    My brain isn't quite outputting things in an understandable order at the moment, so apologies in advance in case what I am about to type comes across as impolite etc.... I would explain contrast as being like two things not normally thought of going together, for example Green and Black's Dark Chocolate with chilli. Maybe in terms of your car- if Fresno Green is a metallic colour, then maybe the metallic finish of the anthracite RX2 wheel centres would pick up on the metallic finish of the body colour, same if you had an almost different colour on the RX2 rims then maybe an aspect of the rim colours would pick up/go with the other colours on/in your car? What about that metallic Corrado colour for the centres with metallic anthracite rims? Martin.

    Thank you for the info. Regarding what I said earlier about the logos, I am only going on what I was told by a company who refurbished a pair of rear callipers for me- they damaged the inlet threads during the work and offered to replace them with a pair of new TRW/Lucas units and when I asked them if the logos would be present, I was told that they would have to remove them if they (the logos) were still present due to trademark laws before they sent them out to me, I ended up sending them another pair of used calliper fists with logos to remanufacture.... Martin.

    The reason the logos are missing from your rear callipers is because only Volkswagen themselves are are allowed to supply them with their insignia on- and if anyone else supplies them, they are supposed to remove the trademarks....😢 What thread specifications are the inlets where your PAS delete bolts onto the steering rack? 😃 Martin.

    I would hazard a guess that “Eiffel Tower” might refer to a very non standard human production technique....😳 Going back to your RX2’s, that anthracite colour for the centres and a contrasting but complementary colour/finish for the rims?😃 Martin.

    These as an example of the colour: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F191914582738 If you go for the M3 wheel or something similar, the light tint of the genuine VW repeaters will pick up/compliment the wheel centre colour. Martin.

    @mscherryviolet Well hello....😁 Not doing too bad thank you😎 Getting back to your choice of wheel centre colour, what about some sort of metallic dark grey/black chrome? Martin

    @mscherryviolet You called my dearest? Regarding your choice of colour of wheel centre for the RX2's- I think if you get the rim colour right and other details on your car right, the Corrado colour in the photograph you posted could work rather well Coincedently, the first three letters on the German 'plate of that Corrado picture are my initials....

  9. I have been here since August 2014 when I got my GTi 😎 I tend to be quite formal as it is just the way I am, just ask @Rich about the exhaust I have for him.... Do I want to be friends? - why the devil not, be warned though I do have the tendency to rattle on a bit about car related stuff sometimes without realising it.... 😳😁 Ta ta for now.... Martin
  10. Good evening @mscherryviolet 😁 Martin 🙂 P.S. Before I get told off by a moderator for deviating from the original thread topic, does anyone have a concrete answer to the original subject yet?😎

    It’s an emergency flare instead of a warning triangle ? Just out of curiosity, is the tube empty? Martin.
