    True, but I think the same will be true about the S3 standard wheels. I have seen them on a few A4's recently. Although, I do really like them too, I just like the RS4's a little more.

    You lucky git!! I was quite annoyed when i was told i couldn't have them, but i decided to opt for a sunroof and tyre pressure sensors instead.

    I'll put some spacers on to give the standard rims a more aggressive look :)

    There is no way the S3 wheels will become as common as the RS4's, they only come on the S3,S4,S6 and S8, where as the RS4's were standard on the Sportback S-line LE, the A6 LeMans and were also speccable on most cars too.

    And there certainly aren't any reps to be found of the S wheels...

    Were the A4's you saw S4's....not many people would pay £2000 plus for a set of the S-wheels...

    I pretty much think we are safe with the S alloys for now. I must have seen around 30 cars already whether it be TT, A3 Exclusive, A4's...

    I actually prefer the S3 wheels for some reason and if they were 19" it would be even better, but thats my opinion.

    18's - not sure Audi would do 19's, prolly have to get reps if you want 19's.

    The RS type wheels on the TT are 19's (9jx19) - but I think there is a similar wheels available on the A4 Sline SE which is 18".

    Which one you got?

    The official RS4 only on the RS4 in my opinion are the only ones to go for however they don't fit the S3 due to the offset unfortunately.

    The "RS4" wheels Audi offer on other models as a optional extra don't have the dish of the original ones from the RS4 car, I have looked at loads at the dealer and its quite noticable when you see them in the flesh. The optional extra ones are quite flat faced.

    I agree, the 19's on the RS4 are much nicer than the RS4 style 18's. But the 18's still look really nice IMHO.
