    I put up a post not so long ago about S3 alloys on my A3 i wasnt quite sure what the ET was on the said wheels but after we got both sets of wheels of they were both 7.5 ET54 i dont know why but for some reason i thought my wheels were 8.5 ET45.

    So anyway here are the pics :)

    I also decided to make my rings black at the same time took my about an hour to mask everything up fully i roughed up the rings a little and went straight to black without priming which i hope will be ok i put 4 coats of black and 3 coats of laquer. If it does come off i will just get some gloss black rings off ebay.

    Nice, need some more pictures of the new wheel. You planning to lower it? I've been delaying mine, I do a lot of miles last thing I want is a harsh ride

    I will get some more up when i get them cleaned :) I am more than likely going to spray them black when i get the time to actually do it but lowering is one of many things i hope to do, The roads in Cyprus aren't the best but i think if anything a harsher ride will encourage me to drive a little more economically!

    List of things to do:

    Rear ARB
    Lowering 50mm
    Induction
    Remap
    Wind deflectors
    Front lip

    Thats about as much as i can do with this car but give it a couple years then il get a nice S3 :)
