    DPM are doing a group buy on UKmkivs selling the 18" for £550 wheels only, each wheel weighs approx 10.1Kg and comes in either 5x112 or 5x100 so suits both generations of A3/S3.

    I'm really tempted but would like to someone else to take the plunge first so they can check out the quality, if a bit closer to the north east I'd take a ride up there.

    Hope this helps..

    cheers jim. by the way EssThree im not saying the reps are stronger then the originals but dont really see the extra 1500 worth quality to them for me, but if you can afford them why not! ash the quality is very good and if you do curb the rims it cost 20-25 to put a new lip on as the garage told me. but i must say that from having light weight 18" previously ive felt these are heavier then them but im not gonna be tracking my car or doing 1/4 miles drags. they look good and im happy.

    I knew the 'fakes' were single piece...these people will tell you anything to get you to buy them!

    As for getting the rims re-diamond cut...if you really kerb obe, there isn't enough alloy on them to re-cut.
    You'd need to weld them up and then turn them down...as the lips are pretty thin.

    Basically...in my view, you either buy the cheap fakes and throw them away when you bend or kerb one...or buy the BBS which you can rebuild.

    As you say...the price difference is pretty big...so you can afford to bin quite a few fakes for the cost or a real set.

    Your jokin!!!!!!
    My tt reps fit fine with no spacers!
    suppose the spokes are further back in the wheel to allow for the 'deep dish'

    thats right due to the deep dish you wont be able clear ur calipers unless you grind the inside of the spokes but that will just weeken the wheel. sorry mate
