    Great looking rims! But as N8 said, you need to either fit a lowering kit, or some fat chicks.

    Something looks wrong, and I ain't talkin about the fat chicks.

    Even with OEM wheels in the first pic, the suspension looks way to high. More Allroad then A3.

    Thanks for the interesting replies lads. lol.

    This comment is true, my drive is slanted and the other pic is also on a slope, so I think this is the casue of the weird looking stance. Need some better pics but it was raining all afternoon.

    Any suggestions on springs, as I wouldnt want too be too harsh/crashy ride.

    You can't really get any more crashy than S-Line, you want to invest in some coilovers lad.

    Still looks high for an s-line to me. Especially the front.

    As for suggestions on springs I can only comment on the Eibach Pro's I'm running. Ride height is about the same as standard s-line (about 10mm lower in fact) but the ride is less harsh.

    It sits high because its not an S line, No front fog lights are the big giveaway! Also in the one pic you can see the cream coloured interior mirror and A pillar trim. All S lines have black so it looks like he has put some S line badges on an base model......correct????

    I'm so sad for noticing this stuff lol

    Lol - Lee_R

    You are correct - very good attention to detail to notice this. Its an SE 2.0 TDi with S-line badges, though Fogs and eibach springs are on the to do list.

    needs a spoiler and will then look great!

    Also as a tip, dont use any nasty wheel cleaners on those wheels as the laquer will come off, i've had a set myself and they dont stand up to road salt too well so keep them clean:thumbsup:

    thanks lee,

    Could you recommend what I should use to seal/clean the wheels. I will need to get this stuff soon as the weather is getting really bad.

    Car will look good once its lowered and a spoiler attached. For springs try Damien over @ DPM.

    Lol your not sad Lee. I notice the same things, we either spend too much time on ASN or thinking of Audis ha.
