Although I adore my new Q3, I am not a fan of the wheels it comes with. Anybody know if these gorgeous A6 wheels would fit the Q3?

Your wheels are 8.5x19 ET 43 wheels and these you like are I believe 8.5x19 ET45 wheels (P/N : 4G0 601 025 BG @$495 each) - I think they would easily fit and cause no problems. Talk with your dealer and see if they'd be willing to swap with an A6 customer or even a new car. Confirm tire size though - you have 255/40 R19s and I'm not sure what the A6 has on those wheels but I think may be 255/35 R19s - not a big difference, but you should stick with your tire/wheel OD for best results and speedometer/odometer readings ...

YOU ARE SO SMART!! :x
I did inquire about this in the very beginning, hoping they could make the swap during the build. I was told in no uncertain terms: NOOOO. Apparently Audi is a stickler about standard equipment. I was told I'm on my own for that swap. I guess it's worth asking the Parts dept. with my son being a dealership employee, I should actually get a decent discount, and $495 is less than what I expected.
Thanks for the info!

You should be able to get them for about $370 each - not really that bad ...

Finally got it installed!

Guy working on it did a great job with the fenders so no clips broke; He did however use automotive double sided tapes to secure the fender after putting the bumper together because the force of pulling on it may have bent the fenders a bit.

I provided a high temp. spray can and he sprayed the bumper reinforcement with it. It took about 3 hours of labor.

Still waiting for my permanent plates to come in, until then I will leave the temp. plate off.

So basically the difference between the two grilles is that the regular model one has vertical lines and the RS version has a kind of fishnet mesh instead.
