    Does anyone have any pictures of the new S-line alloys, either


    18” x 7.5J ‘10-spoke’ design alloy wheel (£200 option)

    18" x 7.5J '10-spoke' design titanium matt alloy wheel (£395 option)

    As the configurator doesn't really show them to well, and the standard s-line wheels seem too chunky, for me.

    Hi TDI-Line,

    As Fragup has mentioned I currently seem to be the only member on here that as gambled on the Titanium wheels and I really glad I went with this option.

    If you want any more photo's please let me know.

    Hi Fragup, that would be great.

    I could do with some close ups showing the colour of the alloy and what the titanium is like.

    They do look really good, and are a good option. Even though they sting you for another £400. :(

    I've got the anthracite common looking rotors on my black edition A1, so there always a good look, but sometimes it's nice to be different. Even the black edition A4 give you a no cost option to change alloys.

    I think i saw the normal version of these on a TT today, so will have a search on them.

    These are the F38 Wheels in all their glory.
    Basically the wheel internal surfaces are a light Titanium finish (not as dark as the A3 SB Black Edition version) and the external faces are a polished surface.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    What does F38 mean? Have never heard of this over here in Norway or is this the depth how much the rim is pressed in from the centre of the rim what we call for example ET45?

    Regards,
    Tom
