    They wont fit if they're from an 8P (which I assume they are being an S-Line spec) unless you use pcd adapters.

    depends what year;

    B5 A4 - 5x100 (upto 2004)
    B6 A4 - 5x112 (2004 onwards)
    B7 A4 - 5x112

    EDIT: if it's a cabriolet then it can only be a B6 onwards so i'd suggest you double check the PCD carefully. It is normally stamped on the rims, quite often i the centre under the plastic covers maybe if it has them.

    think they may be tight against your shocks if not touching, either way they are going to sit miles inside the arches and you will need spacers to make them sit nice

    I'm pretty sure the B5 is 5*112 as well.

    You're all right, I was wrong (apologies) the B5 is 112 too. In fact most Audis are 112 apart from the TT and 8L A3 I think.

    That's because their not really Audis, they are VWs in disguise.

    I'd put it the other way around - the old Passat (started at P/R reg) was an A4 in disguise as it had a longitudinal engine. New Passat is transverse so back to VW ways.
    Transverse = VW
    Longitudinal = Audi
    IMHO, of course!
