    Hello everyone just joined the forum after getting my first taste of the silver hoops!

    Bought myself a Red 99T A3 Tdi SE sport.

    Ive just bought the 130bhp chip for it.

    Just need some help with wheels. Where is the best plce to buy the replic RS6 wheels? Anyone with a picture of a red A3 with these wheels on?

    Thank you!!!!

    Rochford Tyres seem to be the site favourite.

    Do a site search and see what comes up.

    Welcome mate. You must feel like you've moved from a tin can to a tank /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Best place for RS6 reps is Rochford tyres
  4. Welcome to the site. And I see you're not taking long to make a few changes to your new car..........

    Good man!

    Make sure you get some decent tyres with the wheels - with a chipped 130 you need as much grip as you can get. Look at Goodyear F1, Continental, Toyo, etc. Don't be afraid of shelling out - remember, the tyres are the only thing in contact with the (shitty, ****, potholed, typically UK) road.

    You could maybe look at suspension as the next step: Standard Audi is a little soggy and wallowy for me. Get it lowered on Eibachs or H&R springs, and if you can, go for the shocks as well.

    Best of luck with the car.

    Its a completly different car. The Saxo was fun for around 10 minutes, till you drove through town and passed like 27,345 of them in a row.

    I am in the same position m8 i had a shoddy VTR b4 i got me 1.8T a couple of months ago, differance is unreal.
    Question to Drew i've had lowered cars b4 my saxo was slammed (one of the reasons i sold it) wanna stiffen up the A3 does it become too hard with eibach?
    Also Spax seem good they won some german award a while ago.
