    Very nice mate, I think the alloys suit it better than the S3 model imo.

    I prefer the standard alloys which used to be on the previous s -line / black edition model, could have said i wanted different alloys before purchasing, anyway took late now, apart from the alloys it's great.

    nothing they didnt have a problem with them as they are based on standard s-line alloys they didnt put my premium up a penny either as im not some "boy racer " so they didnt see it in that way so happy days

    i'd imagine an Audi dealer would consider a straight swap with wheels from a used car, esp seeings you'd be giving them a newer set of alloys for an older car. might be worth asking the dealer you bought the car off? the worst they can say is "no".

    Nice cars. Ibis White suits the BE...

    As for the wheels, the new style wheels don't look right. I think it's because they are only 7.5J wide so you don't get the dish required for the spokes to look good. They look too flat. The previous wheels in the car above (and on my car) look better but that just my opinion!!

    Lovely looking motor mate, if you don't like the alloys, can I have first dibs on them for when you sell them for the ones you like? Nice one!
