    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! :rockwoot:

    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

    cheers for all the comments guys

    gaz m ye mate would love to see how the s3 goes, i asure you tho you will be impressed with how mine goes i am, had a play against my dad the other nite he has a 55 330d and left him for dead and he couldnt beleive how he couldnt get near me lol cant wait for the brakes mate got the cash in my sock draw ready lol

    b19ctr, im unsure of the power mate as it hasnt been on the rollers due to jbs telling me you cant roll cars with dsg box's which i think is bull and they just couldnt be bothered tbh, do you know if this is true or not as i realy want it rolling?

    lee-r mine are powdercoated mate not rattle can lol i know what your sayin tho but i like black wheels and will go with my plans, solar orange u say :p

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

    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?
