    Hi guys,

    Been thinking about possibly changing the colour of my alloys, but im unsure as to what to do?? I'm not keen on the "blacked out" theme....so any other possible ideas would be appreciated...alloys are the stock 18" RS4's....yes i know...need to go 19's soon...but until i find a rim that i love im gonna stick with the 18's... ;)

    A light grey or on the opposite scale, a nice hyper silver!

    certainly right colour, but I think AP did some silver calipers for the Renault Megane so can't tell. Saw some Alcons at AITP 2009 on a turquoise TT and they looked great.

    Bright/hyper silver for me. Look nice and bright and contrast with the black. Mind you, not that a black car is black very often with the weather we've had lately!

    Cheers guys for all the feedback...everyone seems to think shiney/hyper silver...still not convinced though....would match up nicely with the mirror caps i guess ;) Unless i just bite the bullet and look for a nice set of 19" in a diamond cut finish...

    I'm deliberating over exactly the same thing with my Phantom Black A3 and keep changing my mind. V6 Pete's looked awesome with Black BBS CH (or was it CKs?) but I also like anthracite and Hyper Silver - I'm not getting anywhere fast but as I don;t have the money top buy tyhem yet thats no bad thing! Whilst I was up as APS in Brackley the other day they showed me some SportLine Alloys that were Silver with either anthracite or black inlays. They actually looked pretty good in my oppinion but were bloody expensive. I'll see if I can find a link.
