    Rotors. I'm a fan of clean, simple wheels.

    I'm not trolling.. Get standard 18's and use the money on a much larger range of quality looking rims..

    Like......any suggestions?

    Think from the rims Louay has included in the poll he is after an OEM rather than aftermarket look.

    Care to suggest these larger range of quality looking rims? Are you suggesting that wolfgang egger and Marc lichte and the Audi design team have failed in the creativity of delivering 2 types of alloy wheels still used to date on many Audi's?

    Think snowfree means the vegetable peeler wheels. These are being discontinued in MY2015 model range.

    I went to the direct link but it didn't offer me a URL to hook off so I downloaded it to my PC and then uploaded from there; bizarre.

    The ones on the sline look like a little small like 18's?

    Opinions and poll settles it then. RS in 19's hyper polished silver it is!

    Thanks all for your thoughts.

    Good decision Louay,

    Great to have seen them on an actual S3 too.

    Look forward to your pics with them fitted :thumbsup:

    Too much silver on the wheels IMO.
    Would look better two tone akin to the standard S3 wheels.
    Do like these wheels though, just the colour is too bright.

    I would go with the rotors...but not the silver ones.
    Gunmetal or some darker if possible.

    Edit: actually, both are really nice. :) So it doesn't matter witch one you choose. heh

    I bought the same Louay but in gunmetal, received them yesterday (they're awesome looking!) but yours are also beautiful. So, i don't agree, i think silver looks great on the s3.

    My new RS6 alloys will be used with the michelin PA4 i bought along with the alloys, as winter is pretty much over they'll be used for next winter.

    These look really good Louay, exactly the ones I was going to go for and your car looks identical to mine so cheers I know how they look now!!
    My thinking is that this bright silver is needed to compliment the silver rails and surrounds against the dark blue.
    I like the design of the standard S3 wheels but the grey parts look out of place with Estoril, I'm still undecided on which wheels to go for???

    Two colours going on here...silver and blue. I fail to understand what the designers were thinking about when they decided to go dark grey with the start shaped original S3 alloys which may imo suit lighter coloured cars but not deep rich estoril blue. What alloys do you have in mind apart from the RS6 C7's?

    Exactly!!

    Not sure yet but I fancy something with a concave but I'm realising there aren't that many out there I can choose from because I think 8.5" poss 9" is the widest I can go and down to et 45. Quite like Rotiform IND
