    If you're going for some new rims, i would highly recommend 18 or 19". I think it looks really sweet on A3. And when it comes to coilovers i dont have much experience. All i know is that i want V-MAXX or Supersport black evolution. Those are pretty cheap and has good reviews + they lower your car 70-80mm :)

    Originally for Abercynon but moved up blaenrhondda.

    Did you need spacers to get the 9J on ok?

    Yeah, I got a pretty good selection of spacers, I tried a 5mm on at first but opted for an 8mm.

    Their the same offset as the S6 and the same width, (ET52 9j) so was an easy choice to get them fitted.

    You off to Krispy Kreme on the 25th?

    Can't make the 25th unfortunately as its the Mrs 30th - simple choice when you value your life :whip:

    Definitely up for the next one though.

    Old A8, maybe original S8? Kind of look like coupe wheels too.

    Just joined up, looking to get myself an A3 in the very near future, either 3.2, 2.0 TFSI or just 2.0 FSI, in three door. There's some lovely machinary pictured and some inspiration here for sure!

    Appreciate this pic was from two and a half years ago, but did anyone else spot the evil clown sat in this wheel arch flare -
