    R32 wheels looks rubbish on an S3, doesn't go with the profile of the body, adn I think you will find that many on this forum aren't a fan of the A8 style wheel wheel neither, I personally would stick with the 17" TT comps. or if you definitely want 18's, try a set of BBS or the classic 9 spoke RS4/RSTT wheels

    sportec mono

    Hey,
    If I had 1500 quid burning a whole in my pocket, I'd go for the Sportec Mono wheels. They are the sexiest wheels you can get for the S3 in my opinion.

    Failing that, then I'd say RS4 wheels.

    Not a fan of those Momos, not 'Audi' enough for my liking, but hey what do I know! I had RSTT's for quite a while, at the moment I have the old shape 3.2 TT wheels (http://www.europeancarweb.com/featur...heel_View.jpg). I like them as their not seen on many cars, but hand on heart I still love those RSTT's.

    lower it first

    I definitely think that before you decide on upgrading your wheels to (most likely larger ones), you should consider lowering first. Just putting bigger wheels on looks wrong if the gaps are still there in the wheel arches.
