    Bit fancy for my liking, not really in keeping with the S3. But that's just my opinion, it's your car after all.

    They look like they weigh more than John Prescott and I don't think they really suit the lines of the S3 to be honest.

    As common and unoriginal as they are I think you can't go wrong with the RS4/RSTT rims. Suit the S3 to a tee.

    The dish is nice on these as i almost bought a set, the centre's are a little bling.bling but i was going to have the centre's colur matched to the car. Nice

    I think you will need spacers to clear the front brakes.

    i like them. they are very similar to the wheels on my pals GTO. they look savage on that, will look different on a A3, dont know till you try them and depends what look you want.

    You don't see many 8L S3's running dished rims, because they don't clear the brakes at the front. It's even harder to fit if you have aftermarket brakes like Brembo's or Porsche calipers. The way the spoke sit inwards in the pics makes me think it won't clear the brakes, but I'm just guessing, don't know for sure unless you try.

    Love them! Says on the page it'll fit so hopefully they'd accept them back if they didn't... worth checking with them though.

    I like them, although i think you'd need 19's to make them look nice. The 18's will look small but the disadvantage of getting the 19's is going to be the weight.

    Not on an 8L but personally i think they'd look quite nice > http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/9041/63350821.jpg

    19X8 ET35 with 235/35R19 is my setup, I'm running 5mm spacers front and 10mm rear. You will need ET30 for 8.5" wide rims

    i like the deep dish but personaly i think that they would look a lot nicer in a matt finish rather than polished chrome
