    Just got my new (new to me) 54 plate audi a3 1.6fsi

    Loving it so far but I have noticed the tyres are different sizes on the back compared to the front ones ?

    Bit odd on a 1.6 FSI - maybe trying to emulate the new RS3 LOL. From a legal point of view/MOT its ok, as long as the tyres on the same axles are the same.
