I have just bought a Colnago EPQ traditional geometry in PR82 as shown in the link below (if it works)

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=62951

The questions I have and considering I am on a budget are:

Groupset: I did consider putting DA 9000 on as this is what I have available but the obvious choice is campagnolo. So just considering campagnolo I can either go for the older style record 11 speed which I can get hold of from a guy I know or a new 2015 chorus group set with the 4 arm cranks.

Wheels: I have some enve classic 65 tubs already but don't think they would work with this build so it's either Bora Bright ultimate, one, 35, 50 or something like Hyperion shallow sections.
I intend to use tan wall tyres/ tubs.

Finish kit: like the look of the Cinelli Neos as can get bars, stem and seat post but any other recommendations? Saddle could be a black selle italia slr and black bar tape.

Thoughts and comments would be very much appreciated before I waste money on trying to achieve the best look for what will be a modern bike with a vintage look.

Thanks in advance

Karl

Go for the older 5 arm crank. The latest 4 arm will look too "heavy" on such a beautiful frame. As to wheels I'd go low profile, Hyperons are a great wheel and would suit the build.

Deda or 3T for the finish kit.

Personally, i'd go for the Deda Superleggero stem (black on black), matching bars and post (if you don't have a colnago one).

Too many parts with logo's on them won't look good on that frame. You need subtle parts to let the frame shine.
