Hello, I have a 2005 A3 TFSI Quattro and have just purchased a set of genuine 18" S-Line alloys....my car currently has 17" wheels, will I need to have the wheels re-aligned when the 18's are fitted??...
And make sure they use the correct settings/measurements for your model/trim level... i.e. specifically 'Standard', 'Sport', 's-line', etc etc.
They chose the wrong one for mine and it caused heavier steering and pulling to one side.
yes its correct mate for setting it up to manufacturers spec
that's what the dealer has told him and the dealer is correct apart form setting it up for 18's which they should not have to do
they should only set it up for the build data and pr code
if you wish to alter it then you can but that's factory instruction given to me when altering Q7 wheels and ride height
this also applies in this case
i wont argue as you obviously have your own idea and that's fine but the dealer has to work to manufacturers settings and that's it as there is no alternative adjustment to refer to or as I would do set it as close to nearest a3 with 18's
i did this with mine going from 16's and standard suspension to 18's and 40mm drop
i set the camber etc to sline and 10,000 miles without any wear
