    As long as the offset's right the extra half inch won't make any difference. 8" RS4's fit on a standard A3, so the bigger S3 wheelarches will easily accomodate it.

    Why do they look poor to you?

    I see, but as far as I can see, all reps are like that.

    Those are an absolute bargain! I presumed that was without rubber.
    With some genuine centre caps on they'll look the business.

    Andy, I know you are into the genuine center cap thing, but I'm finding the new silver finished centres, as opposed to the chrome jobbies pretty good.

    I'll need pics to convince me.
    I'm only pushing them as I was fool enough to pay £72 for a set back in the days when the reps were awful
