    Evening

    Im new to the Audi forum an after never owning an S3 ive got a question about wheels. I collect the car on Wednesday but I have acquire a set of BBS LM replica's and spacers but the catch is they are for a mk1 1 S3. My question is will they fit a 2007 S3? Also can you run in standard unleaded fuel or is super best?

    Any help is appreciated

    Cheers
    Grant

    8l wheels are 5x100 and 8p are 5x112 so i would say that they won't fit.
    and for the fuel just the best IMHO, with lower octane fuel s3 doesn't feel good.

    It wont be a problem to just flog them on ebay and get some that actually fit 8P. Happy for you getting S3! Its an awesome car you wont regret just make sure you remap it:]

    I will probably remap it as I am only 30 mins from Star Performance who have a good reputation. I presume the difference is noticable?
