    Any one know where i can get some Porsche replica alloys?

    Ok once i get the car back i'm changing over the alloys for a bit as the S3 are going in for a refurb and im pretty bored of them now. I'm after some decent looking 997 Turbo alloys. Any one know any companys? Also where should i go for some hub adapters from? Or be best to go Damien over @DPM? And what sort of price should i expect to pay? If any one can recommend some other alloys that be great. Not looking on getting any Audi replicas alloys.

    Many Thanks


    EDIT: Any one know where i can get genuine ones PM me please

    Thats what im worried about never had replicas so i dont want to waste money on them and to have a bad finish. Yeah the old 911 wheels are lovely.

    The second ones are the same as the ones below, 11 inch rears! The first set however would go on but you would need a stretched tyre. Also budget 250-300 for adaptors.

    As for the quality, the actual wheel is probably ok but the finish will be poor, nearly all wheels with a polished laquered finish will peel and look rubbish wihin months so you would need to budget for a refurb at some ppoint too.

    Porsche alloys

    Hi mate,

    Just a suggestion if your looking at 997 Turbo alloy's.

    Why not look at the original R8 5 spoke alloys on Your S3, far cheaper and they come in the right size without any mucking around and have a simillar pattern. 5 twin spoke design instead of the Turbo's 3 spoke design.

    Check them out on the TTshop's web site I think you may like them a lot, It is what I was going to do next to my S3 but bought the Porsche instead.

    Gaz
    Black 996 C4S
    B6 S4

    Black S3 Revo 2+ sold
    All options + Miltek TBE, Revo 2+, HPFP, RNS E, Bose, Alpine Ipod interface, TTRS Brakes

    For sale unfitted Forge catch can kit, open to offers?
    also standard S3 factory exhaust?

    Thanks for that Lee. Sounds like from your experience may be a waste of time.

    Hi Gaz,

    Thanks for your input. Not really the biggest fan of those R8 5 Spoke alloys. Think they look ugly on A3/S3. only really suit the R8 and i dont even think they look that good on them. The R8 V10 alloys are not too bad. But wouldnt put them on my car. Nice choice of car mind if you ever go aftermarket with your alloys keep my in mind

    Cheers

    Ashley

    Ash, not sure if you made any progress on getting some wheels but I was up in Yorkshire and made a visit to specialists Kahn Wheels who do Porker Replicas. Might be worth giving them a call, ask to speak to Chris George. Lots of other good stuff..

    I was fortunate enough to be invited upstairs to see some of their cars. Pics aren't great but thought I would post anyhow.

    Cheers, KKP
