    Hang on does he mean brake rotors or the wheel called rotors?
    I guess wheels due to his r32 wheel ref?

    Hahaha. "Rotors" was the word throwing everyone here.
    A 2 piece brake setup uses rotors not discs hence the brake confusion
    Prawn thought you mean rota wheels but miss spelled
    And im such a massive boss i was right on the money!!!
    Did you see the pic ob the link i posted?
    I like the rotor wheels on the s3 but not seen them on an a3. Maybe you can be first!!
    Failing that post a pic of your car and ask for a photoshop?

    They look great on an 8P, And I'm sure I've seen them on an S3 which also looked quite good.

    I think the brakes comment was refering to the stock brakes looking a little lost behind such an open wheel

    These?
    I think they looks very nice. Was after a set of reps because I couldn't be bothered with adaptors.
    I lost interest in the idea though after having the little one and getting a house.

    I have been wanting a set of these too - I think they look great..... but I'm unsure about them being on the 8L model. Because there all on the newer models and also the new A1's I'm unsure they'll look too 'modern' of the age of the car. Still want some though!!
