    OEM S3 wheels for me. Search Ebay should get a set for around 500 with continental tyres, steer clear of the copies all the reviews I read said they were sh**te and I'm happy I waited for the originals to turn up. Happy hunting.

    Bit of a strange question - 600 OEM wheels vs 1.2k~ aftermarket ones?

    It's all down to personal preference.... I think one of the things you have to think about is what else you'll be doing to the car.

    I think the BBS will look out of place if the car isn't lowered too, but the OEM S3 alloys would look smart at standard ride height.

    Yeah i agree with you the car will be lowered when or if i get these type of alloys either 17 or 18's (most probably 18's) they costing 1,550! thats 18's not sure about the 17's

    As for the OEM S3 alloys they are quite nice and agree about the height aswell
    thanks for that DPM and S3IZZO
