    My replacement car has the uber expensive 255mm front rubber, in the metal the front wing flares seam massive!

    My crappy pic does not really do it justice

    Looks the same as standard to me, I don't think for one minute that Audi are going to make a different flared carbon-fibre reinforced polymer front wings to offset the the different wheel sizes.

    No exactly my thinking. Like spacers tho can make the car and wings looks wider.

    Good pics tho. So for 1500 notes you have 255 over 235 and/or not wider alloys??

    The wings are wider on RS3's compared to S3's.
    i think their described as " more sculpted" I guess to match the front end differences.
    They are also plastic along with the bonnet.
