    Not feeling it if I'm honest, I think its the dark wheels. But I am looking forward to seeing the result of all your plans.

    Nice car, I think Black wheels on a dark car look amazing on the day you wash it and give the tyres a nice sheen, 5 miles later though the tryes start to look Grey and the whole thing is wrecked!!!! Looking forward to the updates!

    Looks great mate! More and more people doing black wheels but its getting a bit of a chavvy mod round my way, there are loads of corsas outside mcdonalds that have have had their original alloys "rattle canned" black.....probably whilst still fitted! so when i see a set, it always reminds me of them!

    Solar Orange for the respray? Would look class with black wheels/mirrors

    Never a fan of Orange but Black and Orange is a good combo!

    NOW I can appreciate the black alloys

    Loving it Chris, very, very nice.
    When I finally get my S3 I was thinking of getting the rear diffuser "wrapped" in gloss black, rather than spraying it, but not sure how it would look against Suzuka Grey ? Will have to see.
    Love the Audi rings in black as well.

    Looks awesome! As much as I couldn't drive an orange car myself, I still think it looks really good, and what an amazing transformation, you must be so chuffed!

    I'm looking to get a car (not the S3) resprayed at some point soon, would be grateful if you could share some details of the job?
