    I have a silver b6 convertible with a black roof... A friend of mine has started his own business where he wraps cars, he gave me a good quote on wrapping my car white, if my car was silver with black roof sport alloys would it sell for more or if I had it wrapped white and put the 18" s line alloys on in black would that sell for more? It just made me think because I see more and more white cars now... Btw if I sell the Audi it's an Audi again I shall be getting hehe thanks

    There are 13 for sale on Autotrader in white at the moment, a couple have black wheels.
    They don't appear to be priced much higher than I'd expect..

    I'd say age, condition, mileage and service history will have a bigger effect on the price than the colour and wheels.

    I looked at a silver A4 Cab with red roof and red leather when I was looking for mine, but it was clear that the owner hadn't really looked after it, so I passed.

    I personally think it will decrease the value of the car having it wrapped, yes it will make the car look fresh but if i was buying a car id stay clear of one that has been wrapped as you have no idea what the condition of the body is underneath the vinyl. I do Vinyl wraps as a bit of side work and id say if your keeping the car for yourself then yeah get it wrapped in the colour you want but if your doing it to sell then i think you have alot of people put off by it. A standerd car will almost always sell better than one the has had mods done to it as mods arnt to everyones taste. Your find alot of people who modify their car will put it back to standerd when selling up. Hope this helps :)
