    Morning peeps. Just a quick one today. Having just bought a new Ibis White S3 I am now waiting for a BE grill to arrive which the garage are fitting. I have also bought a set of new gloss black front and rear Audi rings. Black for the back and was going to paint and lacquer the front ones white but have seen pictures of black rings onblack grill and it looks nice.

    What is everyones opinion on this. Black or White Audi rings on the front???

    I think white on black will look really cool dude. Not a lot of that styles around. Are u getting the BE grill gloss black or the standard colour.???

    I've seen one picture with white on the front and wasnt really convinced but thought it might look not too bad. The pack of 2 should be here tomorrow so will inform the garage to fit them as is. If I wanna change the colour later on I will.

    Silver... black on the rear is cool on a white car though, but silver on the front every time!

    Matt's is the exception, not the rule. White rings only work on an all black n white car, and especially with that grill!
