came out of work, got into the car as usual. took my girlfriend shopping and i notice a dent! a very large dent :x :frown: by the looks of it someone with a 4x4 with the spare tire on the back has just shanked it. will get a picture up in a bit when im on my computer.

only positive is i can look for a smoothed bonnet :D so anyone with an ash black smoothed bonnet, let me know ;)

yeh i do like white but as you said, it is the norm to have white alloys on black si's! i was thinking ash black, blend in with the car, like my wheel trims are now. looks really nice. but yeha, anthracite isnt it? i will get on photoshop and play around with a few ideas.
