    Hiya mate no too badly.... Am driving over to Macclesfield at the weekend to pick up a single Avus that i bought fully recond off ebay...got it for 15!!!! prob cost me 20 in fuel...so rather than have my damaged one done (which needs the full powder coat redoing) i think i have myself a bargain

    Anyways...was curious as to which TT wheels you were on about swappin, considered some others but i like the avus too much...even considering the A8 avus wheels 18'....cant make my mind up about yours..... what do you have on now? still these

    Do you mean the S4 18'' avus wheels?

    They're amazing, just fitted mien yesterday!





    TT comps are nice, but personally I dont think they suit the S3. They just dont fill the arches out enough.

    Yes them wheels look nice!!!

    They are the ones, but to get them involves looking forever, whih i cannot be bothered with.

    I still have the TT Comps on mine....but im more of an OEM person, so just want the car back to original look....

    However would the S8 18" Avus rims fit on an 8L S3, does anyone know????

    Not anymore it doesnt!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-S4-Audi-VW-...QQcmdZViewItem

    High quality Italian reps, 5x100/112, 8x18'' ET35 (perfect on the 8L)

    699 with nankang budget tyres
    799 with Avon ZZ3 or yoko prada spec 2
    824 with Eagle F1's or toyo T1r's.

    I got mine, with eagle F1's, for 824, including new bolts and lockers. and of course audi branded centre caps.

    Very high quality wheel, parked next to an S4 this morning, and they are IDENTIACAL, the dish, and all dimensions are exactly the same.


    Going to space mine 10mm at the back to complete the look I think.

    Yea i have seen them and agree they do look the mutts nutts, but 824 is still alot of money....however if you are in the market for them and dont mind paying that for them, then yea they are bang on....Prawn, the wheels look good and they really do suit the car...i think the spacers will finish it off and it will look bang on mate!!!

    They look very good, but are very expensive for replicas..

    If only S4 Genuine wheels fit as they go at a more reasonable price when they crop up. 500 ish..
    Shame the genuines are 5x112 though

    They are expensive yea, but they are bloody good. Unlike most of the nasty middle eastern reps, these are made in Italy, and are seriously high quality. I parked up next to an S4 this morning, and they really are identical in every way.

    Genuine ones can fit with PCD adaptors, but I am not sure what the offset of genuine ones is.

    I'm happy with these, They still look OEM, and are actually really rare still at the moment!

    They are hot prawn - good skills.

    I think a flat side view of the car would show them off best

    personally, if you mean the gallardo wheels, I would say S4 every time.

    I usd to be all for highly modified looking cars, but as I've gotten older, I want to keep it looking like something a factory may have produced.

    Also, much like you said, these are similar to my old TT rims. I loved the TT rims, but wasnt prepared to spend the money on new tyres and a refurb for the car to look NO different. I wanted to see a change for my 800!

    The good thing is though, now there is no time pressure, I can take my time and refurb these myself at home, and my old michelins have a good bit of tread left, and are hard wearing, making them perfect for winter wheels! Once refurbed, the TT wheels wont look TOO different to these, so the appearence will stay similar.

    I can understand why you like the way your car looks, I love mine at the moment

    Also, I havn't noticed any real difference in ride comfort going to 40 profile tyres on the 18's.
