    I personally love my car with these alloys, and im quite happy my order of 3sdm's 0.01 had to be cancelled (waited 2 month's for them), these were my 2nd choice but now im wondering why they weren't my 1st.

    Just wondered what everybody else thought of them.

    Ive got AP coilovers waiting to be fitted but Churchill insurance won't cover me for them, insurance with them ends in 6 weeks so ill be renewing with somebody who will cover me, ill get updated pictures once the coilovers are on.

    Hmmm...I personally think that these full on polished alloys only look ok on a black or grey car, darker coloured cars etc

    As long as you like them that's all that matters...

    Edit: I prefer the 3sdm too

    I'm sorry man

    Lovely car though

    edited the heading, I keep calling them rotiform's there actually Finest 13 (a german company) near enough identical to the rotiform's

    having never heard of the company before I was a bit unsure about buying them but being Germany im sure they'll be good enough, only time will tell

    They remind of a wheel from the late 80s possibly early 90s .....it may of been on the early golf convertibles, they looked nice...it's a nice wheel, I think they would look really nice done in anthracite with your colour car..

    I think it looks spot on mate, i would being in the solar orange club myself . I personally don't like black or anthracite on the solars it's to much. I think the chrome look really nice and complement the mirrors and car perfectly!!

    Not a fan of black either ....at least with anthracite you still get a nice shine off them at night like polished alloys when the lights hit them...

    I don't know if it's the height or the photos or the thick tires, but this in my own worthless opinion has to be the worst alloy/color comb I have ever seen on a solar orange. Such a stunning motor, come dude you can do better than that. Have a quick search on Google for some inspiration. There is a clear difference between being unique and... well you know the rest. But hey as they all say, as long as... no sorry I can't finish that line lol.

    Too much of an Essex car for me, stands out far too much.

    S3's are supposed to be subtle, you know, wolf in sheeps clothing..

    Set of 19 inch rotors would go nice tho I'd think. There's a reason most people stick to OEM.

    Tbh bud, everyone has different opinions so asking what people think really is a mine field lol.
    The main thing here is.... Do you like them? If you like them and would be happy, and when driving makes you feel good? Put em on ������

    I like how they look, something different! Rotors are far too common, keep these on mate!

    Will look even better once the coilovers are on.

    I'm a big advocate of if you like it then eff everyone else's opinion

    Car looks beautiful and this is a criticism of rotiform wheels in general but for me they are just too 'busy' in the middle.

    I vote for 18" OEM rotors dropped nice (not too much) on coilys it will look spot on.

    I think these wheels being polished and the car bright too is a little much. Maybe a darker grey/black wheel would give a more aggressive look?

    Anthracite is a nice colour if you was to powder coat them in the future...really think it goes well with bright colours like solar orange and sepang blue etc

    Love it!

    I personally would have them in satin/matt black but all the same it's looking awesome.

    If you need any help with the insurance please do give me a shout - I'm sure I can arrange a competitive price for you.

    Cheers

    I don't think they're too 'bling' at all.

    Once it's lowered, they'll look much better IMO.
