Ok, having decided to keep the A3 for 2005 I really have set my heart on the BBS Calito 18"s.

My stealer reckons he can give me a discount on them and get them for ?470 a piece (GB?326). Tyres then would need to be bought which will no doubt set me back another ?1K. 3K all in so but they do look brilliant and will give the car a look that I'm pretty sure no other A3 in Ireland would have.

I'm just trying to see if I can beat that anywhere else.

Any ideas?

hi mate,

Edworthys.co.uk do a good tyre and wheel deal on them. I remember someone mentioning that supplier for halfords have a buying site too which seemed well cheap but i'll be damned if i can remember it.

Hope that helps

Thanks for that link - they don't seem to have the Calitos listed BUT I could get the CHs for a tad over ?1,000 and that is VERY good!

No no...just wheels. Still though, 1K for the CHs is a pretty good price although I would prefer the Calitos.

Jason - see what you can get them for and let me know? Shipping would prob be a cost factor too though.

Call me Jason one more time and we will fall out matey [V] [:D]

A 1000 Euro's for CH's is a very good price though.

Is your name not Jason!?

I'm off to the pub so will have a think about which wheel I like more including obviously the near 1K saving on the CHs over the Calitos!

Does anyone know the official BBS site that sells wheels on it? The only one I can find is more of a corporate site...
