    Paul, the first car you posted was the one that inspired me to spray the inside of my headlight gloss black, love them lol.

    And I used to have your S3 on my laptop, didnt know it was yours.

    I've got black OZ Super Tourismos on mine ATM - I don't have a photo, though, will try to sort one out later on in the week.

    Here are some of Chris's old car from back in 2006 which inspired me

    The black RSTTs on Sandips pics, are those powder coated or painted mate? I am away to get a set of these refurbished and am trying to decide on a colour. Torn between standard silver or going black on black S3.

    Noggy Blue is by far the fastest colour,
    Silver or black are company car colours... not sport colours !

    I had mine done by The Wheel Specialist (Nottingham) in anthracite - the finish is excellent and although the colour is fairly dark, personally I think it looks better than black on my silver S3. Not sure on a Noggy to be honest though. Personally I'd go for a lighter colour or maybe the silver with black highlights (can't remember the name of this finish)?

    Not sure it would work on a blue car though

    Not shadow chrome i dont think!
    Not black chrome either!
    I know what you mean though they paint the wheel face silver and then do the inside of the wheels black and then that seeps through the inside of the spokes to the front of the wheel
    So it looks silver with the inner bits of the spokes in black!
    A bit ott though i think :O(

    Think im going to go with TWS sport silver 1!
    Itl match the brand new genuine caps i have as it has a bit of a sparkley finish to it and stands out even more in the sun!
    Although i really want to go black i just dont think il be able to live with it or sell it on afterwards when i get my RS4 early in 2011 !
