    Thought I'd pop some pics up of my A3. First car and I'm very happy with it up to now. It is as I bought it up to now, but ready to start with some small mods to get the ball rolling and see where I end up.

    The images weren't great so I cropped and colour graded them plenty in PS to disguise it.

    The black grill looks seriously nice. Once it's lowered put some MY11 rear lights on, they'll look sweet.

    Very aware of that! Need to get the wheels on first, then start on the next mod. Still haven't put my Lamin-X on yet either (even though I bought them like 6 months ago)!

    L80EWY, you have a linky for the grille? Is it straight swap for the 8P2 grille?

    You would have to trim it slightly to fit. A3 grilles are bigger than S3 ones.

    Yep, they are indeed Speedlines, ..probably the most sought after and most loved OEM wheels there are!!! If my car had come with those fitted, I don't think I ever would have swapped, lol. :wub: xx

    These are known as Speedlines, but they're the original BBS version. Speedline took over "OEM" production when BBS discontinued the wheel. Or maybe the other way around, I don't remember.

    Thanks for these, your car looks awesome! Think I'm going towards CH's or CH-Rs. Not sure about black but really like the anthracite or smoked chrome looks. You don't have any pics of your with different colour CHs on do you?

    Thanks!

    loving the chrome and black combination you have going on... the chrome slats on the grill with the black surround, chrome fogs and mirrors and even in the headlights... very mean looking :wub:

    ET is more relevant compared to width than diameter (as in the wider the wheel, the more ET comes into play). I guess you have to watch all three, as wider wheels can sit further out if the diameter is smaller.

    You want 8, 8.5 or 9" wide. Standard S3 wheels are 7.5" wide, ET56 and my 8.5"wide ET48 speedlines fit fine, and someone on here has 9" wide wheels with ET42 that only need the rear arch screw removed since the car is lowered so there's at least an idea of ranges for fitting. Inside has to clear the strut of the suspension, outside has to tuck under the arch. Use this site to play around with what can fit: Wheel Offset Calculator
