    So I've got a red a3 with the sline kit fitted also h nd r springs , I've got some bbs ch alloys fitted which I'm getting refurbed just can't decide if to have them silver again or a dark anthracite colour what's everyone think anyone got any pics with anthracite against a red a3 Im not to keen on the shade that audi do on the rs4 a against the red I don't think it sets them off . Cheers dan

    I suppose its more a personal choice but when I was looking for an A3 - I saw one with anthracite BBS and it looked good.

    Well you've got your black grill why not go for a satin black? Get a black on red theme going? White can also look good on red cars

    I was going to look for that exact photo to put up - suits the red perfectly, but also has black grille.
