    I think the anthracite/ grey BBS CK's look great on A3's and immense on Akoya Silver. Speedlines are lovely though, rocking them myself. Depends what look your going for tbh

    sorry for hacking this thread but does 19'' ruin the handing of the car as I was told 18's are the best to go for performance and handling but I do love a set of 19's :)

    am not fussed about the performance, plus there's to much speedbumps and pot holes around every corner,

    19" don't ruin the ride. Mine rides better than standard on 19" with 215/35/19 tires and lowered on kw's
