    Ignore the `dislike` fella, my daft sausage fingers and smart phones dont alway get on and things get pressed in error.:salute:

    We really could do with a button to remove likes/dislikes for the ham-fingered among us...

    cheers

    :laugh: Glad you like it Tom, I'm only

    Yeah grey was my original thoughts, I need to get them machined first, then I'll decide on painting them :wub:

    What choices do you consider wacky Paul? :laugh:

    Nah these aren't the right wheels for purple, but I do have a set of 20"s that I want to do Purple again in the future :wub:

    Tbh Rich, I think red caps and gold centres, as I have 3/4 people lined up to buy these already, I don't plan on keeping them long :wub:

    I understand the purple, but with 20s, remember this is a diesel on air ride, not a 320bhp S3 like yours ;)

    isnt there another set on here with the above finish? akoya and gold dont do it for me N8 but it is your car.
    matt graphite (not too dark) would do it for me, maybe purple centre to add that N8 touch.
    (hopefully got my grill btw :ninja:)
