Looks good but I was thinking of the 5-spoke half-grey Rotors.

Oh, the Sline ones. I could find a good deal on them hence why I went with the S3 ones.

Not a problem buddy. Also, I think you are referring to these ones? If so, I believe these came with Black Edition 8P and not 8V. I had kind of similar but in 17s that came with the car.

My stock setup was kind of similar but in 17s. Although not exactly the same, the below picture would give you an idea of how these could/would look on an 8V.

Don't want 19s. Not a fan of the rubber band tyre look. Also don't want to make the ride any harder.
 
fair enough, not for everyone, but I would like to add that there was little difference in terms on ride comfort and noise - if any TBH.
I went from 225-40-18 conti SC5 to 235-35-19 and you would be pushed to notice any negatives.....
the aspect ratio of the tire is a percentage of the width, so the "35" is only a smidge smaller than the "40" at best but on a wider wheel there isn't much difference.
If you don't like the look then I get ya, but don't be put off by potential noise or comfort issues.

Appreciate your experience @craigpanthercrystal and thank you for enlightening me. Will take it into consideration should I decide to change my wheels.
