    I'm intrigued bro.....

    N8 and his alloy fetish; I get more enjoyment out of these story lines than I do Eastenders! More suspense and cliffhangers than I can take!

    When will we see them?

    I only glanced at the pics before, now I can see that they are copies.

    They will be getting debuted at Ultimate Dubs in March!

    I'm sure about this set, I personally like the wheels, but I like the fact I've not seen a single person with them, which is hard these days...

    Thank you :blush:

    I can barely see why you like it :icon_thumright:

    Thank you too! :yes:

    Aesthetically, just want to place some small, nice touches with carbon fiber to the mirrors covers, at the rear Votex lip and replace the front licence plate fitment also with carbon fiber.

    Thank you! :happy:

    LOL :laugh:

    Lower? :blink:

    It may seem not too low on those pics, but... believe me, I can't go any lower too preserve a daily ride (...you should see how bad are the conditions of the streets here...) :shrug:

    [​IMG]

    I'm also re-thinking about the red calipers... I think it looks nice, but not sure all the time :think:

    About the plans... yes... I got some things on mind, but I'll wait for time and money :sly:

    Cheers! :beerchug:

    Thanks Nathan. Just some 3mm ones for rear, or the thickest I can go without changing tires and scrubbing. Am sure there's a car on here(black 3door pic from rear) same setup as mine with 3mm and looks bang on.

    Love the wheels Probo.
    I'm wanting a set for my Sprint Blue S3.
    Did you buy them online? If so, can you tell me where from or anyone else know where you can get a set of TTRS/RS3 Titanium 19 reps from?

    So its about time I invested in some wheels, i'm thinking BBS LM's I love the look of them & think they suit A3's great especially after seeing some pics on here. What size do u think will look best ....16s 17s 18s? Not to sure if i wanna go for 19s tbh. Bear in mind i'll be lowering the car.

    19's all the way but i dont think they make the correct fitment, i could be wrong tho, so you may have to be looking at reps, which could be a good thing as LM's in 19's i think are about a several hundreds a wheel
