    Liquid Blue, but what colour wheels?

    I own a 2005 plate A3 Sportback 2.0TDi Sport (remapped) in Liquid Blue. Just had the rear windows tinted 20% which has smartened things up.

    Has anyone changed the colour of their wheels on a Liquid Blue Audi, and can they post some pictures to show how it looks, pretty please?

    I'm thinking maybe refurbishing the current ones to Titanium...

    have to say i disagree with the trend here... silver looks good on Ice Blue. the darker wheel wouldn't look right. 'Shop it and see...

    if you want something different i'd go for white, but probs not with your wheels. something like the A4 DTM wheels in white would totally set the car off

    GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN:
    2005 Ebony Black A3 1.6 Sport tiptronic. You will be missed!
    1997 BMW 316i Coupe M-Sport. You won't be missed quite so much!
