    Anyone got pics of A8 style wheels on an A3?

    Just wondering if they'll look good. Would the car need lowering considering its a sports spec model?

    Thanks

    Cheers guys, couldn't find any when searching.

    Are those a3's lowered at all? are they 18's on the bottom pic?

    Thanks

    i think the wheels look good but on the a3/s3 even though they still look good theres something about them that could be improoved on with other wheel choices, if that makes sense

    Maybe I should nick the 18 inchers off my dad's A8 2.8 sport when he's not looking. Doubt he'd notice the difference between them and my 17" AVUS' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    IMO... most definitely

    the 4x4 look is something i hate

    have a search for an old thread of mine, i posted pics of my A3 at various stages;

    std suspension / std alloys

    std suspension / 18" alloys

    lowered suspension / 18" alloys

    I see what you mean. Think i'll keep it standard for a bit and upgrade in a few months so i'll notice the difference.
