Trying to work out where in Scotland you are based on the pics so I can nip round for a look in the flesh because I'm sure my monitor isn't displaying colours properly. lol

If you like them that is all that matters. I'm sure we all have bits on our car that we like but others would screw there nose up at.

I think the wheels work well with the coachwork but the tail lights clash with the wheels.

Bastard Germans. ......Audi just didn't see those wheels coming, did they?

It kind of works, especially with that grey. However, it does kind of give you the same double-take reaction as when one of your mates casually announces in the pub "Yeah I was bored the other night so decided to paint my toenails"

Is this a 'one of your mates' stories?

If his toe nails were black, silver or grey, I can see why he painted them moominjuice.

Nothing wrong with a bit of colour IMO.

now THATS a really good idea.....

having given up the alcohol I have lost over 2 stone so can actually see my feet.

perhaps i can reach them as well.....

I will let you know how i get on.

as far as I can see the closest colour nail varnish to Mr Gees wheels is misfit red.....or is it guilty pleasure???

decisions decisions......you know what, all too complicated.....maybe i'll give it a miss..

Go on racks, you know you want to, be a pity to waste all that time researching nail varnish colours and not put it to good use.

Lets face it, you get as much stick as me for painting your toes, or will you?

Remember, pics or it didn't happen!

Racks... there's a nasty rumour going about that you have hooves.

BTW... good work with the booze abstinence. I tried it for 11 weeks last year but decided all those positive and healthy feelings were just a figment of my unintoxicated imagination. Hence I'm tucking into a limited edition Highland Park this week. Besides I had no excuses for saying outlandish things when sober.

despite the alcohol abstinence (although I am coming round to the idea that maybe beer shouldnt count) i still have a low boredom threshold so enjoy a challenge....

so i have to paint my hooves...(combining two posts here chaps)

LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!!!!!



twinkle toes hoof polish.......who'd have thunk it.....

At last, someone who approves of a bit of colour, cheers @SASHA.

Yeh, a few people have said about tinting the rear lights, think I'll try some flyeye and see how that looks, and of course there will be pics when done.

Who cares what anybody else thinks really? We all post on here of changes we have done but 90% of the time it's been done already so a case of 'yeah another A5 with white fogs or a boot lip fitted'. I admire your bravery and as long as you are happy then take the criticism with a pinch of salt. It wouldn't be my choice but I'm sure there are things about my car you wouldn't like such as the state of my car mats
Keep us up to date with any more 'wacky' mods you choose
