    Anthracite I'd say like black edition wheels, although I kinda think they looked nice in the OEM silver colour

    I've just bought these from ebay :

    [​IMG]

    18" AUDI A3 96>03 TT RS BLK & POL 5 SPOKE ALLOYS | eBay UK

    But the company that are selling them are saying they won't fit My 2004 Audi A3. Which don't make any sense because these wheels look exactly like the same one's on the new 2010 Black edition . He saying it is a 5x100 stud pattern , and not a 5x112 ....which seems very strange to me.....as it looks like the same wheel....is it true that the audi a3 8p is a 5x112 stud pattern ???

    well if its a 5x110 pattern wheel then its a rep rather then an oem & no it wont fit as the 8Ps are indeed 5x112

    OP says they are 5x100 so they wouldnt even go on with wobbly bolts. If they were 5x110, wobbly bolts would do the trick!

    Why the hell would they make them in 5x100?!

    They look tip top Fran. Where can you get the black centre caps and are they standard size for all Audi wheels incl BBS?

    They are 5x100 because they are reps for the 8L A3 (hence the 99-03 reference).
