      What's your VAG-COM scan results show in terms of fault codes?

      Then you've done the research and have armed yourself with knowledge.
      Wheel choice, fitment, and execution are all subjective - pick a look you like and roll with it.

      If you're hard pressed on having the wheel backwards compatible with a MK3, you're not looking past anything bigger than a 17" wheel.
