    need help

    Hi my name is adam and im picking my a1 s line up this week,
    Im looking into getting different alloys, the ones im looking at are 18" r8 replicas, what im wondering is do i need to up-rate anything since its 17" alloys standard? (if that makes sense haha)

    ok thats perfect, just wanting to make sure everything goes to plan, it will be my first audi and wanting to make it look good and do things right, im also looking to lower it, ive seen that h&r 35mm springs are pretty good but since im upgrading to 18's will i need to do anything, like spacers or anything like that?

    Spacers will depend on the ET of the alloys you purchase.

    Personally I think 19's would be too big on an A1, it would look odd.

    Search under goggle and take from there, the choice of manufacture and type will be mind blowing the cost will be up o you and some come with tyre choice.

    They are a customer of ours, so buy from us. I've not had to buy from them. They appear very up-front. Do Larkspeed offer anything?
