    I had the opportunity to get these in 18" but the damn clutch took the money.

    Lovely alloys mate, I genuinely do love these.

    I dont know. Ive never thought the new s3 wheels suited the car. But lined up in his garage they look pretty nice :confused:

    Maybe it IS the slimmer rubber?

    I swithered between these and the S5 wheels as always thought these looked too small on the S3 and the S5 wheels looked bigger, fancied something different from rs4's and i liked the S3 wheel so i thought getting them in 19's would solve it!

    Will get pics posted once car arrives, thought about trying them on current A3 to see what they look like but cant be arsed changing wheels!

    Very nice. Are they genuine Audi or can you only get the 19s as replicas?

    It's funny how an extra inch in diameter can change the a aesthetics of wheel design so much.

    In 18" guise I'm not a fan of these or many recent OEM designs tbh but in 19"s these and many others look great.

    Be interesting to see what these look like on the car. They look like a LOT of metal in 19" form!
