    When I first went to look at an A3 the dealer had a sportback with these on and I thought they looked great, now I have come to place my order I'm struggling to visualize them on the car!

    Does any one have any Piccys of these alloys on a A3 or any other car come to that?

    Thanks

    I think in that pic they look like 16" - really need to find a car with them on as I don't know if I have made the right choice now...

    I think the RS6 wheels set all the Audi's off so much better, except for the BBS CH's of course. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    And Steph V6 (no longer on the forum) had them too: the fasteners on his started rusting within months, and he had problems getting it fixed under warranty !!

    Yes, they're not the same. Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

    Still, they're Audi wheels, made by BBS, and they had an issue with rusting fasteners.

    Well, ask yourself this: how often do you wash your car? Will you have the time to take extra care of the wheels? If so, and you're set on multi-piece wheels then go for it!

    However, if you're half as lazy as I am, then stay away.

    Good luck!

    I have decided to go for a roof spoiler and multi function steer wheel instead... hope I don't regret it!

    Good call, spoiler and mf wheel will be good. I don't like those 20 spoke wheels the standard s line look superb and will be really easy to keep clean.

    I've got the M\F wheel on my Sportback and would definitley have it again.

    So much easier with the CD\Radio. Change tracks on the CD, fast fwd a track, adjust the volume, change the radio station - all without removing your hands from the wheel! Also has what looks ike some phone buttons but I don't use them.

    I just wish you could adjust the climate from the wheel - all those pesky little buttons that look the same!
     
  26. come on guys get the pics up

    easy [img[ etc !
