    Now I'm in 2 minds! Car came with the top ones but thought the standard ones suited it better, now i'm thinking the top ones are rarer and therefore better....

    That was one of the reasons for them to go because of the cleaning.

    The second set look better as they look bigger but the top one's are the best OEM wheel for an A3 by miles IMO. I have them in 19's Lower your car slightly and the top set will look way better I reckon

    Oh.... Nice car btw mate
