    I now 19" RS6 alloys and I need a 16mm spacer on the front to clear the Brembo calipers!

    The 19" RSTT only needed a 10mm spacer.

    The ride is slightly harder due to the smaller profile for 19" wheels (35 profile) but it's not horrendous.

    I have upgraded suspension - mods are listed in my profile!

    Can we possibly see some pics of your car 'imola S3'? I really want to upgrade my wheels but am not sure whether to go oem audi style or after markets. I really like the style of the rs6 alloys but also like the look of THESE alloys. I am really considering 19" wheels but the wheels in the link look ok and they are 18's (probably down to suspension maybe?).
    Thanks

    Here is a pic of mine with the old alloys on (haven't got around to taking new photos with the RS6's)
