    to be honest, My wheels are in that bad a state, would cost too much for me to refurb, plus il need tyres soon. and i want 18's rather thatn 17's. the wheels in the pic will only cost me £300 with good tyres and are virtually scratch free. anyway. comment always welcome.
    Unless anyone has some nice TT RS Wheels going.

Dont no how much but they are in a1 condition with pirreli tyres all round. I was going to have them but i am happy with mine and ive just spent a bloody fotune on all new suspension.

    I like those alot. They are quite old school, and you dont see many Audis running these wheels. I say go for it, they certainly look good on the S3 in that photo.

    I will do mate.....if i get the new wheels it will have to be a quick turn around as i live in a flat and have nowhere to store a second set.

    I like the wheels personally, i always have (since my nova says - sorry) and i nearly bought the car in the photo, so all i have to do is talk our lass round...haha.

    the RS4 wheels are my favourite, but every other S3 has them so would rather something a little different.
    thanks for your comments guys :beerchug:
