    Hi all, I discovered over christmas while changing my brake pads that one of my S3's alloys is a replica, and even worse its got the wrong offset. Id rather not pay the £280 that Audi wants for a brand new one so does anyone have a second hand one for sale or know where i could pick one up from, does'nt need to be perfect (dont mind if its kerbed as i need to get mine referbed) just not flat spotted or buckled

    Can get them from Vag parts, £190 for wheel and cap. Not cheap but cheaper than Audi.

    IMO £190 is very good for an OE "18 wheel

    cheers for the advice people, although vag parts show it being £190 after you add VAt and postage its almost as expensive as audi, i'll keep an eye open on ebay, anyone know what size spacer i would need to make the replica sit out as far as the others? its ET is 35 were as the audi ones are 32, does this mean i need a 3mm spacer?
