    8.5 sounds about right if they fill the arches like that, providing youre not running spacers too?

    I'm running with 8.5 aswell and they fill the arches the same so I think both front a rear are 8.5 although I'm gonna guess they're 19-20"?

    Very nice! I'm looking at having my alloys re coated in black with a flake in them, and was thinking gold calipers would suit well, yours is mint! Black grille aswell? How'd you manage that one cheers

    Here's some pics of the DRL LED's

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I'm finding it hard to get a good pic of the LEDs, but its not a terrible attempt :)
    also I didn't get the DRLs that are all over eBay I found a set that have the curve that the R8 ones have, but the light output has noticeably suffered, altho I'm willing to suffer for how much I like the DRLs :D

    Is the 3.2 the same ride height as the S-line or the Sport? - I'm looking at the 35mm H&R springs for my 8P1 Sport and and wanted a good example of what it will look like

    Did you notice any loss of speed or power after having these Rims installed,because of The gain of
    Weight.
    My rims Will be et48 so they Will fill The archesperfectly. I hope 225 won't be to small for 8.5j.
    I am going for 225 because this is THE most optimal Size for our Cars compared to original.

    I found them on eBay, type in A3 R8 LED DRL and there should be 2 types, theres the usual ones which dont dip down like mine, also theres black ones or chrome ones, was gonna get the black but they were a tad more expensive

    audi a3 led drl items - Get great deals on Vehicle Parts Accessories, Headlights items on eBay UK!

    they are the same as other DRLs where the light output is decreased, I think it's to do with the main beam and full beam coming from one light, but I've got use to it and I'd not change back cus I love how they look :eyebrows:
