    I collect the CK's on saturday, what wheel bolts are you guys with anthracite wheels using or does anyone use oem covers so that the colour matches up ?

    Also, I currently use 37psi front, 33 rear on the 18" wheels, what tyre pressures do you Guys with 19" use on your S3's ?

    Tyres are Goodyear F1 225x35x19

    Cheers

    I bought matt OEM black covers from ECS in the US to match my black edition CH's. For some reason you can only get gloss black from VW ?.

    You can get Anthracite ones from Audi, that they use on the black edition wheels.

    I run 33psi fr and 36psi rear on mine with 225-35-19 F1 Assy's.

    As Japper said, use a set of Black Edition covers for the anthracite CK's. Perfect match. :icon_thumright:

    Everyone seems to be told that they have bought "the last" set of CK's in the country. I bought mine back in mid-February and they were meant to be the last set in UK then, but have now seen at least 3 other people having bought since then. All sales hype me thinks
