    I bought these last year aiming to do a quick refurb on them, stick winter tyres on them and put them on the S3.
    I only did 3 of them in BMW Sparkling Graphite before winter set in and I ended up sticking my winter tyres on the S3's standard wheels.

    So, what we have here is a set of 4x 18" R32 Aristos (OZ made) - 3x Graphite and 1x Anthracite.

    Anthracite one will need rubbed down (as I did with the others)...

    Can of correct BMW paint and can of primer included (both unused).

    You can see on one wheel where i've done a quick repair of where it was badly kerbed, using liquid metal...

    I spent a fair while on these in the end and probably used 3x cans of paint, a can of primer and a can of laquer on each wheel. As well as sh*tloads of elbow-grease!

    A Sunday, another 2 cans of paint and some laquer to finish to a decent, useable standard.

    Obviously they have tyres on - 2x Pilot Sports and 2x Marangonis - but these are ready for the bin. Just kept them on to protect the rims in storage.

    Bought for £230, spent a bit on 'em, sell for £260 , as is.

    Preferably collected from Aberdeen, but if you want to arrange a courier at your cost then that's fine.

    Thread about them here...http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...anthracite-r32-alloys-s3-opinions-please.html

    Cheers.

    Hi JS,

    Any idea on the weight or a link to the specs of these babes. Also any chance of you going over the fourth wheel for a little extra cash?

    Cheers
    Andy.

    Hi Andy,

    They're 12kg each. Ronal's version of this wheel are 12.2kg but the OZ ones are slightly lighter.

    Sorry, i'm too busy to finish the fourth one - still got to paint my bathroom and a dozen other things!

    Cheers,
    Johnny
