    Well at the moment I have standard sport wheels and I'm looking at the r8 v10 style alloys. What are peoples opinions on them does anyone have them or anyone got a picture with them ? At around 550 pounds is there something people would strongly recommend my car is a 3 door ebony black a3

    I don't think that they will look that good on an 8L... Too edgy on a curvy car, but as I always say - it's your car.

    As said dont think they suit an 8L, i personally think they dont suit the 8P either mind. Ask some one to photoshop some on a picture of your car.

    I really wanted to R8 V10 alloys as well. Ive got Black Edition so dont think it would show that it is a BE. Decided im prob gna get S3 rims sprayed anthracite like benskin above think they look really good!!!!

    The only problem there could be is that they have a different offsets between the fronts and the rears, well they do on genuine R8 v8 alloys

    R8>R8 V10

    In this picture, the lack of lowering, and the small wheels makes the A3 look like a Q5 lol

    They are the V8 rims. I like them but prefer the V10 rims.

    think there are a couple guys on here selling some, but not sure on the price, if you want them new, i think rim style is about the cheapest place about

    i think they could work. the only thing is that i don't think they'd work with your black grille. if you swapped it for the FK S3-a-like grille for the S-Line bumper then i think they'd look really good.

    agreed with benskin tho, get one mocked up on a computer first, then take it from there.

    in regards to the reps, i personally wouldn't recommend them. i've never owned a set, but i've heard enough horror stories for me to want to keep it that way. only issue then is that OEMs are rare and expensive, and you'll need 2 sets because you'll need 4 front wheels

    The would need to be reps as the the rears are RATHER wide! I think the V10s look ok on the R8 but on the A3 I think the V8s look better.

    for those of you looking at the RS6 style rims, are those 18" or 19" you are talking about? My 2011 is coming from the factory with that style of rim but in 18". I'm thinking I might keep them for winter rims and get 19's for summer.
