I've voted leave as is mate. Not a fan of totally Black wheels as you know. However, it's your motor and your choice.

Might look good with some kind of dark wheel colour, but not Black IMHO.

I like the black mirrors and rings,I would go for black wheels too.it creates a good contrast with the brightness of the "yellow"

Don't think you need to change the wheel itself though, I like them and suits the car.

Mirrors Yellow too??

I agree, black wheels, black grill, chrome rings and yellow mirrors.

You're not the first to mention the yellow mirrors! Could be a go'er!

I think black would be a bit much on the wheels, but a graphite color might give you the contrast you want.

Black wheels on an Imola car (or dark at least - anthracite, Titan, etc). Black grill, chrome rings, yellow mirrors and personally I'd lose the tint or reduce it or just take it off the fronts otherwise to much black in my opinion.  I think there are better wheel choices for the S3 though, but depends if you want to be swapping things out after just purchasing and fixing.

Would like some 9 spoke alloys, like the rs4 ones in black or as you say anthracite, Titan, gunmetal, graphite!  Aren't these all the same!

Yeah all very similar colours, sure there's a subtle difference, but give the same effect. Surely they'll be a set on eBay/pistonheads up for grabs then stick yours up for sale on the same sites. What about v8 S4 alloys?

Edit, jut realised I think they're probably a different pcd on the first S3.
