    Cheers for the comments, they are 9x19 et54 with 30mm and 45mm adapters. I could still get away with another 5mm on the rear but the adapters are already affecting the performance as the unsprung weight is now quite a bit more than factory but I have always favoured form over function.
    Arches are standard and I am also running Eibach adjustable top mounts and AP coils with all the helpers removed, no scrubbing of the wheels but the plastic undertray has taken a battering today!

    Thanks for the positive comments means a lot and a huge thanks to S3_Kev for all his advice on fitments and clearance.

    Because I am stupid I am going to space the rears another 5mm a side before UD and I need a plan to hide the state of the bodywork until I have the money together for a replacement bumper and front end respray.

    Beautiful S3 KevP. Loving the splits, are they BBS? Great numberplate too, wish I could afford it.

    And a fine 5 door TQS Reesyboy!

    Front needs to come down a bit this afternoon to get rid of the slight RR I'm currently sporting. Although that could be due to a set of weitec coilovers and an ARB in the boot!

    Another pointless post, a few pics of the old beast before it was laid up for 9 months


    taken about a year ago, when it was last in daily service, just before it's last trip to the ring.


    Wheels are now on my new A3

    I have had Porsche 911 Turbo Cup 3 rims on the A3 1.6, used the brake handle while turning and the nose moved :rock: sold them very quickly. Was nice for the looks, but to drive?? no.

    It's like 19 inch, but roadbumps a lot in the Netherlands, try to avoid them with 20 inches, but for the rest it's not really a difference in comparance to 19 inch. I hate 18 inch it's less comfortable than 19s. 17 inch in winter the origional wheels, 19 inch in summer. The S3 gets a full respray end february/march after that i'll decide what's next.

    I will never buy 20 inches anymore, the tyres aren't strong enough, the joke had costed me brand new tyres 1680 euro in a couple of thousand kilometer more than 1300 euro, after the claim i got 325 euro back from Pirelli. Pirelli never again! The next set will be on Bridgestones or Dunlops again in 19 inch.

    The S3 gets a complete respray at the end of the month or begin of next month. I doubt about changing the color into the grey or white of a Lamborghini... has anyone suggestions? It will become a private car with 1000 - 2000 km per year, for work I have ordered a brand new VW T5.
