    Red rings!!!! Oo er Missus...

    And when I say red rings I mean of the Audi kind!!

    My car is a black S3 and as you all know the S Line and S badges are red, what are your thoughts on detailing the Audi badges in the same colour, chavvie or not? I was also thinking about having the Alloy rims trimmed in the same colour.

    Thoughts please. Pics if anyone know of it being done before.

    Many thanks

    I'd try photshopping 1st. You might pull it off on a black car but I'm guessing it could look tacky.

    Red rings may look ok, red alloys - Fail in my opinion but you never know. You wouldn't N8's would look good with purple alloys but looks at the comments he's getting....

    I'd say give it a try with the rings mate, could always try a photoshop first to see what you think.

    I think Ash had it on his and I'm sure I've got a few pics on my mac at home of 2 other black A3's with red rings from a forum over in america

    Yea it's a very marmite thing to do, but might have a look at the photoshop option, wasn't thinking of doing the whole alloy just round the rim, I may just go black and be safe!!
