    The lower the offset, the more the wheel will sit out the arch, the higher the offset the higher it'll sit in the arch

    Hi! Sorry for jumping in! I assume with the above the newer a3's have a4 pcd of 5x112? Ie not like days if old? I'm thinking to get a 2006 AUDI A3 2.0 TDi Quattro S line, would certainly be handy to share wheels with my B5 S4(5x112)
    can anyone confirm the above?

    indeed! However A3's need Et45+ so worth checking the ET as some may stick out too far on an A3. A4 wheels can vary between ET38 and ET48 so some are more suitable than others.

    Cheers, particularly liking some OEM 18 S4's at the moment, I know a lad who has some on an 8L S3 with adaptors. they are ET48 so would look a treat but i'm thinking a grey colour for the refurb, but then I think fat 5's then speedlines, oh its all a mess in my head!

    Need to dump the reps for the spring thats fo sho
