    Not my cup of tea.
    For me it would be either Ultraleggera (anthracite or matt black) or BBS CHs.
    Ultraleggera in 18" for performance, and BBS CHs in 19" for looks IMHO.

    Think the wheels look a bit too 'fat' for the car..

    Didnt know H&R did a coilover kit for the S3, im looking to get some coilovers for mine pretty soon.. Do you know the owner?

    RS6's will make any S3 look like an everyday A3

    An S3 is to stand out from the rest - keep the standard rims or get something a bit more flashy!!

    They look nice... but do look like bigger A3 alloys.

    I want some wheels but I cant find any that I think will look good :( well I found some really nice ones but then found out they cost just over £3k lol

    I think that looks mint! White/black look good together.

    tbh I'm not sure, around £1500... but I dont mind paying more if I really like the wheels though.

    Not keen on split rims, these ones I found were some forged 1 piece :drool:

    Pleased its not just me, thought my taste might be getting a bit oldfashioned.
    Its certainly becoming more and more popular though. Think if you do go the dark wheel route then you need the polished rim line around the outside.
    Still not for me.

    cheers
