    i`m from manchester and theres a few shops that do replica`s local to me for 18" for 399 without tyres and they give 1 year warranty but the only thing is ive never bought non genuine stuff before so am really hesitant,not sure read a few other forums that they have been fine so i might just take the plunge

    They do ship to the UK, email them...I did and was pleasantly surprised. I just haven't got that spare 1k to buy them yet with 2 kids and a misunderstanding fiancee.

    Very few of the reps I have seen have the same finish as the OEM ones, can spot most of the reps straight off.

    I have replica Rotors sprayed in genuine audi paint to match genuine wheels in 20's and mine are mint, would never know you actualy had 20" wheels on there it drives so good. Only down side is have to watch out for pot holes with the stretched tyres

    I had reps before and snapped 2 of them... Wouldn't touch reps again... I'd rather save my pennies, be patient and wait for the right wheels!!

    Hmm might just spray mine for now in that case then hopefully the same satin dark grey as the rotor if you know if thats possible? Might look nice with some red callipers too...
    Not too keen on the chunkiness of the sport rims i dont think.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1390771450.174701.jpg

    Really wanted it to look something like this but with my own touches lol-

    What is that on that... An ABT kit?

    Personally i'm not a fan, not a fan of aftermarket at all.... I'm more a custom OEM guy if thats makes sense! Style the car with all the best parts of the OEM world... Its not cheap but personally its more about getting these parts patiently cheaper than the norm thats part of the thrill for me..

    There are some decent 2nd hand OEM wheels kicking about for the cost of new reps.. In my opinion, just bide your time and have a look 1st

    Look into plastidipping if you want a Black grill... Its a very cheap alternative if your on a budget... Cant remember exactly about this, but also look into Seat Leon splitter... Its a more subtle looking splitter than that and might look a bit nicer

    Considering a black grill from here- http://www.carparts-tuning.co.uk/Spo...tuning-10.html
    Just looked at Seat Leon splitter and it is quite nice, just makes it look a bit sportier than standard. Good call.

    Yeah it should do buddy... Dont exactly know how well it'll fit... Might need a small trim or glueing because its aftermarket... Some guys have had no issues... Other guys have had to trim bits... Depends on what 1 you go for.. I've not fit any aftermarket grills like this, so couldnt tell you by experience

    Theres some on ebay that show them fitted to A3's, might get that after my insurance renewal and have a bit of money to play with
    Keep changing mind about the grill, need to research plastidip and how well it lasts in weather and the elements lol

    I had plastidip on my car for months... Was ok if applied correctly.. Best applying plastidip in warmer weather or inside if possibe..

    You could always go down the route of wrapping the chrome.. Thats what I did, just incase I ever wanna return the car to Standard when selling etc... Yeah it'll prob fit tho with no worries, if anything a slight trim, but easily doable with a stanley knife...

    Just watch your fingers tho
