    Correct, they are aluminium anodised.
    I was going to put the OEM RS3 rings on but I wanted to keep the chrome outer.

    Dropped it in for its oil change and to get the soundaktor vibration looked at, still haven't got it back yet but have this parked outside. It's a tad dirty but is being by used by a friend of mine who works at the dealership. Not sure how she's getting home if I don't get mine back today lol

    Prefer the Saloon shape myself...its a classic design.....Avant too long unless you bulk it oot with RS wheel arches....it adds a bit Squatness to it.....l see Audi has made a one of RS6 Saloon......maybe they'll introduce it as production model in the new one? to compete with AMG.....who right now are whiping Audi's ***.....big time.....from the medium sized class and upwards

    Not bad tbh, S3 has a shorter ratio steering rack so it feels a bit strange around corners/roundabouts in comparison. Other than than, it's nice and smooth lacks power a touch although is fine for round town. Tech is a bit old now though after being out for so long! I'm a fan of the A6 in Avant form though.

    Always found it odd that Audi no longer make saloon RS4 and RS6’s to compete with M3/5. Almost like it’s a gentleman’s agreement.

    Although i suppose the RS3 saloon is now in place and RS5 has been for a while.

    I’d love an M3, the saloon looks so much better than the 4 to me.

    Yeah the saloon M3 has a shorter overhang at the rear ergo it looks so much better, but both cars drive the same with teeth shattering suspension lol

    I've thought for a long time that some of the Audi 4's and 6's look better in Avant form than the Saloon.

    A4 looks better in Avant form but to be honest l don't think Audi could have designed the A4 to look anymore bland if they tried

    Well the vibration is still there even after a new sound actuator although I'm sure I can live with it.

    Plus point is the oil change was 'only' £163.22

    What did you use to clean them, mine are in desperate need of a clean after only 600 miles on the clock. Tried just giving them a wipe but not shifted the worst bits

    I used Brasso when I owned my A3 saloon, which worked a treat, though I did have to clean them every couple of weeks.

    I hope you didn't use one of these metallic scourers, 'cos these will certainly scratch the tailpipes, and the soot will then attack the underneath surface causing corrosion!

    Haha, I've used very fine steel wool which I suppose is better than those kitchen things. They are corroded anyway as probably never cleaned up until I bought the car.. So what do I have to loose!
    Look good from a distance at least ;)
