    Are you going for genuine BBS or the ebay reps?

    If your going for Genuine rims then awesome, but you won't see much change from £3K!

    I had 19" LM reps on mine (regular silver). They looked cool, but definitely go for 19's, as 18" LM's look über-small.

    i'd have to go for some reps, would love some original BBS but cant afford to shell out that sort of money! Do u guys reckon i go for the black with polished lip or just plain silver??

    LM reps are not very good,they look good for a while,then the chrome around the fake bolts start to lift
    and water starts to get under the laquer.
    I had them on my girlfriends 4motion so do know from experience

    I think anthracite wheels look good on a silver car, and no don't get LMs reps, get back to the drawing board :readit:

    BBS LM Reps are the worst reps you can buy, every set i see look f**ed within months.. you can always tell they r copies when u look close too.. as evocos said they start peelin instantly cause of the design!

    Have to agree my best mate had a set of 19" took about 2 months for them to start lifting around the edge.

    The only thing with lms is it seems every tom **** and harry with a vag has them.

    As for the rep alloys,heard alot of bad storys about the buckling and even cracking as the alloy is soft so if you looking to get a set id defo look for genuine alloys

    I love LM's, think they suit the A3 perfectly but yeh shame about the quality of the reps.

    Cheers for ur advice guys! I guess it's time to go back to the drawing board as reps seem to be a big no no! Now to try and decide on what wheels would suit my car. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ;) here is a pic of my car to help :)[​IMG][​IMG]

    i dont see the point of buying top brand tyres as my car is a daily so couldnt justify spending money all the time on expensive tyres (im a tight arse i know )

    I never go budget from previous experiences of awful road grip - plus I always run stretch, so Falken is perfect level :wub:
