    Maybe the price of the wheels might sway your decision, whilst shopping around for the same wheels last week, the RS4's are generally about £100 cheaper than the RS6 wheels (inc tyres) paid £575 for 18" RS4's with Avon ZZ3 tyres for my passat fitted at my local alloy shop. - so shop around for the best deals, or buy from ebay if you don't mind waiting for them and fitting yourself /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Here's my old TQ with RS4-style alloys I bought from Rochford:

    These are the 17" variety by the way as I decided the 18"s looked too big for the A3 arches.

    they look good are you happy with them, i can get the 17 inch rs4 for £450 as i know a guy that works there and the RS6 for about £550, so you are right it is about £100 difference!

    I was quite happy with them but I no longer have the car! I would note that one started to corrode on the inside of a spoke quite early on. They cost me £350 fitted as I already had 4 good tyres from my previous alloys.

    The car wasn't lowered but I think they have slightly lower suspension than standard 1.8Ts in any event.
