    Just a quick one for you mate as I couldn't find any decent images of the wheels at the right angles.

    Note the lack of brakes as well LOL

    Not a fan TBH, but everyone to their own.

    Grr I wish you hadn't posted that LOL As I've been looking at them RH's for a while and wondering whether they would work on an A3. As my mates got them on his MK3 Golf and I've always liked them.

    I think you're right, they aren't Schmidts....

    They wouldn't work on your car anyway, it's too yellow.

    I'll have to have a set...... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    i though RH cups had a deeper dish, but the centres stuck out further, and were 1 piece.. the styling of the centre piece is definitely like RH cups though.

    I think anything spoked (upto about 9 spokes), with a nice deeeeep dish is going to suit an A3....

    TBH it wouldn't look right. They would be too dark for the car.

    Only 18" 007s but with good tyres are about £1100 but the new RS4's are around £800 what you think?

    I would go for the new RS4s Adam, not only a saving of £400, but they are most propably lighter.

    The larger arches on the S3 suit these wheels well.
