    R32 wheels looks rubbish on an S3, doesn't go with the profile of the body, adn I think you will find that many on this forum aren't a fan of the A8 style wheel wheel neither, I personally would stick with the 17" TT comps. or if you definitely want 18's, try a set of BBS or the classic 9 spoke RS4/RSTT wheels :cool:

    Not a fan of the Momo's!!! Pah what baloney. I'm with glen_jai they are by far the sexiest wheels you can stick on an S3.

    I definitely think that before you decide on upgrading your wheels to (most likely larger ones), you should consider lowering first. Just putting bigger wheels on looks wrong if the gaps are still there in the wheel arches.
