    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

    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....

    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.
