    When I bought the OZ ultraleggeras in black it was with the intent of getting them painted in the near future. Well, finally they are done and I am very pleased with how they turned out. The pictures don't do justice for the color, as it changes depending on the light conditions. The wheelshop first stripped the wheels, applied primer, six coats of paint and finally clearcoat on the top. The process took a week to complete. Painting is one way to make an otherwise common set of wheels look unique.

    I think they look great!

    You need bigger disks and calipers behind those beauties though....

    Congratulations, your sportback is a properly tunned/modded motor!

    Thank you:icon_thumright: Getting brakes is in the plans, I am waiting for ECS tuning to release their more affordable brake kits for the A3.
