    im hopefully getting my hands on a set of bbs chs in the near future, and plus the a3 is fitted with budget tyres which are to be brutally honest naff loads of tread just not good so id rather stick with standard wheels for the mo!

    no i think its called absolute red iirc i think the missano is slightly darker. As for the chs my boss has a set on his a4 cab am i right in saying they wont fit on, i read somewhere about hub adaptors but not sure how much they are but seeing as im getting the chs for near enough nothing i think it will be worth it lol Also i was planning on getting them refurbed in gun-metal and im spraying the wing mirrors to match too what do you think?

    oh and 1animal1 yes i am loving it but not the fuel bills so far, its on 21.8 mpg at the moment :crying:
