    I like the 2nd set, not sure how they'd look on an S3 though?
    My new set of wheels will be coming from www.bbslmreps.co.uk might be worth a look?

    Whatever you do don't get the Inovit DTMs [second ones], yes they look nice but they buckle easily.

    If you like that style and can afford it then do what I've just done and go for some Team Dynamics Mesh III alloys [8x18].

    I think the best of the 3x are the first ones. IMO Black wheels only suit a white car, or a dark car if the wing mirrors are black/carbon. The 19"s would ruin the handling. BBS are the best option but are .

    I hate the RS4's I inherited on mine (have had them before and the buckle easy, are common, heavy etc.). An alternative I've found and have ordered are DOTZ mugello's. Good manufacturer (german) and are black, with silver polished face (easier to keep clean I hope). At 500 just for the wheels its not a bad punt if I don't like them.

    BTW not ordered from above site so this ain't an advert!
    AMK Goodwood Green S3 - AMD 265BHP remap - Chrome Mirrors - Sunroof - Bose Symphony - DICE IPOD Kit - 18" DOTZ Mugello's - And a Yamaha R6 for when it doesn't rain!

    I quite like them Dotz wheels not a bad price either.

    I Saw a set of Lenso RS5'S (sell them on rochford) on an S3 they looked nice.

    Genuine LM'S would me my choice if i could afford them!

    Yeah those Dotz ones are great, i like them!!

    I don't think i will actually be buying any wheels soon (unless i got a good offer on mine with a simple swap) I just saw them on the bay thought i would get peoples opinion. I don't even think i would buy wheels of fleabay, not to sure about trusting it.
