Not sure really. I put RS3 19's on my car as the I liked the Black Edition rotors but the S3's 18" rotors looked too small, not because I wanted people to think it was an RS3. It just looked better proportioned. I stopped at that as I wanted the car to retain it's character. It's not trying to be something it's not, and with the power hike it had been gifted I'd rather it performed like an RS3 and looked like an S3 rather than looked like an RS3 and performed like an S3!
Hi Warren, it's Will, a friend of Marios! Your S3 was one of the cleanest S3s I have seen, and I have seen a fair few about!
In my opinion, I don't really see the point in bolting RS body parts on none RS vehicles even if it is of the S series! Theres a car that gets toted around the internet which belonged to a guy called adlucks3 (instagram name). Matte blue DSG S3 with the RS3 front on it. For a while I wanted to do that to an S3 until i realised that one day I would pull up next to an RS3 and I would know it just wasn't the real thing! Anyway, just my opinion!
Hi Will, long time no see chap. Mario told me about you getting an RS3 when I was out with him in his TTRS a couple of weekends back (what a journey that was!). Isn't time you got some pics up of your new motor chap ;-)
I agree with you. If you want the RS look buy the RS. By the time you've spent the money speccing the car up, the cost of doing it and the extra depreciation hit you'll take will mean you might just have well have bought a real one. Wheels are the only place I'd spend any significant cash cosmetically as they can make or break the look of a car, the rest of the cash will go on improving the handling / performance.
