    Never thought that these wheels would suit the 8L but they look really, really good. Are they 19s? Reps or OEM?

    Ajd S3 - that looks amazing, what sort of arch work have you had done to get them under?

    Literally all I've done is roll the front arches, so in other words folded the lips up on the inside, and trimmed the front and rear arch liners to give me a bit more space. The rear arches themselves are practically flush as standard, so I didn't need to touch these. There's absolutely no rubbing, not even on full lock or over bumps.

    I really wanted to take the car up to Audis in the park this year, but unfortunately it clashed with my holiday. Really wanted to let people see it in the flesh!

    So if i see it right, being that I have an a3 and that s3's have wider arches. With a bit of rolling, 8j rims would be achievable. I'd love a set of rota's, but quite keen on team dynamics 1.2. What et are you running?

    8J would be achievable, but they would be VERY wide. Even with arch rolling, you'd probably get away with it, but it'd be the legal side of things I'd worry about...
    My wheels are ET 23.

    I wouldn't know exact measurements you'd need for your car, as you've already said, mine is far wider. Maybe ask some of the other guys with modified A3s?

    Hey all.
    Posted a few pics before, but finally got round to taking some better ones after a good polish and wax. Sorry for the massive dent on the bonnet, I've a previous owner to thank for that..
    My car's pretty standard atm, apart from: forge 007p, plate surrounds, wind deflectors, aero wipers, black grille and Re-badged. I'm planning on
    getting the facelift rear lights and lowering it 25mm with some RSTT's, then going to look at some performance mods.. :eyebrows:

    Hi

    Wheels are marked as 8x18 et35

    but my old BBS reps where marked the same and sat 20mm further inward so not 100% sure.
    They are 8" wide though, just offset is not as marked.

    Regards

    Ah right they look really good as they are. I have just bought some 8.5J for my A3 but they dont have a ET stamp on either as theyre reps so a bit worried they wont fit. My thread is in the 8P section if you wanted to look.Thanks for the reply!

    Wilts, where are your back lights from, I like them!!!

    Gregor the car looks cool dude, in the best and fastest colour too ;)

    Wheels wise I would do them a charcoal colour, I have mine in a gunmetal colour and they go well with the silver.

    Tricki - like the rims, very good.

    Nilz - agree re colour for the rims but I still say yours are too spangly! Man, that glitter sparkles in the sun.
