    at the minute i have 17" 5 spoke alloys on the a3 which ideally would require a refurb :(

    i have been contemplating several ideas of what rim to go for:

    stick with OEM and go for new rs4, S8, rs6 etc...


    ive gone off the new rs4's - they dont suit the car i think and within the next couple of months they will be on every VW/Seat/Audi


    S8 (18") - is the clincher for me at the minute - i got a photoshop of them on the a3 which i will post shortly

    rs6, old rs4 - every VAG car has them


    people are saying to me to be totally different and go for a euro style rim along the lines of BBS LM's, RX, CH, Keskin alloys, Porsche etc...

    what do you think?

    personally i think i want to keep the a3 OEM because i have made the mistake before madly modifying my 2003 clio :tocktock:

    what im after is a lovely a3, with a bit more flare that stands out from a normal everyday a3...


    thanks

    these do look good but i can see these becoming as popular as the old RS4 wheels. Allready a lot of MK4 golfs around with these new ones on.

    i know what you are saying mate - its the same in Northern ireland

    every other Seat, VW or audi had the old ones and ive seen several now with them on - only a matter of time i guess but they do look well on the car and thats what matters
