    Yep... probably on coils... but on a budget :ninja:
    Still not sure on 18's or 19's purely from a comfort view, i dont want to feel every crappy pothole and i drive around alot of speed bumps in London and dont want it catching the front splitter

    18s and 19s are about the same, not much difference

    I have heard the ride is more crashy on 19's and i do loads of miles a year... dont want to do my back in and constantly have to fork out on expensive rubber bands... but im still considering 19's as it just looks amazing!

    When i do go down the alloy route i will be fitting coils on first and alloys later... don't want to have the Q7 look

    Sounds about right ash, nah I wouldn't say crashy. My car on standard S-Line suspension and 18s was crashy.

    Hmmm... your on air though... just hovering around :p
    i need to start with the coils and see how that feels and then go from there. but to be honest that would probably be later on in the year... got too much going on now and want to do the auto lights/rain sensor install first... and i still need to buy the proper mirror

    They are 3 piece RS's. Mine are 2 piece Super RS's and I think mine look too small at times, especially the front. Your right though mate, they are too small for a SB, you can get away with them on a MK5 but not the Audi.

    :lmfao: yes! The first thing is to get it notched and sort the from end so it sits even.

    Grill is now black, got 2011 rear lights and repainted tank.

    Got heaps of plans, so keep your eyes peeled ;)

    Big no!
    Bolt pattern is way off! you need to get 5x112 and offset above 42 is recommended.

    The silver A3 is fitted with the Votex kit. It was a factory fitted option. I have it on my car too!

    depends what offset the ones are that you have ordered as you will need pcd adapters to make them fit, which will make them stick out of the arch more

    Those roti's are nice, seen them on an A4 avant in gold. Would have definitely gone red would have been spot on. Works are lovely too :)

    the offset can't be a range it is just a number like 42, the same goes for the pcd it can't be 120 &130
    you must have had some correspondence with them confirming width, offset & pcd?!
