    Hi all,

    As it pretty much says in the title which ones do you prefer?

    I have a 2009 black edition with the twin spokes titanium alloys which I love, however i'm interested to hear how many others (espcically non-black edition owners prefer) prefer the rotar alloys instead?

    I will try to add pics up later as cant seem to do it on this bloody iPad!

    Cheers

    Steve

    I also have the twin spoke titanium alloys which i had refurbished and powdercoated recently to a slightly darker colour which I love. Rotors are nice too however God forbid if you ever kerb them. They are meant to be a nightmare to repair! Are you thinking about changing your wheels?

    Tbh mate i'm really in two minds, i just don't know if it is worth the expense etc..

    I'm more than happy with the ones I've got, I just like the rotar wheels too...

    Rotors m8 :)
    Although I love the 7 twin spoke ones, for me the rotors really set the car off.

    I have the twin spoke titanium ones on my BE. My BE is white and the alloys are slightly darker / gun metal grey colour and they look so good in contrast to the white.

    The rotars are nice and trust me if I had of gone for a an 11 plate (rather than a 10 plate) id of had them on my car. They are nice on a black car, but the titanium ones look better on a white car

    looking mint m8 :)
    Don't know if I like the rotors in black, bit too much black against the black if u ask me.
    On a white car with black pack and panoramic roof I bet they would look immense :)

    Black rotors look cheap and tacky if you ask me.

    thanks dude. I am pleased with the outcome. Didn't want to go full black for the reasons you stated. My friend has a 2013 Golf Gti and these are similar to the rims in the picture above and I think it looks great IMO

    Love my rotors but I'm actually such a fan of the twin-spoke wheels I asked to spec them from the factory. I couldn't :(
    However not too disappointed at what I ended up with!

    I've got twin spokes, but every time I see a BE with rotors I get a little bit moist :unsure:

    I would have replaced my twin spokes for BE rotors but I never came across a set that didn,t need a referb of some sort so as I wanted darker wheel's to go with monza silver I had my OEM one coloured gloss gun metal.

    I have 2 sets, one OEM titanium, and another in satin black, I was considering getting the diamond edge lip painted white to match the car, but just don't know if I should do it.

    I was thinking that it might look pretty decent if it was done,. like the RS3 red and black versions - only white and black instead.

    Don't think it would look too tacky this way.

    I prefer rotors but it seems like everyone does, cos every modern black A3 I see in this area has them, which makes me not want them :(
