    need to find out before i start looking for center caps, apparently the reps don't have the same center caps as genuine wheels

    I thought real ones are 5x112 only where as reps are multi stud both 5x100 and 5x112. Could be completely wrong. Mine are reps I believe

    I wondered about this aswell, mine are 5 stud so I thought they were genuine but a mate told me that's not the case. Anyone got a definitive way to know for sure?

    Offset, genuine ones are ET33 or 32, don't remember which one? After marketare usually multiple of 5's, so ET35 or ET45

    Real RSTT wheels have the audi logo and a VAG part number in the centre (covered by the cap)... they are 5x100, 18x8 ET33

    Don't confuse them with RS4 wheels... RS4 wheels are of course 5x112...

    Depends on your reps but you can get the genuine caps to fit some reps with slight modification. My first S3 had RSTT reps and I used a junior hacksaw to trim some tabs off the rear to create a snug fit. Perhaps buy a genuine one from the dealer, see if it's possible to fit (with or without modification) and if it can't be fitted easily, take it back?

    I found out mine definitely are reps (were on the car when I got it) and managed to source a center cap for the rep wheel from eBay, did see a guide about fitting the oem ones to a rep wheel though so will keep it in mind for when I get the wheels refurbished
