    hi , im thinking of putting my bbs wheels on the new s3 and was just wondering if they are the same stud pattern as the old one. i know one way of checking would be to take of the wheel off but with the weather being so bad i thought i,d just ask, thanks.

    In short No. The 8L S3 had 5 bolts with a PCD (pitch circle diameter) of 100mm. The new 8P S3 has 5 bolts with a PCD of 112mm.

    You could buy adaptors that would allow this.

    I think also there is a big offset difference - 50 vs 35 - i am not sure if the adaptors would help overcome this?

    The new S3 offset is 59 or 56 think its 59.

    Checked this with the delaer as got offered genuine RS4 alloys I was going to put on and they would not fit as the offset on them was around 35 which would have made them catch the wing.
