    40mm on Bilstein dampers and H&R lowering springs I think, they were on the car when I bought it. To be honest I could do with sitting a little lower! I've got some kw adjustable coilovers on my golf but there as comfortable as sitting on some sharp rocks when you go over any slight bumps!

    If you go any lower you could risk rubbing though couldnt ya?
    Are your Kw's on your golf damping adjustable too? I have V1's on mine and i dont find them to be that bad to be honest, maybe the sidewall's on my OE wheels help absorb the bumps a little

    Both alloys are great but CH's get my vote, they look better than LM's on a S3 IMO.

    Both wheels look soooo good on the car. Like 2 of my favourites on the s3.

    MY opinion..

    LMs like olly's look incredibly tough.. give the car a really "squatty" wide stance, esp with the tyres not stretched.. an awesome look.

    CHs look smart and classy as hell.. business like.. sit nicely under the arches, and make the car look real sophisticated.

    If it was up to me, id go for the CHs just because they suit the car slightly more, but i still couldnt fault the LMs.
    Totally addicted to boost.

    I always thought LMs looked the nuts on S3s but these bbs definatly do it for me too.

    I wonder what they look like on a silver A3

    I agree, these are far nicer than the LM's. Especially in shiny silvery chrome or whatever they are. They look like 19's too?

    I think they are 19's....looks better than 18's but you will sacrifice some performance aspects.

    Can you get them wheels in a polished finish?
    Ive only seen them in standard and black.
    They would look lovely if the outer rim was polished and the middle left as normal.
    I think 18s with a lowered suspension would do it justice.

    If i remember there is someone on this forum with a broom yellow A3 with BBS CH's and lowered on the floor, i cant remember whos it is tho

    Lms are nice, but i would probably go for the CH's myself, just for personal preference really.

    How come you are after a set of them, what you doing with the current wheels??

    CH,s all the way mate, the LM dont really do it for me, in my opinion they look a bit dated, prob get shot for that lol, i think they suit a euro lookin car, but every one has there own opinion! i am considering a anthracite set of CH to go on my silver s3 but they will be replicas, cant afford the real deal with a new house on the cards, i am sure somebody had a link up not too long ago for a site for decent replicas.

    What width are the 18" wheels? and what size tyres did you go for? Also, whats the going rate for decent replicas without tyres?

    check the web site in the above post for a decent price on lm's the 8.5x18's


    id definantly go for the ch's over the lm's if your getting reps other wise be prepared to have to put some winter wheels on instead of the lm's, the polished rim laqure lifts easy once water gets behind it mine were ruind after a year with not even one kurbing

    Is there a difference in quality bewteen the different LM reps. Ive heard the Italian ones are better than the Chinese ones, for eg?
