    Cant make my mind up if the new style RS4 wheels suit the 8L S3 or not, i like the black backs with the silver face and they defo do a goood job of showing off the brakes mate. Where did you get the LED rear light from?

    I'm not a fan on these wheels personally, not on an 8L anyways.

    True, if we all liked the same thing it would be very boring, if im honest i would have had the bbs lms, but cant justify the price....these were cheap and new so if they last a year or so im happy..

    could not agree more. i like pretty things, and things that are not O/E, i like things that hiss pop and bang, if that makes me a chav on here then.... im a chav!! I like to call it individuality tbh! What size were ya old rims.... you still got em?

    i hardly use this forum anymore tbh due to the way people are so set in there ways and not open to peoples new ideas unless your doing a turbo conversion etc...
    i was dissapointed with the rims tbh was expecting to see something different for a change. sorry if my opinion is'nt positive but its your car and as long as you like it (for op), i like it just similar to loads on here.
    i get loads of mixed response to my car when post pics but im not into oem cars if i were i would'nt use a car forum id just clean it to keep it nice

    It's all about personal opinion though isn't it? If you are prepared to post a pic up of you car and ask for an opinion, then you should also be ready to be flamed if people don't like what they see.

    Not having a go at you mind Kev, I like what you have done to your S3, but if others don't, just ignore them, no need to avoid a forum from a bit of negativity, it should all be friendly banta.

    Looks nice. Certainly gives the car more of an "edge" compared the standard rims.

    not avoiding it from negative coments (i like them means people wont copy me) i come on here nearly every day just post less as there always seems to be similar threads which i have little intrest, be nice for people to post up little readers ride threads etc.. show of there new style etc not all susspension and engine stuff
    the forum in general is great just my mind set has changed a little since being on here

    but if you do things different your a chav. thats the asn way. if your not a chav your stupid, and if your not stupid its just a big NO NO!! i love Euro look cars, dont see many 8ls. I would love to see your motor. i wish i could afford some big 4" dished 19" alloys. i would also like to show the results of my chavvy induction that i designed but dont no how! lol

    I love this forum, its fun, you laugh at the serious dudes that think you actually give a fk, play to the ones that think there winding you up, and pi$$ ya pants at people kissing the mods ar$es in hope that they will someday be a god like figure of a moderator! (no offence meant of corse) Oh i forgot the main one... the contridictive rulings..... baaaahaha!! tho shall not offend anyone or have there own opinion (unless your a moderator).

    I have made some true pals out of this forum but ya gotta laugh aint ya..... NOT O/E!!!! wheres the rope!!! lolol

    awesome stuff they look great, but then again i would say that because i have the exact same rims, polished with black inserts defiantly looks better than the standard rs4's silver.

    also there must be a reason why rs4 style is common, something is only popular if its good.

    also i have LED tailights just not the same ones you do.
