    not to my liking unfortunatley dude, although kudos for being different and not just sticking a set of rs4 rims on and lowering it lol

    am guessing you had the seats retrimmed, looks like an excellant job!!

    also, in the last picture, whats that sorta hanging down to the left of your headlight switch?

    edit: second to last picture, do'h

    Big pimpin.....snoop doggy dog would be proud !! Not feeling the look of the rims at a glance i thought they had diamonds encrusted in them,( time to get me checked a thinks) good choice on the re-trim dude, v nice indeed but maybe a step to far doing the dash it's a strong colour you could over kill it... IMO though totally.

    christ they must have set you back a pretty penny, hope you dont live in/near a rough area else they'll be gone

    to be fair the more i look at them the more they grow on me, am appreciating the dub look you've gone for, coilovers are a good choice so you can get the car to sit on the rims just perfect

    Tell us more about the specs, what size tyres did you go for in the end? Fronts look under rubbered/stretched, was that a look you was going for? What offsets are the wheels originally, and are the 20mm spacers actually spacers or hub adaptors??

    I need some inspiration.

    Wrong colour interior for the colour of your car for a start matey. The wheels used to belong to a S3 show car didn't it or did you buy them brand new? Not sure if you're trying to make it look like the guys car but you may want to take a different approach to get there in regards to colour schemes.

    now ya ve put me on the spot mate, i ll have to double check, think im puttin the 20mm spacers on the front and 10mm on the back, year rubber on the front does look thin but anymore would look to fat

    Interior looks good. Although i think if you get the dash and wheel done, then it may look to much. Maybe just the dash? Are you going to trim the door trims?

    Just seen this and to be honest I think the wheels are repulsive, Interior trim job not a colour I would have chosen, but it could be worse, but it's your car and thats what matters most if you like it its good. Personally I always regard Audi's as a classy brand and dont think the wheels do the car any favours at all, subtle yet stylish and individual always better than bling bling in your face, but as I say its your car and if you like it then thats a result.

    id ignore peoples negative coments mate looks superb loads of people did'nt like mine when i posted pics or had there opinion on what i should have done but its your car/mine and as long as your/me are happy thats all that matters,
    also when looking at pics its easy to just look at one area of the car such as the wheels but when your there in person you tend to look at the car differently more as a whole and i think it would look the nuts tbh.. many people prefer mine once they actually get to see the car

    The origional poster ASKED for comments so should expect to get both positive and negative comments, as I and many have said it's his car and if he likes it then thats great but having a moan because some of us dont happen to like it kinda makes the origional posters request for comments a bit pointless if you are going to suggest he ignore them. Just my opinon.

    fair point, im just giving the op support as posting on the forum something different does'nt always give positive feed back and prehaps it be nice if people could view it more as a whole car not pin point at the wheels, havent seen any comments about the smoothed front and rear bumpers or the masking tape on the n/s/f side repeater lol

    While I don't like whats been done I really appreciate the hard work and effort that's clearly gone into the car. Well done for being different, something like doing this takes a lot of money and bottle, if it goes wrong you are stuck with it or have to spend more to change it.

    If we all wore RSTT's on the S3 then the world would be a boring place. I for one LOVE Kev's car and what he's done. I do like your leather and had a similar thought myself of doing it to mine. I would imagine it looks more Tanned leather than orange in person?

    how much did the wheels cost?

    i think the car looks pretty cool. Big respect for braving it with them wheels. Id be thinking someone would go all menace to society on me at the traffic lights.
