    ok, wheels are 18x7.5 not sure on ET....

    part number is easily aquired by calling Audi!

    to upload a pic, forst upload the pic to a image hosting site, then get the direct link and use the "insert image" button and directly past the URL in there...

    hope that helps.

    Your best bet to get these wheels is to look for a set 2nd hand. They will be a fortune from Audi... I let my set go for a fuel pump and couple other goodies.. but you can pick a set up from about 600 whereas Audi will likey be double that, without tyres!

    mate your buying 2nd hand wheels, 9/10 times they will have a damaged wheel/wheels or in need of refurb... thats why they are 600 for four wheels and not like 1500

    Totally agree with you ,but saying they have been refurbed when you can see they have just been sprayed with an aerosol is taking the p*ss.
    I dont mid getting some with minor damage, i can live with that.

    yeh totally! the spray tin thing does take the P but if you find a resonable cond set that need a refurb for that kind of money its well worth it... wack em on, enjoy for a bit not having to worry about kerbing etc & when your finances allow get them refurbed in any colour/finish YOU want...

    If you are still looking, I have a set of these S3 alloys for sale in excellent condition, only one very slight kerb mark (which I didn't notice until the tyre was removed). I saw your thread when you posted it originally, but at the time I was holding them for a member on here who can no longer buy them. Please see my classified ad for more details and pics. 570.00 GBP delivered in the UK.
