    Another what wheel thread!

    , Once i have sorted a few bits on my car im thinking of getting some new wheels, as ive decided to keep the car now,

    I currently have just normal Avus which i like but are kerbed and have loads of baked on brake dust on the insides, i was thinking of getting these refurbed and maybe a slight different shade? Or to go with some new ones?,

    Where there any other choices of wheels that came on the S3 or was it all the 17" Avus?

    Any recomend me any nice wheels for a Ming blue S3 totally standard looking (not lowered)etc, really want a oem wheel Like an Audi wheel choice, Any pics? cheers Oski

    RSTT's look good and fairly standard. Personally I love the BBS LM's

    Ive just changed from Avus to the RSTT for the same reasons, and IMHO its what the car should have come with standard, not as an optional extra. Looks a lot better I think.

    Does anyone know how much the RSTT wheels were as an option?

    Personally I like this wheels because they are like the RSTTs but slightly different and still suit the car. In my opinion there are too many S3s with RSTTs on
