Just got the New alloys for the wife's S3
very happy with them BBS CI-R 19" with Michelin PS4s tyres 235 35 19"
these really suit the S3 IMO
thanks to Glenn and all at Revolution 247

looking good. I bet its WAY quieter now with PS4s on. That Pirelli rubbish ruined the car for me.
RS3 Saloon
RS7 FL best car I've owned. No faith in turbo oil screen (turbos failing) or sticking oil scraper ring causing missfires.
F10 M5 LCI, still no rear grip lol
S7 black Edition, Too big and heavy
S3 8V FL DSG 310ps, road noise is a joke
RS3 8P Rubbish
C7 RS6 Fantastic car but missed playing, too big and heavy
GTR R35 800bhp, too extreme, crazy fast though
911 Turbo Remapped. Hated it, overall rubbish
F10 M5, awesome but no rear grip
RS6 V10 700BHP crazy
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S 600bhp

when the wife got the car in November we put Wintrac on straight away and sold the Conties that came with the 18's so no had that comparison but the drive i had to get the wheels align i certainly noticed the difference in handling

their's a thing who do you use for alignment i went to turriff tyres from a recommendation from a site member but i was disappointed there was no print out of the results so confirm the setting and adjustment

I never go near TT anymore. They used to be magic but seems to be money orientated now.

Bridgend Garage in Banff (only 11 miles further for you). 4 wheel laser alignment. I got my BM set up how I requested. very good. He said I requested and out of OEM spec (I knew that) but did what I asked :thumbs:

£70 or £75 cant remember for 4 wheel. My steering wheel was just off centre (I hate that) dead straight now.

Cheers will look at them next time

Sad fact there's no one in Aberdeen area that can do a decent job or that anyone recommends
