Default Black Out Audi Rings and Rear Corner Reflectors/Wheel Spacers

Got bored today and not only debadged my Q8 but also had my front and rear Audi Rings wrapped to black them out until I decide to paint them at a later date. I have already debadged it yesterday on day 1 of ownership, removing the rear Q8 emblem, the rear Quattro badge, and the S-Line front fender badges. I left the Quattro badge in the front grille and also had it wrapped gloss black. I have hated the rear red corner reflectors since I saw those, so I also had them smoked, see pics below of all this. Planning on getting custom forged 23" Vossens soon with a wider rear setup for the look I really want, as I have hated the super tucked in look that the stock wheels have. Decided to check out the Q7 forum here and roll the dice that the spacers people were using there would work on a Q8 and after looking around I went with black ECS Tuning spacers, 12.5 MM fronts and 20 MM rears. They turned out phenomenally! The stance is much improved. Here are some pics of the wrap on the front, rear, and corners, along with some before pics of the wheels tucked in, and then with the spacers and the new stance. Obviously this isn't for everyone, but I think that some people will want to do some of the above, so here's how it all looks...

It all looks super clean and agressive. Great job, the wheels look 10 times better, thatís crazy how tucked in they are on stock in comparison. Can you PM me the cost to do the spacers, I may look into that. Iíve plasti-dipped my Porsche emblems black in the past and it comes out pretty well. Wonder if it could work for Audi rings and front quattro. I like everything you did...
