    Hello and welcome

    Opinion: this will look terrible. The S3 is a beautiful car and can be enhanced with certain types of wheels but not by spraying them surely?

    I just think they end up looking dirty, like they're caked in brake dust. I think a clean set of alloys is all the car needs to look great.

    Try searching because there have been a few threads about spraying wheels recently.

    These are a very dark bluey grey, not the best photo to highlight the colour...

    Click on the image for full size...



    Just dug an old one out which highlights the blue tinge to the grey :-

    Are you thinking of something like this beauty? Bear in mind that these are 18" S4 alloys as opposed to the 17" versions on the S3

    I think it used to belong to a member on here, can't tell you who though? I know it was in the classifieds section a month or so ago with a &#163;10,500 asking price, and I don't know who bought it either so I'm not a great deal of help really!
