    I've been looking for the same pic, I think they would look awesome as they suit the similarly slab sided mk4 and Bora very well indeed

    If you are looking at the ones on E38, I think they are well overpriced!

    Would look pretty sweet on an A3 I think but could only find a pic of them on a 5dr:

    they look sick. i think they would suit a small engin a3 as the disks are hidden they fill the space well. there very much like the s-line ones

    Yes thats what makes them cool, they look similar but different! Compared to the OEM S line wheels they are half inch wider, 9mm lower offset so stick out further. This coupled together means they sit around 23mm closer to the arch which is just about perfect. Because of the extra width the standard 225's sit nicer but look even better with 215's on.

    seems i have started something here, haha, im wanting to get my hand on a set of these or some rs6 wheels like the ones on dec's black a3 which looks similar to mine, i have the 05 plate 2.0 FSI 3dr and want to keep my mods subtle.
    also i do agree with lee_r yes i have been looking on edition too and they are very pricey but what you would expect as them seem to be very rare :S

    Theres an 8P1 the same as mine (but standard) at work with TT comps on, doesnt look like they have been changed but could be wrong, maybe thats what your thinking of rather than the Fat Fives?

    Thanks dude, mine are 8.5" wide, offset et38 all round, so the Fat Fives with et45 would probably be a safer bet to go with unless you get tyres with stretch!

    Think TT Comps went up to 17" max, not 18"

    Fat Fives have more of a flat face with straight spokes, whereas the TT Comp ones are bent like this:
