    Re: New wheels

    I was tempted by some 19" Oettinger RZ's from Monty's but decided to go with the lightweight BBS wheels to reduce the unsprung weight and improve handling.

    I've been tempted by some 19" MTMs, but I'm swaying towards the BBS wheels - very nice!

    Better on the S3 than the RZ's. Photo's at the weekend please [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I'd like to see how they look on an S3

    How do the CH's compare to the old ones in terms of weight?

    Heres a quick pic sorry but the cars filthy I will post some better ones once I get chance to clean it. Each wheel and tyre weighs approx 3-4kg less than the standard one.

    Re: New wheels

    Thanks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    They are 25mm lowering springs mate.

    Looking at your sig I guess youve got a bit more power than me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    Look forward to seeing some pics when you get the eibachs on.

    Re: New wheels

    Are your BBS's 17's or is it just because your suspension is std height that they appear to look smaller than mine?

    Ive been looking at Supersprint exhausts myself, I was originally looking at one of their race systems but the tailpipe sticks out to far. Yours appears to sit very well I take it its one of their road systems. If I get one I think I will go for the oval tailpipe though.

    Re: New wheels

    Those are 18x8.5 so it must be that std height that make them look smaller...

    Exhaust is that 2,5" road-system and it seems to fit perfactly.

    There's not too many after-market alloys that look good on an Audi. They look great. Good choice!
