Looks great.. do you have any rubbing issues with the spacers?
Not as yet. Not had more than 2 people in the car recently though. No issues with 2 people though.
Will update you once I've had more in the car.
Well I've had a car full today and happy to report that I've had no rubbing issues.
I am getting my rota wheels refurbed next week which will have slightly stretched tyres
8.5 inch wheel with 8 inch tyres so minimal really. Will put some photos up if them too.
Are you running on 16" wheels?
How do you find the ride on the SE suspension (which I assume you have)?
Loving the cup holder illumination on a night
My car arrived at the dealers today. Will hopefully pick it up this weekend.
Don't like the colour at all. Sorry but it doesn't suit the saloon or any S3 imo. Hope you like it...well you gottta live with it.
That's the beauty about tastes and opinions. Everyone has one and they all are not necessarily the same.
I would imagine you have chosen a grey, black or white vehicle for a more conservative approach. I'm not a conservative person I prefer things a little more loud.
I like it Bain0 Very nice indeedy!
What colour is that? I guessing you are in Oz with those wheels I so much want!
Fair comment. Having previously owned sprint blue and racing blue mica I went with a more 'conservative' blue, Estoril blue crystal effect which offers exploding pop effect in the sun and a sophisticated British discerning gentlemen look when overcast.
Enjoy your new purchase ;-)
That's orangina (bottles) on order for me then lol
Awesome colour mate!
Looks like Porsche Riviera Blue to me, though a little hard to tell from that photo. Could be French racing blue but that's a fair bit lighter.
Here are the shots of mine! One of the last Estorils around - limited edition

Yep! It's Riviera blue. Once I get the car, I'll take some pics in the sunlight.
Might shine. It won't pop though ;-)
Proper exclusive colour. :-D
God, I'm good!
Again great colour mate, look forward to seeing some more pics.
After a long six-month wait finally picking up my first car, bring on September 1st...
Ha. It's not designed to pop. It's designed to be driven hard.
Indeed they are. Paint pop is just an added bonus ;-)
Finally get round to doing this
Excuse the dirt on the last photo, was just to show the fitment of the wheels when they were first on
Not sure why two of the photos haven't uploaded as thumbnails but they still work when clicked
Nice rims mate. What are they? Size?

Here is a pic of mine taken last weekend:
Looks like Keele Hall above
It's Bovey Castle in Devon
Just a few miles off then lol
Car goes in for detail before pickup next week.
I think mine 'pops' a little more than your blue and it's not even in the sun
Definitely not gentlemenesque though!
^ Looking foreword to seeing more pics of this
Looks like Volvo Polestar color... Anyway, nice color and car
That's a better pic! Nice colour. No flake no pop though sorry, it definitely ain't crystal like Portuguese blue still nice though but not at the premium audi charge
I came very close to ordering Riviera Blue but decided against it at the last minute and ordered Nogaro Blue.
Do love Riviera but I couldn't live with it as a daily driver for the missus
Mine in nogaro (again )
Really need to get some decent pics sorted of mine.
Again awesome colour mate, look forward to seeing some more pics
Less than two days to go until I pick up this!
Finally, here we go! After 8 months, my glacier white S3 is at home...
Congrats bro!!! Very good taste!!!
Look gorgeous buddy
This looks way nicer than the white 3 door Golf R IMHO
Looking good mate, something different with those wheels!! 8 months is a big wait bet your glad thats over?
sorry bud, however daytona will look awesome too. when do you get yours?
