    There is a dark blue a3 with a set of these in 19" near me. They look like reps though. I used to want a set myself Fran but now im not so sure, I think you need a big brake setup to pull them off!

    Satin black speedlines are the wheels for you lad...

    2 sets of fronts would do it, seen it done on a Golf mk IV with Porsche rims (also 11" rears, so used 4x 8.5/9" fronts). I mainly meant I wanted to see the style in 19" though, not the 18" that most reps seem to be.

    A lot of my pics are from when I was looking for an A3 last time ;)

    Huge rims and air do it for me though. :)

    9.5x18 et28. Anyone know if they will work on the rear of an 8P SB?

    8.5x18 et33 - will this run inside the arch on the front?

    Nate: do you know?

    Damn. Thought not.

    Need 8.5"-9.5" 18s either in a monoblock style (ruling out real 10 hole a8 10 holes at 8"). Those CLS have always looked nice on the mk4 platform.

    The other style that will work is with a dish. Want OEM though really. I'm being fussy I know but something will pop up.

    19s with a dish (and OEM) would also do it for me.

    Idle Saturday afternoon pondering... :)
