    New (yes more) plans for the car..

    Hey all..

    Some people are into that teaser thread stuff but I'd rather talk about it, cant help myself!! lol..

    Anyways planning on changing the wheels, and with it the style of the car really, going for more of a 'euro' look with these..



    Look pretty nice wheels, managed to source a set of 4 front wheels so fitment shouldnt be TOO much of a pain, the offset is pretty low so I may have to play around with the arches a bit more!

    Anyways so that I can run these wheels im going to have to go super low so I have arranged a coilover kit from H&R that should give me the lowering capabilities that im after..

    As a result im selling the Speedlines and the KW V1's..

    The coilovers have been on the car for only a couple of thousand miles, obviously they are in perfect condition.. Really pleased with them, only reason for changing is that they dont go low enough for what im after..

    This is how low they go.. (pretty low I know.. but im going a bit extreme this time)



    Wheels are in perfect condition, powdercoated black with brand new Yokohama Parada Spec 2's (225/40/18)..





    Available with or without white lip..

    (See sig for details on parts for sale)

    On top of that..

    Im planning on playing around with the front grille again as I have just noticed a huge chip out of the surround, must be from a stone!!

    Possibly experiment with different colour wing mirrors and Front&Rear diffusers.. Go with a very subtle tint on the front two windows, just to blend in the super dark Audi option rears and finally some fancy 6500k PIAA D2S HID's and 6500k LED sidelight bulbs..

    So its going to look fairly different really, hopefully all done in time for the Audi-Driver event on the 11th October!!

    Jonny

    Sorry mate, but IMO (and this is just my opinion) I really am not feeling those wheels. Just loved your motor mate, but at the end of the day it's what you like, so that's all that matters..
    And as for adding a 100+kgs to your car.. Are you mad?

    Lol there not really that heavy!!

    Think they are 12kg's each so it will add roughly 10kg's to the overall weight of the car, decided im turning it into a pose machine now lol..

    So running super low etc..

    We'll see, ill probably change my mind in a few weeks and have them for sale

    Lol ok..

    The cars performance will hardly be affected by the wheels, so its still going to go the same, just a fast pose machine.. if thats ok?

    Not my cup of tea Jonny, I prefer the motorsport look rather than Sunset Boulevard. But each to their own and they aren't exactly ugly wheels.

    Is the white edge on your current alloys painted on or tape. Either way how did you do this and get it looking that good?

    They are the BBS CH limited edition wheel which come like that from factory - I think you can spec what colour you want them to be!

    Boydie, no was referring to Jonny's current Speedlines. However it is the Black CH that I am ordering that I want a white line too. They come with a stainless steel lip as standard but wanted a more pronounced white line, and if I can I'd prefer to use tape so that it can be removed or colour changed. White to red etc. How easy is it to apply the tape in a perfect circle?
