    Best suited alloys for the s3 ? Ideas please...

    Hi im looking to change my alloys on my noggy blue s3 i currently have 18" rstt reps which are pretty curbed . Ive just picked up a set of seat cupra r brembos and want to show them off behind some mint alloys . So anyone have pics of a nogoro blue s3 on smart rims ?? was thinking of genuine rstt alloys or audi s4 . ideas would be great thanks will post some pics of my car tomorrow.

    You won't find a set for sale, you will be lucky to see 2 sets of 5x100 S4 reps come up for sale in a year.

    I had 19" Passat R36 wheels on my old one which I had never seen another S3 with them on

    The guy I sold the car too had them redone in Anthracite looked really nice...

    BBS CH's are the best suited wheels to the 8L S3, although i may be biased.

    Cant find any pics with my Brembos behind the CH's at the minute.
