    Hmmm, not feeling those to be fair.

    If you're after some rims then have a look for some S3 Avus rims, there's plenty about and will look MUCH nicer than the ones you've posted.

    I've seen an a3 knocking about with them on and think they look quite nice tbh.

    If you like them, get them....It would be boring if we were all driving round on rs4 reps wouldnt it???

    To get them looking their best though you will need to sort you ride hight out.

    LOL, the pic doesn't do those rims justice do they. They are OE Audi rims, I think quite an expensive optional extra, but I don't know the name of them, sorry.

    On the B5 those would be Ronal Boleros, no reason to assume different here. They would have been an expensive option form the Votex catalogue

    cool. thanks for the help everyone. As some people say, these look better in the flesh and the ride height on this particular a3 was high at the front but looked better at the back.

    I do like them tbh but as someone else said - i like the avus ones better.

    Just want to be different. I think that with these wheels on and lowered would look pretty cool. Maybe some spacers too.
