    Those are NOT fat 5 style, they're C5 RS6 style. Would be a good price for genuine ones, but hardly bargain of the century for reps.

    FranA3 has/had genuine ones on his car, black with red flake (legit OEM+). What colour is your car? There should be a few pics of A3s with them on in the 'Pics' and 'Rimz' sticky threads.

    Finish looks decent but you've also got to take into account the price of tyres as well. They may not seem much money but once you've bought 4 tyres at over £100 a corner and had them fitted, it adds up.

    I bought a set just like that in silver with nearly new tyres for £250!
    Although they are a little curbed..

    these are less than £50 a corner.. but I imagine they will be terrible.
