Hi there,

Currently on holiday deciding my alloys for my S3 Saloon order but Im undecided on the alloys. Should I get the:
19" V spoke alloys -extra £375
Or
19" Star sign 5 spoke alloys - standard

Any views or thoughts?

Hey mate,

Up to you but when I went with the Black Optics package I had to get the "V" spokes in your first pic. I did not like them and ended up getting a set of 19" BBS's as shown in the image.

Wing arm alloys are very nice as they suit all variant, but as your choosing a NON black edition, standard 19"s are the most attractive and your not spending more money

Now in an X3 M40i And a Yaris GR-Four
Standard twin spoke star design. Think they are the last good looking alloy Audi did. All down hill from there.

When I ordered my S3 Saloon, the saleswoman (for some unknown reason) changed the wheels to the Arm wing design wheels, which look like they belong on a TDI. Luckily I spotted it on the order confirmation. Got her to change them back to standard. This then prompted Audi to put the build-date back weeks. Went off it with her. Her excuse was they were the upgraded wheels, so she specced them. Upgraded my @rse. Look *****.

Luckily a week later, Audi adjusted the build week back to original.

I've got the V-spokes on mine, but I agree, the wing arms look awesome aswell. I think the V-spokes do look more aggressive and give a better 'stance'. But on a non BE, I'd probably have stuck with the wing arms.

Standard 100%. The V Spoke aren't very S like. You can get them on the A4, TT and A1.

Ironically, very similar to the RS4 alloys mind... I tend to think of them to be more 'RS' than 'S' wheels.

Standard wheels IMO!

I didn't like them on photos much, but had a long term loan with those wheels and they are absolutely stunning and a pretty complex/unusual design.

Ah... I got confused, I thought we were talking about these ones?

V-Spokes for me!

The problem with the standard is exactly that - they're standard and thus 90% of S3s have them.

Personally I like them all, I just felt when I ordered mine that the standard ones set it off better.
