    My S3 turns up mid April, and Ive been trying to get some discounted BBS CH alloy wheels, but all sources seemed to have dried up on these, well at a decent price anyway. For around the same money I am thinking of these - MTM 19" Titanium - What do you think - bare in mind my car is white with black optics and privacy and wont be lowered;

    IMHO, they look dull to me...I like the pic of them undressedm, but on car not so. Clearly I know they are titanium in asthetics... and darker looking wheel looks like it should be more on a raz boy car?

    Wrong wheels, but the general idea is here - I think white is the only colour that you can pull black/anthracite wheels off successfully

    I have a valetter that works for me, so no cleaning problems. Its just something Ive always wanted to do a white car with black wheels- maybe ill regret it when I come to sell it in 8 months or so, but only time will tell!!!

    And buying the one at Bramleys - No way, wrong colour and Ive got a hefty discount off mine, over £2000, so no point buying used, and I also have a specific spec

    Me neither - they look so much better nice and shiny.

    To me the black/grey thing always looks like 'winter wheels' which misses the point when these wheels featured are @ £1600 a set.

    Each to their own of course..plus if you keep the standards you can put them back on come PX time so no harm done.

    They are too shiney for me - I prefer the antracite look and today have worked out a nice deal with QST for the wheels

    I dont understand, why there's virtually no mention of brands like OZ, volk racing, enkei?

    Other wheels I would consider include enkei RPF1, oz ultraleggera, volk ce28, or te37.

    These wheels might suit a Datsun or a Toyota, an Audi really needs a European wheel. I`m not trying to be controversial here, but the Jap wheels only really suit Jap cars IMHO.

    To be totally honest, I only rate Audi OEM wheels on modern Audis..........

    They are not too dissimilar looks wise, however I prefer the MTM's, and arent the Sportec's quite heavy compared - so Ive read somewhere before. What price are they?

    On a small side note, I actually saw a white S3 in the flesh yesterday, which is my first, at Worthing Audi - Oh my god, it just looks stunning, cant wait to get it now

    White S3s are stunning Oli, good choice! I think the sportec is a nice looking wheel than the MTM, imo.

    those MTM look very nice! I wonder I would they look on my phantom black.

    I am not the tuning type and will leave my S3 alone but those wheels are nice!!
