    Opinions on these Merc wheels...

    Yo,

    Just wanted to know what people's thoughts were on these wheels, would they sit nicely on an A3? They suit the Vdub well...

    Would it be easy to replace the Mercedes logo?

    One thing for sure, these are missions to get a hold off though...I can't find them anywhere!

    Cheers,
    P.

    Yeah, I'm not liking the Merc badge either...they come off an SL 2002-2005, but even finding an SL with these rims is bloody difficult!!

    I reckon they'll look better on A3/S3 (in comparison to the mkIV)...

    That car has good stance. As for the wheels, I'm not sure. Do I like them just because they are rare??? Maybe.

    They are a little to spikey, which always makes me think of '90s saxos and the like.

    I think that car would do better with another choice of wheels personally.

    HTC - now that you've said Saxo, I know what you mean...

    SDO - yep, I agree, on Mercs they look ok, nothing special...
