    Are these just the rotor RS3 style wheels? Why are they fitted on a new dealer S3 if there not an option?

    Those are audi exclusive wheels. I believe they are an upgrade option. Looks really good on missano red and amalfi white.

    Ah right, how do they differ from the RS3 wheels? They look identical

    Yes strange, why offer wheels in some countries and not others,I would have liked a 19 inch option for the hatch, wonder if the dealer will let me spec the above pictured wheels except in 19's

    Think the standard S3 wheels look fantastic - one of the nicer wheels Audi do.....

    Bit bored of rotors - don't think they have aged well with the more up to date models.

    I agree,I was more interested in seeing Wether the rotors fitted straight on the 8v as I'm looking at cheap winter wheels for mine when it comes

    Yep I've done the Rotors thing, had it on my S3 8P Black Edition.

    Now it's on everything! :p

    Different ET from the 8P I think. So you might have to hunt for one with an offset that won't foul.

    Rotors have had their day IMO, I've seen a few 8V's with them on though, although they all seem to be abroad.

    Rotors FTW!!

    I think they're one of the nicest wheels Audi does IMO; instantly recognisable as an Audi.

    Pretty much the first thing I said to my dealer was "S3 sedan with Rotors please" :yum:
