Really liking the look of this, am tempted to get my wheels done black now
 

I'mRonBurgundy?

Lets make that kitten purr...
Not feeling it if I'm honest, I think its the dark wheels. But I am looking forward to seeing the result of all your plans.

Nice car, I think Black wheels on a dark car look amazing on the day you wash it and give the tyres a nice sheen, 5 miles later though the tryes start to look Grey and the whole thing is wrecked!!!! Looking forward to the updates! :rockwoot:

It's looking good Chris some good mods mate I am begining to like the black alloys some guys are putting on at the moment, something to think about defo.
I will trade you a go in mine when we meet up in April mate as I am interested to see what the tuned diesels are like?

Keep up the choice mods mate.

Looks good! What sort of power is it kicking out with your mods? Have you had a rr done?

Looks great mate! More and more people doing black wheels but its getting a bit of a chavvy mod round my way, there are loads of corsas outside mcdonalds that have have had their original alloys "rattle canned" black.....probably whilst still fitted! so when i see a set, it always reminds me of them!

Solar Orange for the respray? Would look class with black wheels/mirrors

cheers for all the comments guys

gaz m ye mate would love to see how the s3 goes, i asure you tho you will be impressed with how mine goes i am, had a play against my dad the other nite he has a 55 330d and left him for dead and he couldnt beleive how he couldnt get near me lol cant wait for the brakes mate got the cash in my sock draw ready lol

b19ctr, im unsure of the power mate as it hasnt been on the rollers due to jbs telling me you cant roll cars with dsg box's which i think is bull and they just couldnt be bothered tbh, do you know if this is true or not as i realy want it rolling?

lee-r mine are powdercoated mate not rattle can lol i know what your sayin tho but i like black wheels and will go with my plans, solar orange u say :p

Love it! Hat's off for the big changes!

Never a fan of Orange but Black and Orange is a good combo!

NOW I can appreciate the black alloys :icon_thumright:

absolutely amazing love your car, if mine had lower mileage then I would consider this but think I need to get another 8p A3 and do something like this.

Been looking forward to seeing this, and it was worth it! Chris your car is sexual! :hubbahubba:
The gloss just puts the finishing touches perfectly :wub:

Loving it Chris, very, very nice.
When I finally get my S3 I was thinking of getting the rear diffuser "wrapped" in gloss black, rather than spraying it, but not sure how it would look against Suzuka Grey ? Will have to see.
Love the Audi rings in black as well.

Looks awesome! As much as I couldn't drive an orange car myself, I still think it looks really good, and what an amazing transformation, you must be so chuffed!

I'm looking to get a car (not the S3) resprayed at some point soon, would be grateful if you could share some details of the job?

This looks awesome mate, and the workmanship looks 2nd to none!
Nice job!

on that subject your bonnet needs adjusting, its a tad low on the corners nearest the bumper maybe its just the photos though
