    I've wanted those wheels on my car for soooooo long, but had to spend the cash on other things first, they look every bit as good as i imagined, and not a bad price either.

    i can forward anyone the details of the company who supplied and fitted them for me if they interested, yes i will lower it but by the bare minimum, 30mm max i heard about recoiling springs so maybe jus 20mm i really enjoy the ride of bog standard s3 suspension very comfortable, got afew more plans in the hat and slowly but surely i will update this page ! thanks for the comments guys!

    Love the wheels. I'm thinking of getting these wheels for my BM.

    Small question though, is your car a Quattro? Will it not mess things up running a staggered set-up on a quattro?
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...

    yes my car is a s3 quattro, i have kept the rolling radius the same and tyres aswell so no issues i believe the haldex systems compensates upto 5% so no real issues there had it all double checked before applying this setup.... the wheels are called 3sdm 00.1 .....i was gonna go dark or black but i thought no need to be different so im glad i chose these rims suit the car was unsure right up until fitment!!! once its lowered ever so slightly it will look good!

    Ali I saw that pic of your car with the new wheels on your mates phone yesterday at Stockwood!!! LOL. Showed your mate that his black R32 has been repaired a bit on the headlights etc. I take it they are both your mates or only the one with the purple S3?

    looking good. Be very wary of parking near kerbs - looks like you need to get as close as possible looking at the width of your road.
    Those chrome mirrors look and match well with the overall package.

    thats the thing i was gonna go for a dark colour but i thought no every one has dark wheels now so i stuck with silver, once it is lowered i know it will look better!
