    If you look in the post pics of your car thread at the top of this page you'll see a lot of slines.

    The ride height between the 2 is only marginal.

    Are there any figure anywhere stating just what the ride heights are?

    Also MB where did you get your RS4's from?

    So you'd imagine the Sport is 10mm lower then - somewhere in between?!?!

    Do you think the Sport would look odd or stupid on 18's?

    I bought my RS4's from a place in southampton - South Coast Wheels. Been dealing with them for years.

    10mm on a standard ride height is hardly going to be noticeable. So to answer your question no I think a sport with RS6's will look fine.

    They seem to be pretty good prices, did they do you a deal with tyres?

    Does anyone know the type of tyre you get on the rs4's from Rochford? Or which tyre would you choose from the upgrade tyres from the list shown on this website:

    http://www.rochfordtyres.co.uk/produ...istory=related

    Would I also be right to assume that the size should be 18” 5x112 et45?? I don't want any rubbing!

    Also my final question, how is your fixed cost maintenance effected by the change of your wheel size? Do you have to inform Audi UK or?
