    The Reps are better than the OEMs for water resistance!

    When I worked at VW we had a few Mk5 Gits come back for that under warranty... We thought theyd learn fromt he Mk4 Anni but they didnt

    Theres a bloke on ebay who sells Reps who has a picture of some on an 8P A3 to give you and idea

    So am I !!! There have been loads of problems with them, and if the lacquer doesnt peel, sometime you get like a worming effect on them!!! Sounds like youve been lucky with yours. When I got my MKV,a couple of years ago, I swapped them for CH's straight away because of this. Great looking wheel, but lacquered wheels always suffer from this problem, and if kerbed are twice as expensiveto repair

    I love the 18" Monza's and on the two GTI's I have had, have had no problems (touch wood). IMHO it would be just wrong to put them on an S3 though.

    Yeah, TH-Lines suit rounder cars....GTI alloys belong on GTI's. No harm is seeing what they look like though and beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say

    The GTI monza II is in my opinion one of the best looking standard wheels ever, had mine replaced under warranty (twice) but I'd still spec them again if having another VW, not so sure about them on the S3 but can understand why you'd miss them.
