    I like them but decent reps are mega money, let alone the real deals which will require a remortgage.

    eBay ones are likely to be cheap asian steel which will weigh a ton and buckle quickly.

    Personally, I'd stay away but it would be interesting to see on an s3. I've seen plenty of TTs.

    have to agree, i dont like them, think they are far too fussy for the smooth lines of the 8l

    Was thinking they were too angular and would not go but was trying to convince myself R8 V10 wheels sound cool! LOL !! Thanks for confirming
