    Alloys for S3

    My S3 turns up mid April, and Ive been trying to get some discounted BBS CH alloy wheels, but all sources seemed to have dried up on these, well at a decent price anyway. For around the same money I am thinking of these - MTM 19" Titanium - What do you think - bare in mind my car is white with black optics and privacy and wont be lowered;





    Cheers

    IMHO, they look dull to me...I like the pic of them undressedm, but on car not so. Clearly I know they are titanium in asthetics... and darker looking wheel looks like it should be more on a raz boy car?

    Wrong wheels, but the general idea is here - I think white is the only colour that you can pull black/anthracite wheels off successfully

    I have a valetter that works for me, so no cleaning problems. Its just something Ive always wanted to do a white car with black wheels- maybe ill regret it when I come to sell it in 8 months or so, but only time will tell!!!

    And buying the one at Bramleys - No way, wrong colour and Ive got a hefty discount off mine, over 2000, so no point buying used, and I also have a specific spec

    Me neither - they look so much better nice and shiny.

    To me the black/grey thing always looks like 'winter wheels' which misses the point when these wheels featured are @ 1600 a set.

    Each to their own of course..plus if you keep the standards you can put them back on come PX time so no harm done.

    I dont understand, why there's virtually no mention of brands like OZ, volk racing, enkei?

    Other wheels I would consider include enkei RPF1, oz ultraleggera, volk ce28, or te37.





    mmMMMmmm.....ce28 with alcons.

    These wheels might suit a Datsun or a Toyota, an Audi really needs a European wheel. I`m not trying to be controversial here, but the Jap wheels only really suit Jap cars IMHO.

    To be totally honest, I only rate Audi OEM wheels on modern Audis..........

    They are not too dissimilar looks wise, however I prefer the MTM's, and arent the Sportec's quite heavy compared - so Ive read somewhere before. What price are they?

    On a small side note, I actually saw a white S3 in the flesh yesterday, which is my first, at Worthing Audi - Oh my god, it just looks stunning, cant wait to get it now

    White S3s are stunning Oli, good choice! I think the sportec is a nice looking wheel than the MTM, imo.
