    Well I got to install my rims at the weekend!
    The wheels look great and arn't as heavy as I thought they were going to be.
    They are 19x8 with an ET44 running 225x35x19 Yoko's.
    They fill the arches great and i've not geard anything rub yet.... See what you think.
    I'll try and get some nice pics over the weekend.

    Nice, we like. Certainly much better than any OEM wheel that has ever been bolted to an 8P variant S3.

    Great pics DeckedS3!! I think if you run on 225/35/19, you shouldn't get any rubbing as some of the forummers here would attest to.
    I was previously on 235/35/19 and they rub on load.

    I really really like the BBS CK's. Can't justify paying loads of money to change rims though.

    Your car looks stunning with the CK's, IMO they are one of the best looking wheels BBS has made and they definitely look like they belong on our cars

    Nice one Decked, that looks awesome, wouldn't mind some myself, but can't be seen to be copying!

    Just an off-topic question, but what wax do you use on your car, the metallic flake looks a lot more prominent than it does on my car?

    Coilovers (PSS10's)

    I use Dodo Purple Haze and Red mist topup. Actually really easy to apply and buff off manually.... The paint comes up great with a nice gloss.

    How do you find the ride using PSS10's ? Is that with standard springs ? ( new to this game so sorry if i am asking daft questions ), What sort of price would you be looking at to change ?
    I will be fitting the same CK's in Anthracite when i get my car with exact same dimensions as your wheels and tyres, and so am looking at the options to prevent rubbing.

    Love the look of your car by the way, beautiful

    Thanks, They are full adjustable coilovers, so shocks and springs. They are about £1500 IIRC (that may of been fitted), but IMO well worth it. Really easy to adjust too, about 2 mins to adjust the whole car.

    Cheers for the info
    Just wonder what is the ride height compared to just fitting H&R springs to standard shocks ? Keen to know as you mention you don't have any rubbing issues.
    Also with the settings you can choose does the ride go from softer than standard thru to real hard for track day type use ?
