    They are a factory option but I cany say Ive ever seen an S3 with them fitted.




    Cheers

    You mean the ones in the pic?!

    I really like these wheels on the A3, they seem to be more popular on S lines than S3's, I reckon thats because the S3 has model specific wheels anyway so most stick with them.

    I've seen one Sprint Blue S3 with them on, its on ebay now and again guy been trying to sell it for a few months. I think it looks good and better than the standard S3 alloys. A bit different aswell you dont really see them on the S3. Will pop on and see if its there for you now paul.

    Edit: Not there sory will keep an eye out

    I've got these badboys in 19's on my A4. A friend has the 18's on their 8P S3 and they don't look amazing I have to say. It's 19" or nothing with these alloys.

    Thanks guys, maybe there is a good reason why theres not many S3s around with these rims fitted?

    Not on a Sprint Blue but a couple more shots...

    I'm assuming it's an A3 with an S3 grill because of the S-Line badge but it does the job:



    Also:
    8P2 S3

    Not on an S3 - or even an A3 for that matter - but these wheels are bloody fantastic. I drove to Newcastle in a van to pick them up:

    Look great on that A4.

    Not so sure on the A3...
    I could only really be sure if I saw them a a Sprint S3 in the flesh.

    Maybe I will stick with the std fit S3 rims and treat them to a refurb in the spring.
    And maybe some springs to tighten things up.....Mmmmm.

    cheers guys
