    What colour and why?

    Hello All,

    In the easter holidays Ill be refurbing my RS4 alloys and am undecided weather to keep them standard silver or go for anthracite or simular.

    What colour would you refurb them in and why?

    Here is the car to give you an idea of colour..



    Cheers

    Gunmetal/Grey/Anthracite goes really well against the silver. Or at least I think so

    I did think of doing them black, but think it would look like i had poverty spec steels on...

    Agreed with DT^^^^, black is for gays!!! Darkest i would go is anthracite/gunmetal etc.

    Nice pic DT, an A4 used in anger, not seen much these days, where was that then?

    That picture is brilliant, dont know weather I would dare run mine round a track. It would end up in bits knowing my luck lol

    Grey does suit the overall colour of the car and a agree about black.

    These were the wheels I had on my old mk4 golf..



    These wheels were powdercoated black back and front to start with and then gunmetal on the front. Then the faces of each spoke were blasted in a chrome affect. I wouldnt be going to this level with the wheels on the QTS due to the expense and it will never be a show car.

    But Im thinking a base of black and then the front of the wheel in a grey?
