    you would need pcd adaptors though wouldnt you? im fairly sure the mk5 golf is 5x112 pcd, as its the same base as the 8P

    I think you can get replica's with 5x100 PCD - but don't hold me to it. I've seen them on a few MK4's. Not too keen on them myself. Never seen on A3/S3

    IMO I think A3's or S3's should stick with Audi wheels and Golfs stick to VW wheels... I see Golfs with RS4's on an I think it just looks stupid...They are nice wheels though, but not for an Audi! Just my opinion.

    theres a few replica 18's on ebay... they say it fits an A3.

    Actually, i may be mistaken in thinking these are the ones i saw on the A3, i saw it again this morning and they look similar but are more angular than round... they also had an audi badge on them... ill see if i can find a picture.

    *Edit* found em



    Think you can only get them in 17"

    anyone any ideas

    Ok I can agree that there are some exceptions but i see so many Golfs around my way with Audi wheels on...even with the Audi centre caps on..it just dont look right .......I 've even seen a new shape Beetle with RS4's !! I mean come on??

    Anyway, thats just my opinion...

    The signature you got of that A4/S4 is a nice example of how to it.!

    There is alot of Golfs near me with Audi wheels too,mainly old shape RS4 and those A8 things.
    Do look daft with the Audi badge still on them.
