    New Wheels for my A3.....

    Thinking of these for my A3.....here is the car.......






    and these are the wheels I am considering......

    Still keeping 18" although going for 8x18" I reckon.......







    What do you reckon?

    Silver ones are nice too but I fancy having the matt black with the polished rim.....
    here are the silver ones......

    get 19's, IMO 18's look ok, but 19's have the wow factor more so.

    I was tempted mate....but I dont want to stray too far from standard.....I do a lot of miles and want to keep the same level of comfort I have at the moment....the 19s will be noiser and give a harsher ride........although they would look the ********! :o)

    Thanks mate, but I am committed to replacing the wheels now! My car is going in Fast Car as a 'staff project' therefore will have subtle changes made to it each month for an article in the mag. I've already had tyres from Continental so must find wheels to commence with the feature!

    I'm going to have a look on your website....you got any photos of your A3 on here anywhere?

    Not sure yet mate, I'm in discussions but dont think they are too expensive from what I gather...think they are around 750 for a package with wheels, in size 18".

    You spotted the potential too! Well done! I have went through the same dilema....saw the gray ones at Autosport and have been trying to decide between those and matt black too!! lol. In the end, I reckoned the car looks black most of the time whereas I think the grey ones will be a touch too light....but I may be wrong. It was the fact they are matt black that convinced me....think that will be a cool finish.

    Do you have any decent photos of your car with the new lights etc? Sounds nice!
