    Don't like them mate. Not very OEM are they? Look like they should be on the Batmobile.

    Aren't the chrome bits just stuck on? Think they could look alright without them or at least in black chrome just to calm the over all look down a bit

    They are very 'asian' in appearance shall we say. Not my bag at all. If i HAD to put them on an Audi it'd be either an A/S5 or Q7....but you'd still have to threaten me with lethal injection before i'd do it.

    I think they are the ones with "chrome looking" inserts, which means plastic and it will fall off!!
    MTM the only way to go

    The holy grail of aftermarket wheels for the A3/S3 are MTM and Sportec followed closely by BBS. There are loads of great wheel designs out there and the car itself is too nice to f**k up with some dodgy looking rims. Spoils that whole Audi sport prestige thing. Stop reading Max Power and Fast Car.

    Have to agree with the others bud, not doing it for me. Bimoto's/MTM's, BBS or for a similar design try Oettingers or some TechArts (oooo tasty).
    Enjoy

    No, no, no, no, no!!! I really do not like these. There are lots of really good looking wheels out there, but these are not good. The proportions are all wrong and the large polished metal pieces over power the design. Good design is about subtlety, balance and proportion whether it's a wheel, a car, a building or a toaster. These unfortunately have none of these qualities.
