The 8V Audi S3 offers all the fun of the ridiculous AWD Mk 7 VW Golf R in a package that you can look respectable driving daily, but the stock wheels are kind of vanilla, souring the otherwise awesome look of the car. That’s what drove LC, the owner of this Audi S3 to reach out to Sr Mod Expert Alan about a set of wheels for their 8V Audi S3.
LC was after something very specific when he was shopping for wheels, and so here in his own words is LC’s review of his experience working with Alan.
“I’m the owner of a 2015 Audi S3 and I had been wanting wider wheels for my S3 for a while. I saw that some other owners installed 19×9.5 wheels and I loved the concave look. Avant Garde seemed to be one of the few manufacturers that offered the proper offset for my car.”
“I shopped around and saw they were out of stock at most places. I then chatted with Alan Wei over on the ModBargains site. We looked at the Avant Garde M590 wheels first, but ModBargains was also out of stock on those wheels. Instead of waiting a month for them to come back in stock I asked about the Avant Garde M580s. Alan called around and was able to located the last full set of M580s that I wanted. He was also able to give me a price match to another online vendor.”
“The buying process was very smooth and easy. The packaging of the wheels I received from ModBargains is by far the best packaging job I’ve seen for any set of wheels I’ve ever ordered.”
“To put that into perspective, I’ve ordered other wheels before and 2 out of the 5 sets had at least 1 wheels damaged by the shipping company. Another time 1 wheel was cosmetically damaged, but not enough to warrant replacement.
Just the packing material for all 4 wheels weighed in at 30lbs total, and I can appreciate the extra effort put in by their shipping dept. I would have no problems ordering wheels again from ModBargains.”
“The fact that the wheels look amazing was just icing on the cake. I love the concavity! Thanks again Alan and ModBargains.”
We’d have to agree with LC, the concavity of the M580 looks incredible on the S3. We can only say so much about what we do here, so take LC’s word for it, and our guys like Alan always go out of their way to find solutions for our customers. Check out the rest of the gallery below.
