    Well I suppose they could be fitted with hub adaptors. Really do look smart.

    I think they just look like the Lotus Carlton wheel, the one's on the Lotus are 17" IIRC and wider at the rear. The pis of the S3 clearly shows a split rim with studs, which the Carlton isn't.

    They look very nice. I can't read german, but I think they are split rim look, rather than and actual split construction.

    I would check to see if they are sided wheels. Might not look so good with the spokes facing forward on the other side.

    They will look fine imo, my Cup wheels has the dogleg spokes and you don't really notice the direction which ever side you look at my car.
