Could not agree more with this, not a fan of black wheelsc_w said:Black wheels have hopefully run their course - obviously people can choose whatever colour they like but the stock R-Line colour looks great, a smoked silver(?). Black wheels cheapen vehicles (IMO!) and is quite common on scabby 12yrs old A3s and Golfs.

Here is my conundrum. I want to buy some kind of hood guard or foil as in Sweden there are a lot of small stones in the roads and it is given that you will get a few stone chips a season. Now, the thing is protecting the car with expensive foils that do not take away from the cars beauty (that much) is too damn expensive and I would need to make a 5 hours ride to go to the place and maybe sleep in overpriced Stockholm hotels a night or two or take a relatively expensive train ride back and forth. So the expensive non-beauty-intrusive solution is not viable for me. So, there are these other less elegant but slightly more economical solutions. Price wise, it is still expensive, but i am fine with. However, it takes away so much from the car, that to me it feels like you have married or committed to a long term relationship with someone you trust and still continue having coitus with condom on. It just does not make sense! I mean for who am i protecting the car? To get a better price when selling? So, preserving it for someone else while having "condom" on it during the whole time I am owning it? But what about the chips in the lovely hood? Aaaaaah.....!!!!
