    Wouldn't be my choice but they do suit the car, so to get off the fence, yes they are Kool and the gang (don't like the porsche logo though!)

    Thanks guys, I'm also tending to agree its a very 'done' wheel and I don't think they suit the car..

    Just wish MTM made the Bimoto in 18", 19 is simply too harsh for our roads

    Me no likee either.
    Just doesn't suit the S3...too fussy.

    If the truth be told, 19" are too harsh for most roads...but it's 'the look' that people want, not any handling advantages.
    I too happen to think that 18s are the best compromise.

    Personally, i think either lots of spoke or very few i.e 5 spoke Rs6's(/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) or similar, Or loads of spokes. Not too keen on RS4 and the like.. They're ok but far too common. Just my opinion. OZ Canyon II's look /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif

    Yeah I like them, but I've got a soft spot for "deep dished" wheels.

    I do prefer a more multi spoked wheel with the dish though, like some of the BBS wheels.

    DON'T DO IT!!!!!!

    They look shockingly bad mate! Its as if they have just come off an old MK2 Escort Wideboy XR Thingy Turbo or something. They are a bit D.I.S.C.O.

    Still, paint a few flames up the wings and doors, add a roof mounted A-Team Van roof spoiler and you could bring them into line!

    /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    (Sorry to anyone that has them fitted already. I'm sure they look much better in real life!)
