    What matters is if you like them or not, but personally, I think the new rs4 reps look really bad on old A3's

    Fairynuff....

    Its a move away from the RS4/6 standards...

    Smitch, I thought that you had photochopped the RS4's onto my car in another thread... or I could be wrong of course..

    Thanks Booth...

    I bought the wheels that you photochopped, but I seem to be missing the Brembo's you cut and pasted.......

    If you can pack them and post them round etc etc..

    Welcome to the new RS4 rep club. Had them on my S3 for nearly a year now. Even if no-one else does, I like them.

    The old RS6's went in less that 8 hours after I took them off the car. Sold via the excellent new classified section.. Top work Ollie..

    Arse, right then I've decided I prefer the RS6's ;)

    Only kidding, I think it looks ok, its just a shame the thinner spokes make the wheels look smaller than the RS6 rims.

    The RS6's were 8.5 x 18 (and rubbed the suspension strut), and the RS4's are 8 x 18 (and dont).
