    I was never a fan of those wheels on the Golf (I know I'm in a small minority there!) but I think they look pretty good on an S3. Certainly beats running your winter tyres on a set of steel wheels IMHO.

    Agree, they look cool, better on the Audi than the Golf. I nearly bought some for my A4 a while back.

    Yep, me too, best colour for the Sportback is red. My first choice when buying but couldn't find a 170 at the time. An S3 Sportback in red looks awesome to me.

    Audi was a big fat fail in the snow, I also made a few quid towing and winching some bmw and mercs up hills etc. All good fun. I even helped a fellow A4 driver out, Towed him for some way up a hill to his house, being a fellow Audi driver I refused to take money :)

    i saw something in halfords the other day, a spray that you put on your spark plugs before it gets too cold to avoid it from getting damp... i dont know how good it is and i dont need it as i have a diesel :p
