    Ebay is going to be your best bet! I found 1 US site with a link for replicas but I can't find it.

    Got mine from ebay but they don't come up very often. oempl.us is your best bet for gens rather than reps.

    If it's these (http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/showproduct.php/product/2339/cat/10) then they are ET52 and I'm not sure that offset will fit without rubbing. Mine are ET48 and are a squeeze! You'll also be better off with 225/35s rather than 235/35s to maintain the correct rolling diameter.

    How has the increased wheel size and lower springs affected the ride?

    I find the s-line suspension hard enough as it is. Bit crashy too. Have your mods exagerated this?

    I seem to remember paying Ł600 for x4 Goodyear F1s, fitted. Brilliant tyres - much better than the OEM Contis.

    I had 18" 20-spokes before. And they, they are a pain to keep clean, but not as bad as you might think. I just spray them with wheel cleaner, agitate it with a Halfords alloy wheel brush, then wash them with a mitt. Amd finally treat them with AutoGlym Alloy Wheel Seal which works a treat in protecting them from brake dust...

    I had the 19s fitted before the suspension and have to say the ride with the F1s was more comfortable than the ride with the Contis on 18s! But once the springs went on the ride definitely became firmer than the rather softer but decidedly jiggly std S-Line ride (which IMHO is poorly set up). I prefer the better grip and flatter cornering the car now has over the stock setup. The only noticeable difference (so I'm told) is that the ride feels quite bouncy if you're sitting in the back (which I never am!!). And the rears only rub with a very full load thanks to the right offset and right size tyres.

    Thanks Maars

    Do you have any pics with the 19"s before you lowered? Bit worried that it'll look like I'm driving the world's first A3 Allroad without lowering!

    It will look like an allroad Ron, so get coilovers and you can set up the ride to how you like and the right height!

    How are you finding the ride on the coilovers compared to the crappy standard s-line set-up?

    My car doesn't even feel like its lowered at the moment Ron! Got the car on maximum softness, its so smooth its unreal, slightly bouncey, but got the 18"s on for the winter, so wanted the ride comfy! I cannot recommend coilovers enough, those along with ARBs have completley transformed the ride! It is 10x more solid. I will probably turn them up next summer if I get 19"s again, I prefer the ride, slightly harder, not harsh like S-Line. I wish I could take you out to show you how they are worth their money!

    Cheers Nath

    Anybody in the North West thinking of getting coilovers, gimme a shout and I'll take you out in mine.

    Basically, I took them off for the winter, and thought to myself. I want to get them refurbed, a PROPER refurb from Lepsons will cost Ł400, plus new tyres (hated the profile on the 235/35/19 Falkens) so a new set of 225/35/19s in a decent tyre was another Ł600+. So its paying Ł1000+ for the same set of wheels if you know what I mean? I'm in-decisive about getting more 19"s?! Don't know what to do......

    How's your car anyway. I think the Coilovers were Ł850 + 2 hours labour. So Ł950-Ł1000 I'd expect to pay. Transform's the ride and drive though imo.
