    I'd go CH - I've heard that the MTM alloys are very heavy!

    I'd go CH those new BBS rims look like the old CH style as fitted to the anni mkIV golf.

    For best prices when I looked Philip of PW motorsport (advertises on here) came up trumps.

    The MTM's (made by BBS for MTM) have started looking a little old in my opinion. Nice looking wheels though. By all accounts they're very heavy and due to the design they are prone to buckling.
    Go for the CH's, can't go wrong really can you.

    Those BBS RE look good though!

    CHs dont seem to have dated at all, probably never will.

    Like the old BBS `Crosswire` design and AZEV `A` which still look cool.

    Black edition does look really good, didn't notice that in your original post to be honest, 19" too!

    Looking forward to seeing them on an S3, oh and get it lowered too!!!

    19" BBS CH Black will look amazing on your car.I saw them on a Golf GTI a few weeks ago.

    Just get the right "et" on them. They do them in 8x19 et50

    I came to a deal with another member on here, he wanted the black grille with the chrome from the OEM grille and I was after the anthracite grille with the black parts from the optics grille..

    What are you after?

    Ah ok cool, I think your best bet is Audi unless you are ok to wait for one to come up, alternatively buy an OEM grille and go a bit custom with it..

    Humm...

    Having already had the BBS CH on my old car... i was hoping to go for MTM's are they really that weak?

    the other options i had were the 19 a6 20 spoke wheels and the sportec's but not sure about them on a met black sportback
