    Almost ordered a set of these after checking out a set earlier today...



    Team Dynamics Equinox in 18s but Matt Black rather than gloss

    Ł799 inc tyres but they on back order cuz they didnt have any in stock

    Was i about to make a mistake??

    18" @ Ł599 for the reps inc 'performance' tyres... whatever those are.

    I'd speculate the originals would be around Ł1200+ inc tyres on an 18... They're definitely the way forward with your colour though mate!

    Hi mate,

    there are definitely some exceptional bbs ch reps in black.... in fact bbs had to send out a note to suppliers as the black ch's with red stripe were being passed off as originals as they were that good.... now happen upon a pair of those ones and your in the game. As they have been exposed now, I am sure they will be priced correctly.

    The way to distinguish between them is the size of the center cap that has the 'BBS' logo on it... can't remember the correct size, but if you do a google search you'll find the info.

    I was going to get some and have them resprayed in Lava grey, keeping the red pin stripe, still may or the New RS6 alloys.

    Good luck whatever ya go with, be sure to post some pics up.

    Thanks

    Luckily i got it with the car when i got it

    Its part of the Votex kit from audi, (also got the sideskirts, rear diffuser and rear spoiler)

    audi sell the front splitter for Ł245 on their site...

    http://accessories.audi.co.uk/access...ccessoryId=488

    thats the price for unpainted

    im sure you can find it cheaper on the bay

    just make sure you get it properly colour matched... seen it on a few cars where it looks shyte

    As soon as i clipped in the new grille i thought about the rings.... :/

    i might just paint the rings on my old one and swap them when i get a chance

    atleast that way i wont have to drive around lookin as if ive been robbed while the rings dry out

    i still havent decided on rims... ive been thinkin of bbs ch's and as beautiful as they are i think i might get something different as ive seen too many of them about on a3/s3s (although none with the red stripe)

    This pic annoys me because heres both styles




    i still quite like the look of the chrome surround on the rims... maybe i can justify them as audi rings

    as for pics of my car... ill try to get a couple shots of it from all angles when im back from work

    I hear you on the CH's. Although there's a good reason for that, obviously... They are the sh*t! Although I also hear ya about being individual, I think that's where you might be ok with the ch's as there are very few with the red stripe ( I have seen anyway). Just look how sweet they look on the M3! Spray your calipers red and BAM! Sweet....

    I'll have a look around at some other rims 4 you, fourtitude forums is a good place to look as there are many res a3's on there.

    Hmmm, they look ok, but I am not sure either.... maybe in all black they would look better or maybe it's just the photoshop??

    I'm quite fond of these right now... and think they would look great in black!

    i think its just the red stripe which makes them look a little tacky

    what are those rims you posted pics of?

    they look cool

    That is seriously hot!, have they left the S3 badge on though with s line side badges?.....Looks like the grill has been changed between both pictures?.
