    What's wrong with the BBS's? They look ace on your car.

    Nothing wrong with the BBS, I agree, they do look good!
    The car just isn't the same with the heavier wheels, I want to stick some light rims on, if I like them who knows. I'm planning on keeping the BBS, but run the 18's for track and general hacking about. lol

    they look sick on white car. If your after a light set of wheels you do a lot worse. You could stay on the BBS rimmage and still go lightweight with some RS-GTs , sure they'll cost a bomb though.

    Speedlines are great wheels, not so "looky looky" as the BBS but better for overall performance. I had some on my SX.

    I'm waiting for mine to come. Got em in anthracite, was going to get the Team Dynamics Pro 1.3's but put the extra to get the Turini's. Once I get the H&R springs it'll look mint.

    I might have somewhere I'll have a look! But if I'm honest (and this isnt' a BMW vs Audi thing) it was quite possibly the worst car i've ever had, bar an MG Metro but we wont labour on that one. If you want a good one it'll cost a lot of money, but I do think they are a very good looking car and certainly an appreciating classic.

    Hey guys ... First post here and as always tons of good information and pictures.

    I am looking to get the Speedline Corse Turini wheels in anthracite 18X8 ET45 (are they made in this offset)? I heard that ET45 is the right offset for a lowered application (not slammed)

    I found some at rimstyle.com but only available ET42 and silver color. I am going to have my friend from UK ship them to me or if anyone knows a US website that has them cheaper ... PLEASE let me know. Thanks!

    Have a chat with the boys at www.revolution247.com - they're a big seller of Speedline, and will let you know exactly what fitments can be sourced.

    If it's the drifting you're up for then may I highly recommend a Nissan 200sx, much more tail happy than the E30 is by a long way, and cheaper to run and easy to modify, 300bhp comes fairly cheap.

    Thanks. Now the question ... anthracite on phantom black. Any pics? The white S3 uses what size tires? Looks great!

    I can see a grey S3 if that's the one you mean? On 18's it'll always be 225/40/18's. Right (OE) size and cheap as chips.

    Grey S3 that's fine ... I haven't searched a lot here yet.

    I am trying decide still, but I am pretty sure I want the anthracite Turinis ... They're pretty light too from what I read. If there was an option in between the gunmetal and silver I would pick, but plain silver I don't like. Specially on a black car. I sent some emails for quotes (including revolution247) and waiting on pricing for the anthracite turinis.

    ET42 right? I am lowered on Koni coils and I wonder if it will be fine.

    I agree, darker wheels on black car works great.

    ET42 8Jx18" with 225's rubbed a little bit on my car when dropped around 60mm. With a minimal amount of arch work they'd be fine, likewise if it sat a bit higher, it would've been fine again. ET42 sits nice in the arches though!

    Speedline told me they don't actually produce the turini's in anthracite even though they are advertised at various places, the fit for the A3/S3 is ET42 so thay fill the arches very well

    Now that's interesting. Makes me wonder if the places selling them are selling original wheels or what ... confused now :unsure:

    If you ring the places selling the anthracite turini's, Larkspeed and Rimstyle IIRC they will tell you the same thing

    After a quick clean.... Colours look a bit dodge as they were taken with my phone.
    Don't look as bling as the BBS but I was pleasantly surprised with the handling of them!

    Have you noticed any slightly improvment in performance /handling /MPG yet?
    I want to throw on some lightweight rims next year.
