    is it 20" wheels too? they look bigger..

    when the arches are flared is it possible for you to lower it more on coils, even tho you got 8.5x19 et45 rim?

    Does the flaring of the arches itself make the car look a bit lower or does it look the same?

    I mean the picture on the right could have been on h&r springs with flared arches and 20" thats why it looks its so much lower?

    i dont think u should lower it even if you did have wider arches, its looks so nice with the H&R's a nice clean gap around the wheel, n the photoshop work shows how good it would look, mirrors go nicely with it! could do with some more beefier skirts, doesnt look low enough compared to the front!

    Hey, so if I flare the arches, there'll be less chance of rubbing?

    Yeah I know, but who knows with full car right? might as well be safe,

    anyway is this what we're talking about?



    Cause I dont think you can get it as flared as you got 10blazin, I've heard they flare from millimeters to 1.5cm MAXIMUM.. am i right?

    yea but if you have the money, you are able to get the panes re shaped, all they do is put the....... stuff on the you to fill in major scratches/small dents (cant remember what its called) it will add weight to the car but hey, it will look lovely!

    Nice chopping, thats the look I want for the rears as the fronts are fine, just want a wider stance tbh like when I stuck my 20mm spacers on from my S4, looked lovely & similar stance to the rocco

    This pile of scrap shown above wouldnt do anything,we had one at old work there designed to roll the lip on single skinned panels(which no cars are now days) wouldnt do frt wings and just about all rears are double or trebled skin ie inner and outer arch but some have an reinforcer also

    Are you sure they're real RS4 wheels? They look just that bit too shiny to me.

    Yeah, he's stretched the tyres onto the rims, I'm still not convinced they're genuine though.

    I agree - plus I've seen someone try and fit genuine RS4 wheels to an S3 before and no amount arch rolling was going to get those wheels on the car to be quite honest.

    They look a bit like the velocity motoring's V708 aka RS4 rep. One of the best reps I have seen.

    You can get 20mm wider flared arches from OSIR design. Comes with Vent as well. I personally dont like the vents but the wider stance do make it look meaner!!

    I think you'd need to get the extensions that go over the bumpers blended in somehow or it would look pants as it does in the the link hotbox provided (sorry hotbox ) I prefer how it looks in your mock up above

    Ok... I need to lay of the coffee, I meant the bits from the arch that extends onto the bumper... but obviously you guys were not liking these bits (which is good news cause they suck!)

    Yes the arches definitely look great, still no reply from the producers blazin?

    What else you got planned for your motor now mate? You have got pretty much everything else, I reckon you need a mesh grill lol... I like the oettinger one myself!

    btw hotbox that siggy of yours has put a smile on my face more than once today! nice1
