    I cant decide between the TTS alloys as i like the centre cap detail, and the RS6 alloys as the look meaner both would be in 18 x 8 what do you lot think ? I know the TTS would be easier to clean but im sure i can adapt something to get in the spokes of the RS6.

    Any advice ?

    Sounds silly, but I think the RS6s suit the SB and not the 3dr so much.

    Having said that you won't get the TTS wheels in 8P fitment, and I'm very against reps. Based on that alone I'd go for the RS6s if I was forced to choose between the two.

    If i'm honest I wouldn't go fo either. RS4s look great on the S3, or try finding a set of BBS Pescaras :wub:

    Get a photo of your car up and ask some one to Photoshop them on. Then decide which one you like.
    I like the RS6s wanted a set for the winter

    Im still thinking of RS6s too. I'm not bothered with buying reps myself as long as the rubber is decent, the danger is buying them online not seeing them in the flesh 1st.

    I've just got genuine RS6's in 19's but I definitely will NOT be using them as winter wheels!

    They are for the A6 as an option, if off an RS6 the ET is too low and at 20" too big..

    Im not bothered about them being genuine, i can get both in ET45 from ebay and that way they wont catch as i have HR lowering springs on and the 19s i have now rub now and again but they do look superb (MTM bimoto 2).

    I have a genuine TTS alloy in my garage but the tyre size is wrong as i used to own aTTS before my S3, and im probably going for the RS6 replica and the person i was speaking to will power coat them any colour aswell, hmmm decisions lol
