    Hell yeah, black mirrors would totally perfect the look! Fuzion, loving EVERYTHING you've done, ..black diffuser and front lip are such a subtle change, but they work so so well!!! Beautiful S3, Dude. Now get some gloss black B-Pillar covers on there, lol! :wub: xx

    thanks guys..

    BBS CK's. However looking at a few other rims now including LM's for something different as spars.

    Photos are a tad blurry as it started to rain on the way to take some pix, tried avoiding it but the rain followed me lol.

    Paulie, whats the part # and whats involved? LOL Mirrors i thought about it, might wrap them first and see ..

    Can someone explain the differences between BBS CK and CH? They look very similar.

    What specs/sizes would I need in 18s and 19s?

    Whats the best BBS colour to go with Sprint Blue?

    Looking to upgrade :):)

    CHs have a chunkier centre area, CKs are more spokey... if that helps? CHs also say BBS Motorsport around the middle too, don't think CKs have that. Have a look through the Rimz [sic] thread and you'll start to learn to spot the differences between the wheels. Also, check out CH-Rs (I think they're the replacement for CKs) which are basically a blend of the two designs with the bonus of a rim protector/lip.

    18 vs 19 is subjective. A lot of people will say you need to get 19s (and I'm one of them), but looks at Paullie's thread and you'll see that's not always true. Also depends on if you plan to lower the car because 19s will cause more problems if the wheels is wide, or the ET is too low, where you'd have an extra 1/2 inch of play on an 18" wheel with the same specs.

    Silky, I've had both CK and now CH, both in different colours over silver and both in 19" as they look bigger and better. I've got loads of pics, so let me know if you want more! For now, a few for you to mull over...

    Sprint Blue and CK's in anthracite:

    Sprint Blue and CH's in Black Edition form:

    You either love or hate Black rims, but one thing for sure is you do lose the detail of any design with darker, but especially Black rims. They work for me as I'm obviously going for the Blue and Black theme.

    Hello, im new to all of this,

    I bought this car yesterday! i have a few Q's if you wouldn't mind answering! the speakers in my car only work in the front is this normal and do you know if it would cost alot to have them sorted out in the back? also, it came with the standard audi chorus cd player which i'd like to replace with a sat navigation system, do you know if it is possible?... do you know of any good product that hides light scratches and blemishes?





    Thanksss :)

    Speaker issue could be one of three things:-

    1. Balance is all to F(ront), and needs to be set to play through both F and R. Should be a dial somewhere, or an option in a menu. I don't know the controls on a Chorus unit, but sure someone can guide you through ruling this out as the issue.

    2. Wires are loose/broken, either at the connector, along the wire itself, or at the speaker itself. That's a bigger problem in terms of sorting, at it requires trim being removed, the unit coming out of the dash etc to check, and also someone who knows what they're doing to replace the wires as needed. Shouldn't be too expensive, but might take a while.

    3. The speakers themselves are blown. Is there any sound coming through at all? If this is the problem, then you can replace like for like with OEM parts or look at after-market replacements.
