    I thought they were 45...but it does depend on which model, i'm assuming B6, because the B5 had 17" rims I think and the B7 is normally 35. There are variances though depending on which wheels are fitted and sometimes the style of wheel can mean an different offset is required for the same car.

    I think they are ET45, reason being, i have seen them looking good on an 8L S3 using adaptors so they would need to be at least 45 to not look silly with the adaptor at least 10mm.
