    I'd personally go for original RSTT Rims (they are RS4 rims with the correct offset to fit your A3).
    In my opinion i've yet to see better rims on an A3!

    JimboA3, They are Mille Miglia Cup 3's. I bought these from Wheelmania a couple of years ago for £1450 with conti's, and this was when 19s was expensive! Unfortunately, they are no longer in production, so you'd be very lucky to get a new set.

    No unfortunately there arent any yet available for the new A3! Im sure as soon as the golf 5/A3 hit stateside there will be much more available.

    I love those BBS rims but not the price!

    They suit the car nicely but would look even better on a Golf for some reason!

    When I was at QS tuning a while ago, someone in an RS4 had the MTM bi-moto wheels, but had them coloured in this really nice grey sort of colour, looked awesome.
    Anyone seen anywhere they will do this?
