    They look sweet mate! Do it. Proper dub stylze. Know what you mean about colour coding though, could complete the look well.

    I've been thinking about merc wheels and colour coding all the black bits since i saw g werk's passat in littlehampton. The combination off all silver and polished wheels looked really good.

    I reckon they look mint! Love that A4 and the wheels just set it off! One of me mates has the same wheels on his Golf 4-motion and they just look soooo good!
    Keep the black bits I say, not a fan of CC'ing, the contrast suits the car well, all silver just dont look as good.

    I'm a bit of a photoshop Yoda, post a decent size pic of your car and I'll do the tints and colour code it for you.
