    great thanks

    I've emailed them for a price

    I'm sure S4 replicas where widely available at one time for not too much money ?

    Might consider getting 5x100 to 5x112 adapters otherwise if possible..

    ok, they are looking into a price for me now. They dont have them in stock but mentioned they are made in Italy which I think is a bonus instead of China..

    might get a discount if a bunch of us order together, let me know how many people are interested and Ill ask for a group buy discount price

    Itailian replica wheels are made in china/asia.

    You can get the wheel manufacturer to cast "Made on the moon" into them if you buy enough.

    I know some replica wheels come from Italy and are sold as Italian but thats where the connection ends. Manufacturing is done in Asia.

    Without tyres?

    See this is why i didn't buy them, you can buy better looking wheels for the same price or less!

    Lol! If you want them bad enough, 600 is worth it! They are not exactly common, and the seller probably knows it, plus along with the value of sterling dropping and VAT going up, tuning parts are always going to be a bit more expensive these days.

    Thing is folks, the S4 rims are so much more rare than something like RS4 wheels or CH/LM reps.

    Sure, they're not as obviously cool looking, but the main attraction for me is that they're so OEM+ looking.

    When theyre dirty my car looks 100% normal to those around me, yet when it's cleaned and polished it looks really awesome

    I know what you mean Prawn. Very smart with a standard look! I would still buy a set of these if only they were at a cheaper price though.

    You have obviously started the thread, as they are hard to source, not that they are avialable, you are saying they are too expensive! lol 600 squid = bargain for you!
