    any ideas please

    BBS all the way mate if you want lightweight, strong and good looking alloys. The only problem is they are not cheap, but then you get what you pay for with BBS rims! :cool:

    Team pro race 1.2 or BBS CH or lm, I think the 1.2 is the lightest though!

    The type m version 2 in bronze would look interesting on a yellow 8L, there hasn't been an 8L with bronze wheels yet. With an offset of 25 the centre would dip inwards more so i think it would compliment the S3's chunky arches. I've priced these wheels up from a dealer down south and surprisingly for lightweight wheels they are priced fairly:)

    All depends on if you want looks or want to blend in, personally if i was going lightweight i'd want to show them off and i think the bronze would look very tasty on your imola:yes:

    I had 18" TD 1.2s on my Mk5 R32 and you could feel the difference, turn in was sharper, and felt more spritelier!

    My god I love those wheels! Probably cost more than my S3 though.

    That website looks Max Power for VW fanboys!

    I personally love the Euro look. Kev's car is just stunning, his plans for it are also going to be great! I'm after the M3 CSL look if you get what I mean, dished concaved centres with the spokes of the wheels going inward towards the hub. It's certainly different and think it would look great. I was set on S8 Avus wheels (OEM look just 1" bigger) but now I'm set on Euro look.

    Watch this space.

    Blimey! They must be made of Titanium or Magnesium or something? I wonder how much of a difference it would make having all four wheels weighing in at just over 10kg, rather than the usual 40-50kg!

    ive got these wheels on my S3, they have had a really tough time on our BAD Greek roads and still are in top shape.. very light and strong..
    i saw a big difference compared to stock 17in rims in weight..

    pattern dictates it should be carbon fibre, no?
