    Buy the alloys, tyres and adaptors haha

    Go DPM for adaptors and you will have to get 4 fronts as genuine rear 997 alloys wont fit.
    Or get reps

    as above, you'll need 4 front alloys, or alloys from a Cayman or Boxster in that style. you'll be looking for a very VERY long time, and it's not worth the extra expense of going new

    indeed, the smallest adaptors you can get are 15mm so you would still be looking at plenty of poke due the low offset. If you want porsche look then get reps, easy! Real ones only work on the golf mk4 platform as the offsets work out nearly perfect with adaptors.

    I agree, BBS CH's in black are a good choice. However I must admit the blakc 19" sport alloys on my CS with the low profile tyres look amazing. Rears are 265/35/19

    haha now you know why a lot of people go for rep BBS rather then genuine!!
    if you think CH's are expensive, have a look what a set of BBS LMs cost!!

    haha dont worry does the same to me... why im still running stock wheels lol
    think 8.5j is fine, just means you will have a bit more stretch on the rubber, (OEM BBS splits are 8.5j and plenty people running them on A/S3's)
    the et im not sure, worst case you can always get a set of 5mm or more spacers so they fill the arches nicely

    generally no, but the issues of wheel et seems to be one that stumps a lot of people, with what works on a given car, maximum and minimum and how the different numbers relates to how they sit in the wheel arch

    i understood all that, until someone told me that 9J wheels will fit with ET35, and then showed me photos proving it - i thought ET44 was your limit.

    if the ET relates to how off centre the wheel is where it mounts to the hub then surely dropping the ET and then making the wheel wider makes it stick out of the arches MORE, not less?
