    Opinions wanted on these wheels

    Hey everyone I'm planning on getting one of these alloy choices on my Sprint blue S3 when I get back from holiday in March and just wondered what you guys/girls would go for.

    Both are great and a super colour for not showing the brake dust.

    I'd go for BBS CH-R but out of the 2 options you said I prefer the Turini.

    Everyone has a opinion and that's fair but most people on here have bbs wheels on their audi's but they must not be for you.

    BBS CK's otherwise.

    I'd give you CH's but not VZ's. I LOVE turini's!! had them on my STi.
    Silver ones look better on the blue though IMHO.

    There's too much metal in the centre of those BBSs, the same reason CH and CK look so much better in 19"+. Turinis suit that colour/finish better too, they get my vote.

    So half and half now for each hmm speed lines are the ones I wanted but then have always liked the bbs vz since I saw them on a golf edition 30 so have put a poll in and will go with which ever gets the highest number of votes.

    The reason I am not keen on the bbs whether it be vz or ch is that with their design they seem to look small in 18 as the turinis don't.
    Only my opinion though as I know how popular the bbs are.

    Turinis just remind me of the Renault Clio 172/182. Not for me.

    BBS but the CK's the VZ's look cheap imo. The CK's are only £110 more but look a lot better :D

    BBS's have been done to death, I don't dislike them at all, but I've just seen so many of them that they don't press the right buttons for me. In the world of Audi car modifications there seem to be some default choices that people feel the need to make to feel a defacto signed up member. If they don't have coilovers, BBS's and a Milltek they feel like they've sold themselves short. To me they're no longer the thinking mans choice (like Superdry and Hollister on the high street), they've become an automatic default. On the grounds of this alone, I will vote for the Speedline's of the two, but I love S3 Jackos wheels above, look stunning (but god I wouldn't want to clean the outer edge spoke divots after a long winter!!!).
