    I've got some SuperT's to go on mine when the current tyres wear out. Always liked them but a real pain to keep clean.

    grill trim can be removed with the grill still on car just pull from the inside edge till you get it started just take your time, i sanded it with some wet and dry and sprayed 4 coats of Plasti-kote matt black super enamel spray paint from Halfords matches really well and seems pretty tough !

    Ok, gotta be honest, those OZs look **** from a dead side on!

    Dunno why but they look purposeful from the front etc... hmm... not a choice for me now

    Nice upgrade with the RNS, how easy was the climate unit to get out? and do you have a part number for the replcement smaller unit?

    pic is not good phone camera they do look different in the flesh and most wheels have been on sooo many S3's will post better pics of them, but i am in 2 minds about them...!
    climate panel releases on 2 clips panel in pic is the original unit just shaved down to fit i have a template if you want one.! just cover panel with masking tape draw round template onto tape, cut most of excess plastic of with a dremel or hacksaw blade and then sand or plane to shape, i used a small hand plane looks a bit like a cheese grater!!!
    if you are thinking of doing RNS upgrade PM me for info......

    Yeah I know what you mean, Ive got some Brocks on mine that alot of people dont seem keen on, but I like them and think they suit it well. Think the problem is that any wheel in 18" looks tiny from dead side on with an S3, blame those arches!

    Will be looking at RNS upgade so will bear you in mind when I get round to it.

    I dont think all 18's look too small on the S3.

    I considered the Oz's before getting my BBS's. I think the OZ's will look better when the car is lowered.

    not sure the S3 suits so many spokes, Ive seen R32 wheels on S3`s and they dont look right imo.

    I would defo lower the car first before deciding to change wheels. A guy on here had some of the TT Sport wheels (similar look to the OZ's with lots of spokes)fitted to an S3 they didnt look right until he lowered the car, then they looked spot on imo.

    Sorry, still think they look small on there! The arches are so big even totally flat faces wheels seem lost in them

    I dont personally but dont think they looked amazing on R32s, one of my many reasons for not choosing one!

    Mind you I run Brocks on mine so I know nothing about taste!
