice between black and silver I would go silver

    I'd go black for those specific rims personally.

    Before you do anything OP I would suggest getting those smoked rear clusters of your car...

    I bought the car with them on. Dont think there too bad personally. If a cheap set of standards ever turned up then I would change but for now other things to be bought. Cheers for the photos "freek" quite helpfull!

    Anthracite if you are interested.

    Depends what look your going for. Silver wheels on black car look tidy and clean, almost standard looking. Black wheels on black car look stealthy, but i think to achieve the right look with black/black you'd have to tint a few other things.

    On my ming blue a3, I've got matt silver wheels, clear indicators but headlight inners tinted, looks subtle.

    I'm sure it wasn't that long ago, I was reading on these forums people raving about STEALTH. darken the grille, dark wheels, tinted lenses, logos (sometimes removal of them!) etc. I cringed at most of those stories. it was bordering on the Audi-anonymous club.

    anyway, Anthracite wheels don't look too bad on certain coloured cars, but generally you can tell where i stand on wheel colour.

    they look like gloss black - must be the angle of the photo.

    btw, I have always wondered what the overall look would be with classic carbon fibre cover on the alloys - especially on ming blue car.
