    Does anybody know if the 18" Black Edition Rotor alloys on the previous A3 or the current A1 will fit the new model?

    Different offset though I believe. IIRC, my 18s are ET53.

    Nope, the 8V isn't very identical to the 8P, the 5x112 is, but offsets range from 43-51 for the 8V, whereas the 8P ranges from 47-56, with ofsets mixed up between sizes 16-19 wheels.
