    Had a morning in an S3 S Tronic in Panther Black.. awesome to drive and the S Tronic really suits the car.Panther, well first time we had seen one in the flesh and yes I'm sure it shines and sparkles with flashbulbs and strong sunlight but in the grey skies yesterday it looked very flat and less shiny than our current Phantom car. In fact we questioned the sales guy as to if it really was Panther.. it was.Anyway our S3 is now locked and we are sticking with Manual and Phantom Black..... getting impatient now but only a couple of months or so to go!!

    No folks I am quite happy with my spec, particularly seeing the Panther in dull light.. As for S Tronic... maybe next time, it is very suited to the car but on balance prefer Gears.As for the ASDA extractor fans, had OEM 19in been available I would probably have had them. I'm told the Saloon 19in will not fit the SB, can't think why?

    Lol, so let's get this right.You've read and posted on the Panther Schwarz thread that you like Phantom and consider Panther dull.You concede that STronic is your preference but you've bought manual.You've bought 18" wheels but prefer 19".All in all, you're in a great place

    And the 19" saloon alloy will run 225/35/19 tyres giving the same effective rolling radius as the 225/40/18'so no reason at all that they will not fit !

    Cool

    Have a nice day Mr Rock ;-)I thought this thread was for comments on Panther primarily and a few asides as happen from time to time.. for example when we mention Politicians we can't help thinking about ar5eholes.. get it ? On the wheels I understand the maths BUT the wheel itself is a different size and someone posted that the Saloon 19in wheel will not be a proper fit on SB.. don't know any more than that mate.

    so they've redesigned the hub and the PCD of the bolting pattern just for one car out of the whole range ? don't be daft, i think you're talking noinsense. regarding your other comments, I think the expresion is " doth the lady do protest too much"..........

    It might be down to the size of the discs and the offset as I am sure that the S3 has bigger discs - looks like there will be enough room though. There is the narrower wheel arches on the SB as well...

    Just went on the german audi site, looks like they are offering a 19" version of the V style wheels they do on the RS range
    that would be great on the SB .....

    The width is still 225 and the rolling radius is equitable therefore no issue ffs...... Is there something wrong out there ? Lol..... Unreal,...On thread here's a panther black sq5. Heavy, not dynamic but bloody lovely colour....

    No reason. Same PCD same rolling diameter, same width. 19" will fit. Johnny already has them fitted.

    Doubt they are the same width, 19s are showing as 8" and typically VAG 18s are 7.5". And potential offset might be different too. That said, fitted with 225 tyres instead of the 235s supplied on the saloon I'm sure they would be fine as long as it wasn't decked on coilovers.

    Looking at the way the S3 3 door and sportback sits you can easily get 19" or even 20"( if you're mad) on there.

    They sit well in the arch and the rolling radius doesn't change as the tyre profile needs to be changed otherwise the speedo will be out.

    Offset wise, I'm not sure what the standard 18" wheels are but I can tell from pics that you can get away with at least 10mm front 12mm rear spacers (much like the 8p) so with that in mind a wider offset will fit. I will be keeping the stock wheels for a while at least and running spacers.
