    Nice but they look a little too big, Im guessing there 19's? Tempted by a set of the 18in with anthracite centres in place of the MTM' reps.

    Yes there 19" i had mtm reps too, very good quality of rim and you definetly feel the difference. i was actually going to buy a set of genuine mtm but they stop making the ones i was after. anyway if ur not gona go bigger mate i think you should stick with the mtm reps the look superb.

    Why have it badged as something its not? A bit chavvy IMO. Otherwise it is an excellent looking car, the wheels really set it off nicely.

    If you like driving around in a motor thats badged as something its not then thats the main thing I guess.

    Personally I cant help but laugh when I see it. Nothing at all wrong with an S3 so I dont really 'get it' I suppose

    Overall i think you've got a really nice motor mate but the exhaust and rs3 badge are not to my taste but each to their own and the wheels look wicked!

    Is there not a chance those claipers will catch when it all gets very hot with heavy braking?
    My brembos have got so hot the logos are all brown now! I made sure I have a solid 5 mil clearance.

    I thought that, on a track day they'd touch for sure. However most people here dont go on tracks, so i didnt mention it.

    again the wheels look superb mate,couldnt think of a better choice of wheel for the s3 i would have bought some if i could have afforded some.Calipers do look scarily close.id keep my eye on that as dave said under heavy braking they will expand so what out for scratch marks on the calipers.also what exhaust system is that.looks smart though

    Thanks dannotta all i need to do now is drop it on some springs/coilovers once ive sold my rear spacers... i dont track my car so shouldnt be too much a problem with expanding calipers, and its a custom exhuast with the same diameter as the supersprint.

    What does it ride like on the 19's and what size tyres are they?

    Defo my favourite wheel on the s3, i've got BBS split rims on my Manta, i love them!

    the steering wheel is heavier and you feel the bumps a bit more compared to 18"...
