    get it done from an Audi Approved bodyshop. budget around 60 a corner.

    also might help if you put up a pic/described which wheels you're referring to

    the S-Line came with loads of different wheels depending on year etc.

    Surely any creditable alloy wheel place could do this? No need for an audi approved body shop?

    stay away from audi approved, i would probably pay around 250 for a decent job. I have been doing mine myself, the last few times.

    if you wanna save your money give it a blast yourself, Plenty of tips on the internet and worked out at about 50 to do mine
    now : A3 2.0 TDI, ST-3 remap, coilovers, matte black rs6 alloys

    800 spent on my car in a week, is that excessive? B***ocks is it

    there's no NEED, but they don't cost any more, and you know they'll do your wheel to a creditable standard. not only that but they'll use Audi's own paint code. doesn't seem like an unreasonable thing to do...

    Seems like sound advice to me, especially for 60 a wheel which isn't over priced. I assume there would be some form of warranty too if it's Audi Approved?

    If not, and you're (The OP) anywhere near Kent then Lepsons are a very reputable company, that I've used myself in the past to do a set of split rims that many wheel refurbers won't normally touch.
