Looks very nice!! Hope you enjoying it, post more pictures
i'm sure that's shinier than it was before it left here
good to see you on here mate......
ты и тут сидишь))
and what is wrong?
A couple of pics off mine.
самый лучший форум:thumbsup:
Some great A3's in here, got the wheels on mine today, quite happy with how it turned out, they are 9x19 Range Rover Sport HSE's
lol looks mental
They look amazing!! Any clearance issues? What offset are you running?
Every credit to you doing something different
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!
Supreme they are some nice wheels they look really good on your car!!!
looking good supreme
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.
I like the style of it. Do you have a front pics. of it?
A few of mine from the last 18 months, Now sold
your S3 is very very nice ... and low !
Couple of my 1.8TQS, nowhere near the standard of most of the previous posts but
Beautiful S3 KevP. Loving the splits, are they BBS? Great numberplate too, wish I could afford it.
And a fine 5 door TQS Reesyboy!
Cheers bud, no not BBS's they are DZ's
utterly pointless, low res phone pic of my filthy car.....
Sat here at work on a saturday morning, so thought I'd take a snap
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
Seriously looking forward to spending more time in it again! it's not stripped, with buckets and harnesses, and a **** load of fancy kit waiting to fit in the next few months!
one of my S3 after a good machine polish.
They S4's them Prawn ??
yeh they are
Utterly pointless, lol
You know thats a good shot, haha...
Think it looks sweet mate, really loving them wheels and colour of the motor
Nice tidy looking car Reesyboy...
Perfect ride height mate, like the stance
Prawn those s4 rims look awesome, i wanted to go them for them but couldnt find any
here are a couple more of mine since i have fitted the spacers, lowered it and sorted the wing mirrors and grill out
Nice motor. Are they reps or genuine BBS CH's?
BBS CH's - Posssibly the best wheel for the S3!
I have had Porsche 911 Turbo Cup 3 rims on the A3 1.6, used the brake handle while turning and the nose moved 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.
reps unfortunately...couldnt afford the rear deal
that looks lovely Rob B
My new baby. Not perfect, but not too bad either!:thumbsup:
Might as well add a couple of photos to this as well
Here is mine
Ever been stopped for your tints Luke? Gotta love a bit of Imola!
What are your wheels Nick? Looks good.
