    On the front, no. On the rear, yes. Be proud of your rings.

    I prefer them left alone, certainly on the front. When a car has blacked front ones, it looks like someone has stolen the rings leaving qa placeholder behind, if you see what I mean.

    Debated this a lot, I think it actually looks better to have the contrast of the silver rings against the grill, especially on a black car.

    It's certainly personal preference but I haven't seen a picture of a B7 that has blacked out rings which looks right. Maybe you need to try red rings, might look horrible but then again....

    Anyone know if you can get like gunmetal chromed rings...Think that would make for a nice middle road for those of us who don't want to totally black out our cars.

    Mine is blacked out except for the Audi rings, s-line badges, and wheels, and even the wheels are going to get partial blackout treatment on them

    I looks like from a distance you wouldn't see them, I might try a different color then black, look into something that could stick out from the black and go with the gray, or just leave them the way they are
