    badly need a new alloy for my 55 plate a3 s line tdi, and have seen a blurry picture of an 08 s line alloy for sale. ( THE FIVE SPOKE ONES ) It looks really similair to me, but would be most greatful for any help in how i could confirm whether the 08 alloy is the same one as i need. oh yeah, bit clueless technically, so please go real slow with me. many thanks in advance.:)

    Which wheels do you have? The five-arm RS6 style wheels?

    These were available on '08 and switched to the 14-blade RS4 style on the facelift.

    There are plenty of these on ebay so have a look if you're unsure.

    they're the rs6 style ones, which i see that other manufacturers e.g vw and others use. Is it as straight forward then, in terms of sizing etc just to get 18 inch rs6, and this is all the info i would need? told you i was clueless, but appreciate the help. cheers.jc

    If they are original Audi A3 s-line alloys then that's all you need. But to check, they are 18", 7.5J width, ET54 offset and 5 stud 112. Don't buy the A4 versions as these are different width and offset

    RS6 style alloys are very common. They are on ebay all the time.
