I wanted opinions, if I should get the Chrome housing or if I should get the Black Housing... Not sure what looks better!?

Match it with the rest of the car. Black wheels or chrome wheels... Black/ Chrome mirrors? Rings, grille... Depends if you have chrome or black on any other parts of the car.

black housings, chrome stands out to much, chrome only goes good with silver

Depends if you want to black out the whole car or not. I have a Volcano Black 2.8 and I would never put blacked out housings on it. I like the chrome accents.

Yea I'm with biketsai on this one. Chrome housings look awesome especially if you have silver wheels.

And biketsai, your car would look great with some chrome mirror housings or covers, just my .02 [:D][up]

I would go for it man. I think it would look awesome. Pretty cheap little mod to give some contract to the black.

Here's what I got: black mirrors, chrome rings (no plans on putting them black), plasti-dipped grille surround, in-pro smoked side markers, black with machined lip 17" ASA's, tint all around. I guess those are the things that matter in order for you guys to get a good idea. MORE PICTURES PLEASE... I'm lovin' them

OP: I think this picture wins. I would do chrome housings. Comes of really clean to my eyes.

Shhmaudi, why'd you go two piece? If you were gonna get new lights why not just go for the one piece conversion? Just wondering about it...

The previous owner replaced the lights.. I really like the 1pc chrome 01 headlights. I would run them if a good deal came along for them. However, I am going to need to get the harness from ecs to run them.. The black housing has really grown on me tho. I really like em.

O true. Yea, the black looks good I was just wondering why 2 over 1 piece that's all. Makes sense though.

This is still one of the cleanest, best looking B5 A4s on the web in my opinion. I went with B5 RS4 replicas for my summer setup but could not find the thinner spoke design like yours..Where did you get these wheels?

Oh and I have chrome housings on my dark green A4 and I think they look great. +1 chrome.

I'm actually surprised no one has suggested it yet, but I think when the time comes.. i'm going to crack open the headlights and spray the housings flat silver. Subtle, and would look fantastic on that b5 up there. Vw guys joeymod headlights all the time, i'm not sure if there is something preventing this being done with the audis..

I don't think it's possible with our headlights. Or it's a huge PITA.

I like this look! I also have a valcano black, and I personally think there can be too much black.

Yeah, I haven't split a set. There must be a reason I haven't seen it done yet. I'm sure someone must have tried this before.

B6 guys do it a lot but for some reason it hasn't moved into the B5 area yet...
