    My 18" ttrs reps i got of reesy are looking a bit sorry for themselves and I'm going to refurb them.
    My s3 is silver, and for me, the silver wheels just look dull dull dull. I really fancy sprucing them up with a colour. Black is the obvious, but I've been toying with graphite grey, white, or maybe even a lairy red or orange!
    I realise this won't go down well with the purists, and they will tell me to sit down and stop being silly, but I just want to make the s3 stand out, but in a good way obviously.
    I'm rubbish with computers, so haven't mastered the photoshop technique, but I thought I'd see if anyone has any thoughts.

    not a huge fan of coloured wheels, but i saw a silver porsche with split rims which were silver/baby blue. looked quite rude, not sure it would work on your wheels tho

    see i LOVE oem wheels in bright silver, they look clean and fresh. but like you i wanted something different:

    on my ming blue S3.

    i dont think this colour would suit your silver S3 but i think a gunmetal in a similar darkness to the grey blades/bumper inserts would work well.
    alternatively you could be brave and go for a dark bronze/gold colour, that would contrast nicely. as an example:
