Lol at my tongue twister sentences these days!
Cheers Dan will have a look.
Car looks epic PaulS3.
Love the look 100%!
Thanks for all the nice comments. I love the looks right now, but it is always nice to hear positive reactions
ahhh i wish people would stop posting pics of speedlines haha, i like them way too much but they are too big and too heavy for what i want
car looks stunning btw!
Just weighted my original 18 inch S3 wheels with winter tyres. Weight was 23 kilo exactly. I weighted my Speedlines without tyres and they weighted 15.3 KG. What would a 225/35/19 tyre wight? I think my 19's aren't heavier than my original wheels. That was where I was worried about but for now the weight is fine for me
yes my 17s seem heavier than my speedlines do ?
thanks mate.. but much nicer cars on here than mine thats for sure! trying to decide on a black grill or not right now to be honest lol
But update from Easter Break was.. some Easter Brakes
fuzion, i'm trying to decide on a black grill or not at the moment too.
I think you for sure as it will match your rims.
Perhaps once I am lowered, I can pull off the black grill, but while I am standard, I'm not sure how it will look.
its not just the weight issue, although that does contribute, i think from what ive read, decent 19' rubber is about 11-12kg so thats an increase of around 5kg per corner, and when you apply the rule of thumb about unsprung weight, that works out to about the same as having an 80kg person in the car. which is why im wanting lightweight wheels, that way i should be able to loose around 5kg per corner on 18' wheels. the other issue is with 19s you need to run stretched rubber, which i admit looks good, but any stretch compromises the handling of the car, and i dont hang about when i drive and at least once a week drive the car very very hard
sorry if that got all a bit geeky sounding, but thats the catch-22 situation i find myself in.... performance vs looks and im still torn between them!
red should not work there but it does for the simple fact it "shouts out loud" lol Your pictures are top class mate, no one can take away from that, also theres some beading going on there lol
black grill on sprint blue just works no matter what colour your wheels are in my opinion both you and fuzion
ive been feeding my self off these pictures from page one and all i have to say is WOW!!!!
yep there is some really nice cars on this forum
looking nice and clean there dude
Sneaky shot of mine, not where I want it yet though

Any more plans Col?
A test for size...
A few pics of my new S3.
Quick snap of mine
New pics of the rear lowered. It's by no means clean, I know. If I'm honest, I'll probably change out the front springs in time to VW Racing ones too for piece of mind and it'll be bang on for me.
