    The wheels you have are bbs ch. you might be better selling your wheels and just buying the s3 wheels as you would probably get more for the bbs.

    They're actually Pescara's, very similar to BBS CH's but without the 'motorsport' lettering, slightly less concave and different width/offset.

    i would but i wouldnt have any wheels to put on the car, and i need to use it for work.
    i know the bbs are worth alot more than the alloys i want but for convinience i would want a straight swap, probs be loosing money but not bothered tbh. thanks man

    They are better than the rs4 ones you want to swap for.

    Worth far more, and look better of course.

    They are one of audi's optional extra alloys though

    i suppose they would look nice if i got them sprayed or powder coated anthracite colour. (are there any pics out there of this ?)
    just love the look of the rs4 alloys in grey, look awesome imo

    they sounds like good exspensive alloys ive just did some research on pescara alloys on gogole. they seem to go for £700+ if in decent condition. if anyone wants these alloys let me know. id do a swap for some rs4 alloys and cash my way, i guarantee you get them for a good deal. thanks for all the help people appreciate it

    Same as the ED30 wheels but the Golf ones are slightly darker rather than silver.
