    im new, so not sure if this is actually right place for this

    but this is my dolphin grey s3, owned it nearly 2 months, done a fair bit to it

    had full passenger side, bonnet, bumper and boot plinth painted fitted genuine audi brakes all round.
    fitted apex springs, i already had the wheels.
    also sanded and polished the headlights as they were faded.
    and a few other bits.

    but anyways some pics

    criticism good or bad welcome

    Cheers bud, And yeah dolphin grey is my favourite s3 colour.
    And yeah 18" s4/s6 wheels, genuine so running 20mm adapters all round
    but rears need spacing a little bit more i think.

    Nice, car does look pretty sweet. Id love a set of S4s, but just cant bring myself to part with the cash for it to ride a bit worse... Then I see another photo of them on the S3 and I think twice!

    thank you, and apex say 25mm but its more like 40mm

    in all honesty there not that uncomfortable of a ride even with the 215/35 tyres.
    and ive had the wheels about 4 years now, as i used them as winter wheels on my passat. but s3 came with a shocking set so
    put the avus wheels on it.

    if you're local to leeds, feel free to have a go to see what you think

    Very clean! i like this a lot, sits perfectly on the wheels as well. I kind of like the no center cap look aswell for some reason.
    Lovely example :o.k:

    cheers guys

    good to see a few locals

    tbh i was looking at it today and the no centre caps are growing on me, remind me of the mtm style rs4 wheels

    I like the no center caps look! I have the avus wheels for my a4, also dolphin grey, and love them! It's a great combo. I think they look even better on the s3 though.

    Also nice to see a few locals, even though you're all a3/s3 owners! Grew up in Horsforth, but moved over to Huddersfield a few years back.

    Nice, I do like the dolphin grey and I was just about to say go centre cap-less, they look different and more rallyslag ;-)
    I've done it on my mate on the s3 avus's, I just got a small centre cap for the middle of the wheel (50mm ish ) then put a lovely Audi badge on it ;-)

    Yeah, Im in a sulk now. Two lush VAGs aint fair :p

    What spacers did you use for the S4 wheels by the way? Really tempted by a set, but worried about wheel wobble etc...

    cheers but tbh the rallye doesnt look like that at minute its in bits being rebuilt.

    and i used fk 20mm adapters, haven't driven it hard tho but it feels normal when i drive.

    on my passat i used H&R spacers they were excellent quality and lasted till the other day when i sold the car and they were on the car 6 years and wheels were always being changed or being taken off for sommat

    You cool mother****er.

    Dolphin grey S3 + S4 wheels = one of the best combos there is. Those wheels just never get old.
    And that rallye, dont suppose you have a build thread on that too? I love the colour.


    P.s. Is Leeds the new S3 capital of britain? It used to be gloucester.
