    Looks the nuts mate! Love the mtm's, there is a black rs4 in my town that wears 19" silver mtm's and it looks awesome.

    What's the rear wiper off of mate? Liking that a lot, looks a lot more modern.

    Looks good. The MTMs go well on an S3, and at their best in black!



    Where's your centre caps?

    Thats because its too low. If you raise it up a bit it will clear it...and your sump will thank you.

    That S3 looks decent. I have no experience but that MUST ride very solid with those tyres and barely any suspension travel... so what you are saying by running them is that you would prefer to look good rather than be comfortable?!?! But the car is yellow so you obviously aren't bothered about looks... I jest I jest ;-)
    The intercooler and piping on show is awesome, as is the splitter.
    Very nice car!!

    Looks really nice Jim. The jury was out on those wheels a while ago for me but they kind of grew on me, then I saw them on your car and it convinced me they look ******!! - The Dogs ****** that is, not *****! LOL Car's coming on nicely now mate, although it does look a bit TOO low :)

    Love the wheels - black on lighter coloured cars look mint in my opinion (and yes, I am biased!! ) I'd go without the caps tbh - looks "meaner" - provided that wouldn't be detremental of course.

    Car does look a tad on the low side!! - being that low I'd be concerned about the sump plus with the lower grills missing, are you not worried about damaging your IC?

    Jim i think the centre caps look good and go very well! Hmm MTM alloys, i do like them alot! Car looks really good with those spacers on, centre caps and the dice. The alloys stand out a bit more now due to the centre caps being yellow.

    You're not driving it properly then! Those wheels and tyres, with spacers, will rub frequently when driven hard. Mine used to do it with higher suspension and only 10mm spacers. Heh, and little difference to your standard wheels? Not unless you have very straight, smooth roads down that way.
