    Ok i'm not sure what i prefer Chrome rings or Gloss Black. So i sprayed one of my spare Audi Rings Gloss Black yesterday and fitted it today while i was down my dads.

    I like the Gloss Black Rings because it makes the front end look alot more aggressive and stealthly (Is that even a word!). But then i think it looks abit too dark.
    Chrome looks good & compliment the front end & stand out more. Also with the chrome rings it goes well with the lower grey splitter.

    I'm still not sure, what you guys think? Could you please vote and if you dont mind making a comment on why you think ones better than the other.
    All comments welcome....

    Thanks
    Ashley

    I think chrome looks better, black would look better if the lower splitter was black aswell.
    I agree definately looks more aggressive though.
    Nice car

    You can have too much black! It starts to look like a cheap respray job where they didn't bother to mask or take things off.

    For me it has to be the Chrome as it fits with the Alloys and looks better aesthetically, however if you dipcoated the wheels gloss black or graphite grey I would say the black. Just my opinion.... Looking nice though.

    TAC thanks for the comment. You have read my mind, in january i will be putting some 18' BBS VZ in Antracite or Graphite grey. I suppose i can always just show each time i get bored and change alloys lol.



    Lol well spotted Tom! What does FTW?:blush: Thanks for the comments.
    After looking at some photos i'm starting to like the gloss black.

    Thanks for the comment Simon:icon_thumright: Lower splitter in black may have to get some one to photoshop that as it does look good on Ibis white and Phantom black S3 but Lava grey? Thanks again for the comments.

    Thanks Nate:happy:

    Nice you will haveto upload a photo once you got it. Lamin-x has been ordered :) Thanks for the input Mick:thumbsup:

    I agree with what you said about the black splitter on white cars but with the car bein dark anyway, i think it wouldnt look as good in black on your car, you wouldnt be able to see it..

    ftw is for the win..lol

    Mate, I voted Chrome but now I'm thinking black. Have you got any angled pics with Black? Might help me come to that executive decision. Car looks great either way.

    Aww i understand lol. Yeah should wouldnt get out of the car saying its too cold. I think i'll leave the lower splitter as it is. I think black may be a bit too much and ruin the look.


    Thanks for the input Mike
    :icon_thumright:
    I'll get some angled photos of the black one tonight just for you kkp :)
    Thanks for the comment.


    Blazin thanks for the comment. Lol i quite like the car looking like death as it looks quite aggressive but with the chrome it had some style.
    Thanks for your input blazin:thumbsup:

    like it, but feel its needing a break up colour to give some contrast against the overbearing black. The S3 has the silver mirrors to offer a colour accent.

    Wonder what Lamin-X would look like on the lights, with some PIAA ultra white bulbs!!

    Definitely heading very much in the right direction.

    Wonder if some company will develop an insert for the top of the facelift grill to prevent the need to change the bonnet...

    I think i would try to set it off by spraying the the 4 ring's and mirror cover's the same colour as the lower spliter. After seeing this car at some of the meet's i can see this growing into an A3 which will stand out from the rest. i think to try and go down a different route is a good thing.

    Thanks for your input Warren:icon_thumright: Think your right regarding breaking up the colour to give some contrast. Lamin-X should of been here by now:uhm:
    will have to contact them to see what happening. PIAA Ultra White bulbs would be good this weekend i think. Thanks



    Colin thanks for the comments. Think your right regarding trying a different route. Not sure what i'd go for but will have to wait and see.
    Thanks again for the comment:icon_thumright:
