    Yep, Spin140 has them on his car. They do look nice.

    Hope you don't mind Martin!!



    Funnily enough I think they're up for sale as he's just got some Audi rotors.

    great! thanks for the photo! What do you think about fitting them to a black 8p1? Are they a straight swap too? Cheers!

    I think they'd look really good. Wasn't sure at first, but the more I see them the more I like them.

    8P1 is all same hub space etc. as 8P3 so would be a straight transfer over.

    Would you swap them for a set if s3 wheels with 2dunlop sports only covered 800miles and 2 with michelins with 4mm tread left? If not don't worry worth a ask

    Always worth asking

    I have 2 sets of S3 alloys already so on this occasion have to decline.

    Those Golf wheels look really good... wonder if they'd suit a 3-dr as well. And they come in 19" too, right?

    You can't get oem in 19" but you would be able to get some reps.

    They are very flattering wheels they always look 'big' on the car I think its the combination of polishe face and dark inside area.

    MONZA II should have always been original fit on the S3.
    Look cool, and much better than the AUDI OEMS IMO.
    Rotors are the best wheels for the S3 so far though.
