    Well my S3 is currently black but have always wanted it white..

    Lucky for me i work for Fisher Motor Factors who supply paint to all the local bodyshops in Lincoln...

    So I priced all the paint up and have agreed a price with a customer to do the job... Do i keep a black roof or do it all white.. i will have the wheels painted black too

    All white, it should look pretty oem.
    Smoked chrome or anthracite on the wheels would look good.

    Was only available for the launch model year, was deleted for the 2000 model year (as was Mocha Brown & Ochre Yellow)

    White will look really good. What about getting a carbon wrap on the roof? I think it'd suite it quite well :)

    White all over with anthracite rims. Gorgeous. Black roof is tacky mate.

    Find the closest colour to Appliance White (the stuff they use on er......Appliances lol) as it seems to have a slight blue tinge which makes it look really bright and clean. Then throw a nice set of satin black/anthracite wheels at it and Roberts ya Mutha's Brother!
