    hello, the X5 wheels are off the car already so I would be willing to sell them. They are all straight but with a few small curb/scuff marks, they also have Ruf Racing center badges. Of course the hub adapters are required also of which I have two sets, one set is less expensive (£120) as they are only hubcentric on the inside, the other set is H&R and hubcentric on both sides (£200).. The tyres arent up to much so just the rims for sale, looking for a couple of hundred for them really, let me know if interested, I can post them anywhere in the UK for £30, cheers

    im only up the road to you near dartford so could pic up.

    Let me confer with the bank manager (the wife) and ill get back to you soon. how much would you sell the cheapy hub addaptors with them for as well. if tyres are poopie would you mind leaving them on just so i can set my coilovers to the wheels as ill be fitting them very soon and would want to do it all in 1 go.

    pm me or give me a call matey :) i ave pmed you.

    One pro re-drill later and they fit perfectly, hub adapters just weren't going to work due to the already low offset

    Looks like I can go a bit lower on the front without any issues

    19x9.5" front ... 19x10.5" rear... Unsure of offset, the rims originally were custom made for a Paramount Performance Jaguar XKR and as a consequence they dont have any markings, I estimate the offset to be ET20-25. Running 235/35/19 on the front and 265/30/19 on the back although I am changing to 255/30 for a little bit of extra clearance..

    Looks nice but wouldn't it have been much cheaper to just buy a white one in the first place? There isn't many colours which don't look nice so I don't see the point in wrapping it really.

    Okay so a couple people have asked to see pics of my s3 so i took a few after i cleaned it today. Only phone pics as my friend has a DSLR but havent had a chance to get out to do some proper photos so these can do for now :)

    It's a 51 plate facelift 210 S3 in Imola Yellow. Totally standard 70k fsh with 18" RSTT's.

    Future plans are Forge 007p, Evoloution Motorsport intake kit, Forge FMIC kit, Miltek 3" turbo back system, all silicone hoses and a GIAC re-map. Styling will stay relitively standard other than the odd little touch here and there i.e LED sidelights, Aero wipers, stumpy ariel etc and maybe an LCR splitter.
    Handling wise i will go for coilovers but yet tbd on brand but anywhere from a 20-40mm drop i should imagine, nothing to big just get it sitting a little lower.
    Other than that will be tyres as the ones on there arent a massively good spec so i will go for some R888's in the summer. I also plan to upgrade the brakes slightly with some LCR 4pot Brembo front calipers with new Brembo drilled discs and performance pads. Rears i will probably just go for OEM blanks with performance pads.

    here's a few poor quality pics...
