Old style s-line wheels painted in Titanium - will it work on a dolphin Grey A3?

    Taking my car in shortly to have the grill replaced (had a bit of a bump and cracked it). So i'm debating on giving the car a bit of a spruce up - black grill, and having wheels repainted darker - same as the titanium wheels from black edition A3s (i love those wheels!) - only think i'm not sure about is (a) will the colour suit my 18" s-line wheels, and (b) will the colour suit my dolphin grey car?

    What do ya think?

    No its the old style s-line 18's used to get on the S-line models - think they are called 5-arm?

    I personally wouldn't do it. Lava Grey with Tit wheels is a bit like wearing a Blue Jacket with Black trousers... not good IMHO
