    S3 Alloy can any one help?

    Hi all, I discovered over christmas while changing my brake pads that one of my S3's alloys is a replica, and even worse its got the wrong offset. Id rather not pay the 280 that Audi wants for a brand new one so does anyone have a second hand one for sale or know where i could pick one up from, does'nt need to be perfect (dont mind if its kerbed as i need to get mine referbed) just not flat spotted or buckled

    Can get them from Vag parts, 190 for wheel and cap. Not cheap but cheaper than Audi.

    IMO £190 is very good for an OE "18 wheel

    cheers for the advice people, although vag parts show it being 190 after you add VAt and postage its almost as expensive as audi, i'll keep an eye open on ebay, anyone know what size spacer i would need to make the replica sit out as far as the others? its ET is 35 were as the audi ones are 32, does this mean i need a 3mm spacer?
