    20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    When I first went to look at an A3 the dealer had a sportback with these on and I thought they looked great, now I have come to place my order I'm struggling to visualize them on the car!

    Does any one have any Piccys of these alloys on a A3 or any other car come to that?

    Thanks

    I think in that pic they look like 16" - really need to find a car with them on as I don't know if I have made the right choice now...

    I think the RS6 wheels set all the Audi's off so much better, except for the BBS CH's of course. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    And Steph V6 (no longer on the forum) had them too: the fasteners on his started rusting within months, and he had problems getting it fixed under warranty !!

    Re: 20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    Yes, they're not the same. Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

    Still, they're Audi wheels, made by BBS, and they had an issue with rusting fasteners.

    Re: 20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    Well, ask yourself this: how often do you wash your car? Will you have the time to take extra care of the wheels? If so, and you're set on multi-piece wheels then go for it!

    However, if you're half as lazy as I am, then stay away.

    Good luck!

    Re: 20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    I have decided to go for a roof spoiler and multi function steer wheel instead... hope I don't regret it!

    Re: 20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    Good call, spoiler and mf wheel will be good. I don't like those 20 spoke wheels the standard s line look superb and will be really easy to keep clean.

    Re: 20 Spoke - 2 piece alloy wheels

    I've got the M\F wheel on my Sportback and would definitley have it again.

    So much easier with the CD\Radio. Change tracks on the CD, fast fwd a track, adjust the volume, change the radio station - all without removing your hands from the wheel! Also has what looks ike some phone buttons but I don't use them.

    I just wish you could adjust the climate from the wheel - all those pesky little buttons that look the same!
