    The car drives pretty much as it did with the standard wheels, So im happy all round.
    As for the wheels being heavy... they are as near as dam it the same as the standard S3 rims

    I like chunky spokes on a car like this.
    My plan is to get another set of light weight wheels for any sporty driving. but im more than happy with how it looks and drives with these on

    bloody hell, after all these years, someone has managed to do something original :O I'm properly shocked.

    Takes a few minutes of staring at it, but yea, they look wicked!

    Nice one Paul. Details?

    Can't help thinking the centrecaps need colour coding too.

    Prawn...
    Is that sarcasm? i realy havent seen these wheels on an S3 before,
    They are Porsche Cayenne wheels,
    8j ET57, Im Using 40mm H&R adaptors,
    I was unsure they would clear straight out of the box so to speak. But they do and im happy.
    Dan, this or nex friday? what sort of time?

    Very smart Paul, agree with the centre caps could do with going darker ....

    Thanks all,
    I decided on these after many many months
    I did at first borrow a set of 25 mm adaptors... they looked lost in the arch, Im glad i braved the 40 mm option in the end

    Well done, good choice! Suits the car with the darker colour wheels
    and it's a bit different, which is refreshing. Thumbs up
