    Hi guys,

    Not a massive fan of these alloys which come in standard it seems for A3.

    How much are they worth if i decide to sell them?

    Thank you

    I know stuff like this is subjective, but I personally think these are nice and one of the better wheels audi do.

    What is it you don't like?

    Look like nice alloys, way too light color for the car though.

    Depends on condition really, from £400 up to £700 I've seen sets going for. I personally love those alloys.

    Spiky? I'm not sure, if you're looking for Audi OEM alloys these are some from the same model year brochure.

    Not too sure, My 8V will have the 18" "Arm dynamic" alloys and I'll be looking to upgrade to one of the other 18's

    As posted earlier, 400 -700 is a good price if they are immaculate. They're good quality alloys however, there are many more eye catching alloy sets out there in that price range so to sell these you may have to take a bit of a knock I'm afraid.

    I have the OP's alloys as my Winter set. I think they are OK but personally I prefer something a bit darker so my Summer alloys are 10 spoke "Titanium Matt". Both are 18". I paid £800 for a set the same as the OP but this included new Pirelli Winter tyres. PS: I don't want to start an argument about whether Winter tyres are necessary in the UK. I drive a lot in Germany and they are are mandatory there.

    Though the 10 spoke S3 alloys are common I do love a set if those.

    Is it me or the 18's look tad smaller?

    They are 18" wheels sitting on standard S3 suspension (not magride). Standard profile tyres too. Basically, no mods at all and a non-magride car.

    £400 for an easy sale in good condition, but why? They are nice wheels.

    Quite right, they are indeed ther S-line alloys. 18" , 7,5 J , ET51's. I think they are good alloys though I'm looking to change mine soon as h the wife decided to attack a kerb!!!!!

    I've got two kerbed ones, currently debating either getting them redone, or redone and put on the back burner whilst I get darker ones. One of mine is kerbed pretty close to the centre from a damn multistory kerb which was about 25cm off the ground :(

    I'll be getting the TFSI black edition with the 10 spoke alloys which I'm not a huge fan of to be honest. I'd rather have the 5 arm alloys....always been a fan of these types ever since i had my Escort RS Turbo lol

    The rotors were the best alloys ever designed by Audi for the A3 series. At least in my opinion. But getting a set for less than £700 is almost impossible especially if you’re after 18” like I am.
