    Hi Darren, you'll have to get replica's as the PCD is different between A3/S3 and A6 (100 & 112 respectively). PCD is the diameter of the stud layout.

    OK I see what your saying, now i know thanks Andy. Just one thing though so how does it work with tt/rs4 9 spoke rims, as i know Audi do these rims on some s3's, a3's a2's and obviously the tt. So surley with the 9 spoke rims you can buy originals, do you see what im saying. It gets a bit confusing lol /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif. So is it just the new rs6 5 spoke rims that dont fit due to the pcd? Just trying to get clear how the wheel situation works, cheers buddy
