    A3 Sport on 18's...

    I'm interested in seeing what a three door Sport with standard Sport suspension would look like on 18" alloys.

    I've got the possibility of buying some RS6's but don't want the car to look like a moon buggy.

    No plans to lower for now either.

    Anyone got any photos??

    Re: A3 Sport on 18's...

    This is something I was wondering for my car too. I want some 18s just to make the car look a bit slicker, but really don't want the hassle of lowering at mo.

    I don't think it looks bad. It's a bit hard to tell exactly from that angle though. Do you have a side on shot??

    What's yours?? A Sport too??
    The sport alloys are really beginning to do my head in now. They look very dated.

    EXACTLY what I was looking for. You're a star!

    Defo looks better after the drop, but to be honest it doesn't look as high as I thought it would on standard sport springs.

    And un-lowered, definitely still looks better on 18" RS6s than on 17" Sport alloys.

    No Worries, glad it helped!

    The old style Sport 17's are really starting to look dated now.

    Good luck.

    Hows the laquer holding up on those wheels? Seen a set today on an A4 and the winter salt had destroyed them.

    Wheels are fine. I was washing car nearly every week and dropping the turtle wax solution on them so stayed clean.
    I had taken the wheels off when most of the snow hit so didnt get much grit on them. Ive been rolling on the 17s since
    I plan to put the reps back on, but will lower first.

    Yeah mines a sport too, and currently have the standard 17s. Yes they look dated etc, but I just cant make my mind up on alloys, and then when I think I do, I then start the debate of whether i should lower, I dont ever like doing half a job, so I know, if i end up doing it, I will ideally want 19s, then I will want to get KW coillies at the same time.

    Then I will get nagged at by the GF for wasting yet more of my money on 'just a car'!

    That one's a bit low for my liking I think. With bigger wheels it'd look very nice though, IMO.
