    new s3 alloys on a mk1 s3

    I am changing my standard 17" avus alloys on my silver s3 to 18" and wondered if anybody had pics of the new style s3 alloys on the old model. As i want to replace them with audi replicas i had narrowed it down to these wheels or the old rs4 replicas .Also where is the best place to buy replicas with good quality and prices. Any thoughts and pics much appreciated.

    Alot of the replicas out there are very heavy compared to the standard items, and are usualy finished to a substandard level with paint that easily discolours or laquer that peels after a fairly short period of time. Plus they can often be a nightmare to have ballanced due to cheaper manufacturing processes

    For quality you really are better saving up and buying some original Audi items and then getting some high quality adapters

    I think the guy wants a pic with the twin 5 spoke alloys as fitted onto the 8P S3 as standard.

    Personally the twin spoke S3 8P wheel doesnt do much for me, dont think it will do huge amounts for the curves and shapes of your car (Plus they are a bit boring and plain)

    Let me know if you do change your mind, I run 18" Brocks but would prefer standard 17Avus for my track fun which I enjoy alot!

    Silver S3s are the best too

    I personally they will look good, just to give it the OE look instead of over the top.
