    Got a black S3, Wondering opinions on having the wheels refurbed and then getting them coated white...
    I have the 18" optional RS4 or TT whatever they are wheels!
    Cant decide if they look too chavy or perhaps ruin the look of a standard S3...
    What are your thought?
    Any pics of an S3 sporting some nice white 18"ers more than welcome :-D

    There is/was a fella with White rs6 wheels on a black s3, he's selling it at the min the thread isn't too old so you might be able to find it, there's pics of it in there. It looks really good. I'm not sure how good rs4 wheels will look White though. Mine are currently getting sprayed a gunmetal grey.

    I was considering white with my old ones... (also RS4's) But didnt think they were best suited to white....

    The std alloys look good in white mind....

    Ok, thanks for the info.
    Yeh wasn't sure about White as a colour maybe looking too chavy, else I may try it with the rs4s.
    Don't have Photoshop to do a mock up unfortunately :-(
    What other colours would look good with a black s3 and rs4s?
    Gunmetal colours an interesting idea!

    Depends if you want a bit of stealth or bling, because a really bright shiny silver can look awesome too
