    Howdy Guys,

    Quick Question please - Is the 3.2 Quattro available in the US the same as the S3 Wheel Spec Wise please?

    I would like to Import wheels and the Guys can Guarantee they will fit a US Spec 3.2 SB But not my S3 as they do not have the S in the US...

    Thank you in advance!

    Any one got photos of A3/S3 3door on BBS CK II (forged split rim) Seen them on a 8P3 S3 Sportback in Sprint blue.
    Wanted to see how they look on a 3door.

    Finally I have my Ultras and my H&R Monotube suspension. But i think i´ll setup the suspension a little bit higher....

    It is good, i like it. I was afraid that it would be very hard, but it is not. It is just a little bit harder than the OEM suspension i think just the bigger rims make it feel more harder. I´m very happy about it, because i want to drive as comfortable as possible.
    I didn´t made a testdrive on the autobahn yet, but i will do that on the weekend. Than i can say something about the performance of the suspension.

    I dunno about you but heavy wheels can be felt. But for show purposes it's no thing.

    It's not really in the static kerb weight, rotating weight has huge effect in comparison (3-5x). Changing direction on something rotating that is heavy takes more effort. The car feels heavier.

    In addition you really wanna keep unsprung weight down too (hence S3s having alloy hubs and lower arms).

    As you say though most don't care, and if I cared enough I'd switch back to Speedlines from my Mercs ;)

    High off set is better than a stupidly low one. I lied, id also swap for helios. Love them!

    A stupidly low offset is fine, because the wheels will either fit or they won't. Its not about wheels that are ET67, and you need 30mm spacers and 47 foot bolts :laugh:

    Just use bolt on spacers and original bolts.

    25mm front, 30mm rear? Job done.
