    997.1 Turbo wheels??? Personally i think they look immense on a Porsche but dont think an A3 can pull it off. Not even the Cayman or Boxster looks right with these IMO.

    you know new ( current )
    new compared with my car any way lol.

    i think these are brilliant.

    the ones you posted are dimond cut/ finish and the lacquer always goes funny on them. my dodge, my wormates golf, and my best mates is200 all foctory fitted wheels ( Not replicas) and they always go dodgy

    Agree Fran they are nice but standard on RS3, RS5 and Black Edition. Saw them on an A1 the other day. Suppose its the same as the old RS4 rims they were done on pretty much all Audi models. Shame they dont keep them more exclusive.

    Edit: Just remembered they are on the TTRS as well!!

    and the mondeo too my sister has a 54 plate mondeo and all the rims are fooked , i know what they types of wheels are like as i respray them all the time in work (in silver) they take ages to do too as you have to strip all the bad bits off real pain in the rear beleve me lol , and yes the main dealers very rarely replace them they cant have any kerb marks at all otherwise they say its down to driver error we have had loads of arguments with the main dealers trying to get new rims out of them lol

    how much did the guy say you could have these for? If you want something that will look better than your current wheels, just grab some oem audi alloys. You can pick up RS6 alloys for less than £300 on ebay and look better than the above.
    I still think your current alloys would look better than the above too max power type for me

    He said I could have them for £200. But now you've said the max power thing I know what ur sayinging lol I think I'm probably best just trying to save some cash then get the ones I really want

    What size are the wheels? You'll need slimmer tyres

    Not my favourite Porsche wheel, but they do look better on the car than I thought they would... might be the brakes tricking me though.

    Fran, those VWs are nice, but a bit plain, no? The tyres on that pic look a little thick too. The slightly darker finish would suit your red car though, and presumably not an expensive wheel - they'd be good for winter wheels.
