    Mark,

    If you're refering to the standard uk spec A3 1.8T Sport /1.8TQ 5 spoke Competition wheels then i believe they are

    16 x 6.5J on a ET = 42
    PCD is obviously always 5 x 100mm

    S3 are

    17 x 7.5J 6 spoke Avus on ET = 32 IIRC (obviously not including later ones on the 18s 9 spokers). Is the ET on the 18s the same?

    18's are 5x100 ET35... This is perfect for an A3, although an S3 could probably run ET30 for the best look.

    Would that not mean that you are sticking out about 10-15?? from teh arches? When i had the S3 wheels on my A3, they were ET32 and sat outside the arches.
