Bought some new wheels so washed the car and fitted. Need some 15mm spacers for rear.
What do you think? Never seen an S3 with these. Note car might also be sadly up for sale.

Very nice. Agree on the spacers.

Why did you buy new wheels for it if your selling it?

Im trying to rasie money for my bike racing. Currently trying to sell my road bike but if I get no joy with that the car might go for soemthing cheaper.
The MTM reps were cool I just fancied something different. I wasnt sure at first but they are kinda growing on me.

Are they ABT wheels?

Look good mate, certainly not common. But it does look like it needs some rear spacers.

Abt A24 and there in no way cheap. Very good quality wheel. I picked them up 2nd hand but virtually new. Im glad that most folk dont really like them as I like having something slightly different from the norm.

Much prefer the MTM reps. Not too keen on those TBH.

By the way, I keep seeing you on the Kingswells dualer - usually going the other way.

Same here...for me, not so much!

I preferred the old wheels...saw you a few times in Abz (posing on Union St, as it happens) and the car looked hard as nails on the old wheels...your new ones are missing something...

Still..it's your car...and as long as you are chuffed with them.
They'll probably look better with the spacers on.

Hey I dont pose, my flat is at the top of Onion St so its on my way home. Old wheels were great and looked hard as nails but Im really liking these. To start with I wasnt sure but now I like. It looks a completely different car and different from the ususl RS4, RS6, BBS. Chris I only just saw you last night.

Yeah, I know.
On your way home from posing up and down Union St...

I also spotted you 10 mins later heading down Holburn St...so I deduced the trip to the bottom of Union St and back was an un-necessary journey along the lines of a pose. Perhaps I was mistaken... :haha:

I can assure you not...
I was dropping the other half off on Union St, and then headed to B&Q...
I was undercover...in her Fiesta.
If I were to choose someone to stalk in Aberdeen...rest assured, it would not be you!

Felt a real twinge when I saw those pics :(

It had 18mm spacing on the rear Graeme, put those back on and it would look a lot better?

Maybe if they were anthracite it would look the dogs?

Gah, missing the old girl now :(

My names not Roddy!! Probably checking the surf down the beach for my mate, honestly.
Dont worry Stewart I will put spacers on the back. Need new bolts though.

Might be sadly up for sale though if I cannot get my road bike sold.
