    they need to be et 45 or higher otherwise they would stick too far out of the arch and the stud pattern for the 8p is 5x112 so the 5x100 would not fit without a adapter

    8P (as in 04) A3/S3 is 5x112 pcd, the older 8Ls are 5x100. You should be able to get adapters to change the pcd, but they'll also act as spacers and push the wheels out a bit too so depends on the offset. I'm sure N8 will be able to advise you more specifically, but basically just look for 5x112

    Does anybody know where I can get these REPS alloys in 19"s Cheaper then £650 ....

    [​IMG]

    I'm also have trouble getting these in 19" Titanium.....as many of them are in silver only. Ive been quoted £699 ..but I think that's over priced.

    CH's are ET50 5X112 8.5 Wide

    Get some Audi Wheel Nut covers to put on your BBS nuts - makes the wheels look a lot nicer!! they are roughly 16p each but you can get them on ebay too!

    Here they are on my old A3:

    Thanks N8. I knew you'd come up trumps. :)

    This begs the next question. Anyone have any pics of a nicely stanced 8P on these rims? (9x19 et44 - will et35 9Js work on an 8P, I've yet to get a feel for that?)

    [​IMG]

    Such a shame they never did a 19" Monoblock like these 18s. (a8 10 hole "monoblocks") - and no Holstens don't count :)

    Anyone got pics of an S3 on genuine R8 rims? Would be interesting to see how they fit the look of the car. Those 19" VW Savannahs look nice too, with the anthracite inserts. Maybe someone could work up a quick photoshop from one of the lowered cars in this thread?
