    Since the S3 saloon comes with 19" alloys as standard, has anybody optioned the 18" wheels instead ?

    I think in certain markets.. 18's are the only options.. there was a guy from peru i believe on the forums who had a missano red s3 saloon and he said the only options are 18's for him. even where i live in trinidad.. sometimes audi wont allow the 19 inch wheels due to road conditions. I guess they see it as risky to their warranty on shocks etc.

    That´s partially right, here in Peru NOW we can´t choose the Magnetic ride with 19´s (but in the past it was an option for 8p).
    I didn´t try to choose just 19 wheels directly in Audi. Now i want to buy them, they look much better in a saloon.

    yup... i think we are classed in the same region. I live in trinidad and it wouldnt surprise me if we both classed in the latin america region. Magnetic ride isnt an option for me as well for the sportback i just ordered. At least you got a sedan. we dont get sedan pricing and specs for another 4 months here and hence i decided to go with a sportback. couldnt wait another 8 months for a car

    Instead we don´t have the S3 sportback option, just in the A3.
    I insist that 19´s are a nice good looking option in saloon.

    Ok makes sense.. i do find the saloon definitely needs the 19's. would you void your warranty though but putting them on?

    No, but you have to tell the insurance company about the change, just that.
