Gone back to an A3, new purchase help needed :)

Hello,

I used to own a black A3, 2.0T which I sold a few years ago,

I've decided to go back to the trusty A3 and have put down a deposit on a 58 plate 2.0 Tdi 170 S Line sport back.

I am looking to get the wheels powder coated in anthracite, but am unsure as to whether to do the roof and wing mirrors black.

Is any more capable than me able to play around with these pictures for me please?

Wheels = yes
Mirrors = maybe
Roof = nope

Almost right ie wheels only NOT mirrors/roof.
Consider what a professional designer, not what we so called DIY experts would do. Note that some cars have Anthracite wheels as standard.
Too much 'messing' about with an original just results in, well a mess. Makes selling on difficult as I assure you Audi dealers or any quality outlet will not want something tarted up on the forecourt.

As a compromise, buy a set of mirror housings/caps and get them done however you want, but keep your colour-coded originals for if/when you sell the car on. Simple.

Mirrors, wheels but not the roof :)

Red & black trimmings always works imho.

Maybe its the camera but that red looks a bit lifeless. The bonnet looks a different shade of red compared to the bumpers too.
