    New B/E Alloys.

    If there is anyone on here that lives in and around Doncaster, you may not the area im talking about. Been through a place called Carcraft of Adwick, and in this area there is what i would call some sort of Stogeage park full of Car Transporters obviously waiting to be delivered. There are numerous makes and models but today i happened to see 2 full of Audis/VW's... to cut this long story short, i decided to pull up and have a nosey.. I noticed a few B/Editions, but with different Alloys.. they were 5 spoke, Black (Gloss finish) but with some Silver... i know that sounds vague, but they were on all the B/Editions and i just wondered if there was a change that no one knew about.

    As above, sounds like the standard Black Edition alloys to me but there is also a optional 18" alloy that replaced the split rims....

    Maybe they arent then!

    The black Audi centers look like the ones you get with reps, originals always seem to have grey centers these days.

    By all accounts these are a fitment on a new special edition, can't remember what it's called though, dynamic or something similar. BEs will continue to have 5 spoke "rotors"
