    Nice choice,

    The RS6 alloys really suit the S3 IMO

    Car looks good, my s3 is black too and it got a polish today.

    I'm going for the H&R springs that you have, they are in my garage atm, I'm hoping it's going to sharpen it up a a bit.

    Cheers

    The 18" MTM reps are made by an Italian company called AZ Alloys. They are quite a faithful copy , but the 19" versions are the 007s (which I have).
    They don't half look big in those pics though.

    That looks awesome with both the mtm and RS6 reps - Those RS6' look huge!

    How much has it been lowered by and does it scrape?

    Going from 18's to 19's? Or in general?

    Going from 18's to 19's I didnt really notice any difference but i do drive compassionately anyway, always avoiding bumps and potholes etc...

    On the softest setting the Koni's are excellent.
