    I get wanting to make it different, and totally agree. My A3 is totally unique and i've never seen another that looks like it... I just think there are better ways to make something unique without compromising on the actual look. That is my opinion of course and im sure others would disagree.

    There are a wide range of 'classic' wheels that always look great, but you can give them a twist to make them different to any other.

    yeah, my wheels are sooooo heavy!.

    Still, more for looks than performance. If I wanted speed I'd be running 15's and get about a second off my 0-60 times

    hmmm the more i think about it the more i'm swerving away from the nuvo's?keep imagining them on the car and like richa3turbo said i don't think they'd suit the car that well although they are an attractive design, tried ringing a few places today and haven't found any stockist that have them in stock!
    back to the drawing board.....

    I have nothing against them and on the right car would look good...just dont think the A3 is the right car.

    Never a truer word said!!

    I like your choice, remind me of the old TSW Blades that I used to use on my golfs (albeit with an extra split-spoke)

    Hope you like them when they're on
