Looks good Col
That looks fantastic, i'm a big fan of the OEM finish on speedlines! I assume they are diamond cut lips etc? What ET? Width? Also are you lowered?lol
Looks wicked Ad! Smoothie you know where to come if u want a set!
15.3 kilograms. Just weighted mine a week ago. They are heavy, bot look great.
Do you feel some loss of power due to the weight of these wheels?
The BBS Speedlines and both Rs looks great. Thanks for sharing
wow thats heavy! they do look amazing tho!
unsprung weight is a killer! thats a good 20kg more then the wheel i am thinking of getting. the basic rule of thumb is whatever the unsprung weight is, for an equivalent sprung weight multiply it by 4, so 20kg of wheels is roughly the same as another 80kg in the car!
when i changed my S3 brakes to my BBK i lost 20kg of unsprung weight off the nose of the car, it made such a diff!! turn in was sharper, more feel through the wheel, it held its line better, the diff was night and day so you really do notice it!
thanks for letting me know the weight, looks like im gonna have to stick with saving for OZ Ultraleggeras
I sure do mate
Loving that sprint blue s3!!
Speedlines are sweet, now you know why I want a set lad
Alloyboy does reps but you are the OEM king and would hopefully get OEM!
No Rep's here my friend, OEM all the way....want this leather done first though, have you got us a quote?lol
Nice looking houses there buddy, car isnt bad either lol
Just a few photos of my Standard Audi BBS wheels freshly refurbished in Pascara colour (Refurbed by Lepsons in Swindon Top Service).
Looking good mate, little dark though no?
8.5 x 18" Audi OEM Fat 5's with 225/40/18 Goodyear F1 rubber.
That will look lovely slammed!
Yeah your right it does need to be dropped! can't decide which route to take tbh I like the comfort but not the stance!
Good coilovers will close the gap but maintain comfort.
How much did the lm reps set you back? Look lovely!
Erm if i remember right, with a bit of hagling i got them for around £650 inc. tyres. From Demon Tweeks
What did you wrap them in? (make, size) I'm guessing they are 18's?
225/40/18 Falken's FK452. Good tyre
Does 8x19 ET41 with 225/35 fit on a 3door with coils (lowered about 4/5cm).
Also, does anyone know the part number (price?) for the spare wheel (3 door quattro), size T125/70 R18 ?
Little update on my Sprint Blue. There's a lot of chat about shiny chrome getting the best out of the Sprint colour, but I decided to go the other way. I originally had the Black Edition 18" twin arm 7 spoke chats that came with the car, but changed them for 19" BBS CK's in anthracite on pick up day. They were great, but I've changed them again since I decided to keep the car and not chop it in.
So, the new rims; yes, they're BBS and yes they're black, but for me they're new and a change and I'm loving them.
Alu mirror covers may go back on, so I'll post different and better pics once I've done that. Opinions welcome all.
Oh aye, put a set of Eibach Pro springs on her too. Front arch gap has been reduced to an acceptable level now also.
I think it looks ace, I would keep it as is!
Cheers gents. I'm still not over the Speedline's N8, will have a set one day!
I like that how it is !
Rico car looked sweet on those anthricate BBS and look lovely with the BBS Black Edition.
You have done everything i would of done if i owned a sprint blue S3. Think they look so agressive with a black alloys and grille.
love your sig photo N8
Bro thought you bought a set?
Looks good Rico, although cant help thinking it looks a little high? Certainly higher than mine, most likely the 19" doing it though! Might have to re-think my wheel plans lol
No mate. The CH's came from a mate changing his, so fantastic deal I couldn't turn down.
It's only down at the front by 20mm on the Eibach's. I'm not willing to drop it any further right now, otherwise it'll be different tyres, different roads to get home, etc. For me it's bang on though. :icon_thumright:
Oh you lined a deal up then.......no worries and good work son!
