    S3 facelift with 18" rstt wheels looks to sit higher?

    As I browse the adverts I've noticed the facelifts which has 18" rstt wheels seem to sit higher in the fact the arch and wheel gap seems to be bigger?

    We're the rstt wheels optional at facelift and is it just an illusion that the arch to wheel gap seems bigger?

    RSTT's were optional at launch but original cars should have come with the Gmbh -10mm suspension as well to offset the wheels.

    Most pics of cars now will probably either have had the RSTT's added later with standard suspension, or the coil springs have snapped causing it to sit lower...
