    ** Pic Request **

    Hey guys im looking for a bit of advice and help... I know replica wheels are not to everyones taste but BBS do not do the LM wheel in the fitment for the A3 as far as im aware...

    I Really Like the BBS LM wheel and have seen the following pictures which make me want the BBS LM style wheel from ebay... anyone got any other pictures appart from the following?



    not sure if these are bbs LM reps but it looks lush...


    also this would look better if lowered...


    While im asking for help... do you guys think that the 18's will look too small?

    Thanks
    Craig

    there is an american company called Volks (i think) that do a version of the LM's, proper split rim jobbies but they are like BBS, you pay top dollar for them, but the quality is meant to be top

    Yeah I'm not gonna pay top money for them.. The reps are alot cheaper but just need to know the 19's will fit the A3 nicely... The higher the ET number on the offset the further out or in they are??? Can anyone tell me?

    Think I'll have to order the coilovers at the same time to not have the horrible arch gaps!

    performance is important and in my opinion the S3 looks good anyway so at least you dont have to rush out and buy wheels lol

    very true, the S3 is a very good base car to start with looks wise, but thats the problem, there is very little you can do to it to make it look better without spending big money

    Nobody wants to see 'spinners' N8... They are so 2001... Haha only joking...

    Would ET42 on 19's fit on the A3 with no problems? The LM reps in 19 are ET42 I think...

    So I hear that the sportback S3 rubs easier than the 3-door? What are the limits on wheel size for sportbacks N8? I am on stock suspension now, but I may add H&R springs lateron
