    Just had the wheels redone in graphite :-)

    from the standard silver, which had a few curb marks on them (bought the A3 last month)



    to this almost black, graphite.

    Added a Votex style roof spoiler also.

    I had planned on them being done matte black, but the guy conviced me to go a few few shades lighter and keep the metalic finish ????

    I like them mate. However, I think your daughter in the front seat is getting a case of vertigo from being up so high in the air

    Needs a nice drop now !

    Thumbs up

    The first couple of pics I think the wheels looked a bit darker than real life... looks good though. As for dropping it, it's a must. I find that the combination of H&R Sports and Koni FSD's is perfect. The springs are stiffer than stock but the shocks are softer than stock so it balances out, someone on this forum suggested to me that that's the best combo and they were right. My car has a smoother, firmer ride on this suspension than on stock. Only thing killing it is the 19's... feel almost every crack in the road with them on.

    Think you made a good choice getting talked into the Graphite instead of the matt black.

    Hey, may I ask...

    how many alloys did you repair curbing on, and how much did it all cost in the end?
