    They look very familair. Had a quick google but couldn’t see but I feel like they’ve been on a VW Golf’ recently.

    No likely personally. Also, another design that goes “forwards” on one side of the car and “backwards” on the other.

    Damn I would be p!ssed as a RS5 owner if my stock wheels were also used on the A3 :boxing: But maybe that's just me...

    Nasty looking wheels.

    And, yes, unless they’re “handed” they’ll look even worse on the other side. (Unless it’s reversing.lol)

    Remember the Xr3i “dogleg” alloys from back in the day? Same thing. Used to do my OCD bulb in! Haha

    As an aside, a friend of mine has a B*W i3, and it has 4 completely different alloys! The wheels are both “handed” and also it has different size front and rears!

    Annoying that they're only on the saloon

    It’s something that annoyed me when I got my S5 with the Rotor wheels on.
    Audi then put them on numerous models and specs right across the entire range!
    Rotors were ‘handed’ too but a bit less noticeable.

    Yup ! They are the same design wheels (or very very similar) to a MK7 Golf that sits on a driveway round the corner from me.

    Audi used to be the best at Alloy wheel design. In recent years, they've been some of the worst. The RS3 Saloon wheels are awful. So are the recent S/RS4 & 5 wheels.

    Their exterior design has taken a backward step (for me) in recent years too. All Boxy and straight lines everywhere. There is not one Audi currently on sale today, apart from the A3 Saloon, that I think is actually a good looking car. Maybe the TT is better now than previous versions, but all the rest are worse looking.

    Went to drop my car off at the dealership and saw a new A3 Saloon Black edition with these wheels on. Guessing they're now the standard wheels for the black edition 20181030_080452.jpg

    Not sure if they suit the car / colour ... I do quite like the alloys though. Wonder how RS5 owners feel about it.

    I'm sure a black or grey car would suit the wheels better. I can imagine RS5 owners are upset

    I doubt they are TBH. They're an awful wheel design, and probably only ticked on the option box as they are bigger than standard (which look awful too)

    Besides, anyone with any kind of recent RS model will be used to seeing 1.6TDI's running around on the Rota's

    Yeah the rotors have been done to death now and you see them everywhere on all sorts of cars and all sizes.
    They seem to make small tweaks to the design now and again. Current s3 BE they embossed Quattro on the wheel between the spokes otherwise they are rotors. Now they paint bits here and there but it still looks like a rotor(in this case not paint bits)
