    which RS4 wheels are they mate? if they are the newer rs4 wheels the offset will be too low and they wont fit.

    Leave Rs4 and get some nice bbs buddy, they look stunning on A3s:yahoo:. Rs4 wheels look dated to me and they are so common.

    The car will look like a baby range with standards shocks and sline springs on 19s
    ideally you want to lower it so it sits nicely.

    as for a refurb get them done in something dark as your car is silver. i would say anthracite or shadow chrome.

    These are gloss black.
    Not sure what they would look on a silver A3.

    I got a real bargain of a brand new set of genuine 19" BBS CK's in anthracite for under £800 including 48 hour delivery from Germany. They came with new bolts, centre caps and valve caps. You could easily pay much more than that for a decent set of OEM wheels. MS_Autoteile shop on www.Ebay.de but I don't think they are selling them at the moment, unfortunately as I looked to buy some more for my S3 and the best I could do was a new set of 18's for £869 including delivery from a UK source. :(

    The CK's have dropped dramatically in price. My 19's cost me £1,200 in Feb '10 from Rimstyle and you can pick up a new set now for £873.60 inc VAT from Awesome GTI. Made selling mine a total mare at the time.

    Speedlines have been temporarily knocked off the top of my list by that black A3 with anthracite CKs... new mission!

    Stage 2+ is on the back burner while I try and persuade my insurers to let me increase power that much (and once I can source a clutch&bbk for reasonable money) without adding around £1500 to my annual premium; stance is now back on the agenda. Coilies and 19"s will happen before October! Though the wheels will probably be off again soon after for winter :( So much to do, so little time. And money.
