    I would recommend to get 19" RS4 reps instead.

    I contacted Audi UK in an attempt to spec these wheels on my S3 as I had seen them on Audi germany, was told it was not possible. Silly really as all they needed to do was pick up four different boxes.

    That does look sweet!
    How good are the reps - I guess my concern is weight and quality finish.
    Anyone had any experiences???

    .... With the black styling pack (black front grill). First one I've seen. Looks good on a black car.

    Soooo does any one have further details on this car?
    19" alloys look great, but are they genuine OEM's or rep's?
    Looks like it has spacers?? Any one know?
    And is that standard ride height??

    Anyone able to shed any lights???

    The car has got a springs fitted. H&R IIRC.
    The wheels are replicas and you can find details of them on this rather german website:
    http://www.sportwheels.de/html/felge...20RS4%20Design

    Looking at the specs of them, I would say yes its got spacers fitted.

    is it just me, or have AUDI gone out of their way to bin the 8P rear cluster shape, and try and reproduce the 8L cluster shape?

    I sat looking at a phantom black 8P S3 in my dealer last week for about an hour while my car was in. Sure it was mocking me......
