    the centres are bolted onto the dish rather than the dish bolted on the centre. thats why the lips look smaller but there not.

    Agree about those LM's seems a bit strange. I have Reps. Anyhow, love the RS6(?) LED tucked into the front bumper :)

    A contribution from over the pond in the US. Wheels are VMR 709s, 19x8.5 ET45 w/235/40/19 rubber and seem to be a replica of Audi Titanium edition wheels. I've since moved on to Audi OEM CHs so will post up pics shortly of those.

    Some people have really bad taste when it comes to wheels!

    Most of the ones with BBS wheels look sweet though :icon_thumright: And the red S3 Sportback with S5 style wheels looks great too :yum:

    Looks really nice that, makes me wish I could afford air ride :( , liking the akoya one with the anthracite wheels too, wasn't sure how mine would look with darker wheels but really like that so may consider that.

    i do have a set of facelift s3 rims that are being reconned in a unique finish that should copliment the black s3 very well

    Sounds good mate. I see the MY11 (or whatever it is) BE and S3 BE will have the TT-RS rims, only 18's. Nice looking wheel, better than the current S3 one. Unfortunately though, will be ten a penny soon.

    Does anyone here have pictures of the original S3 wheels painted?
    I like the style of my wheels but was thinking of redoing them in anthracite or gunmetal.
    Also what size spacers would people recommend to fill out the arches a bit better?
