    Hey guys

    Anyone know how the 18" RS6 alloys look on a Sportback? If there are any pics out there I'd like to see them so please share ;-)

    Will they fit no problem?

    As long as they have a PCD of 5x112 they will fit no problem. This means if you buy a set of reps make sure they're not from an old A3 or MK4 Golf as they wont fit.

    Although, the RS6's are very common, they do look good with almost any car, especially black ones.

    Hi mate

    It was fantastic bud thanks for asking!

    Never saw your lovely black a3 unfortunately ;-)

    Funny thing though... the hotel we were staying in was the same place as the teams for the Under 17's Euro Championships which was also out in Antalya...

    Meant I got to have a pint with Tommy McLean, Billy Stark (Nice guy apart from his allegiances) and Hugh Dallas one evening...

    John Fleck was there... as were a few other of the Rangers lads so that made the holiday much better!

    The only time we left the complex was to go to the Scotland Turkey game at the Mardan Stadium and to visit the markets...

    Great country mate... you must be loving it living out there!

    Also - to everyone else... many thanks for your replies... most helpful.

    Standard RS6 wheels i dont think will fit an A3 as they will be around 9" width(maybe more) and have more of a dish than the standard S-line RS6 style wheel. The S-line wheel is fitted with a 225 tyre and i would guess the RS6 would be 265 or 275 maybe which wont go under the A3.

    Excellent. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. I'm heading down to my summer house in the south a fortnight later. Not as warm as Antalya but Bodrum is stilll very warm. Around 32ish at the moment and getting warmer by the day.

    The mountain roads down there are stunning. I'm looking forward to taking the the Audi. I always feel like James Bond when I drive down there...the birds, the car, the scenery!!
