    OEM S3 wheels for me. Search Ebay should get a set for around 500 with continental tyres, steer clear of the copies all the reviews I read said they were sh**te and I'm happy I waited for the originals to turn up. Happy hunting.

    The BBS CH Black Edition are gorgeous but not cheap!

    Bit of a strange question - £600 OEM wheels vs £1.2k~ aftermarket ones?

    It's all down to personal preference.... I think one of the things you have to think about is what else you'll be doing to the car.

    I think the BBS will look out of place if the car isn't lowered too, but the OEM S3 alloys would look smart at standard ride height.

    Yeah i agree with you the car will be lowered when or if i get these type of alloys either 17 or 18's (most probably 18's) they costing £1,550! thats 18's not sure about the 17's

    As for the OEM S3 alloys they are quite nice and agree about the height aswell
    thanks for that DPM and S3IZZO
