    it'd help if you got some pics up to see what it's like currently mate.

    also, which way do you want to go with the car? what are the future plans styling wise? I'd say choice of wheels would be dictated by any other mods you're planning on doing in the future.

    if you're planning on going for an OEM+ look, then some audi wheels will obviously go best, like RS4/S4/TT wheels or something like that....

    If you're going for a more obviously modified/euro kinda look, then perhaps some BBS LM's or the lamba wheels would be more suited.

    Look through the pics page at the top of the forum - all sorts and sizes of wheels in there.

    Personally, BBS LMs (or similar style) are spot on.
    Nowt wrong with the RSTTs though, except being a bit common!

    I seem to remember someone on here was trying to swap his 19" Lambo reps for a set of 18s, but I don't know if it got sorted yet or not. Worth having a look through the classifieds on here, or just google it. They'll have to be repicas, obviously, so not sure where's best to go, quality wise.

    18s are the best size for S3s if you wanna go bigger than the standard 17s

    18s are perfect - 19s can look a little "much", and 17s just aren't quite big enough, imo. Maybe, since you're going for something a little flashier, 19s will be more to your taste.

    You got some closer pics of the front and rear mudflaps, really warming towards having these, especialy the back.

    You can get LM Replicas for not much more than youll pay for the Lambo Replicas if you have a shop around

    sorry not exactly but do remember them being on the heavy side,is also a little slower but put that down to extra rolling radius
