    Check out the Rims sticky thread at the top of the page = there are plenty of ideas on there for what alloys will suit

    I currently have my eye on these 18" RS6 replicas for my 3dr TDi 140 Sport. You can upgrade the tyre package if you like and they'll reply to any e-mail enquiries pretty quickly.

    Personally, I would keep those rims on the SB - look sweet when lowered!

    I personally think those wheels look great on your car. Compliments it well, like aristides stated.

    take your 500 Buy some decent rubber to replace the bald tyres(90-120a corner), Some lowering spings (140-180) and some spacers (10mm front, 12mm rear ??) those rims have quite high offset, Car will look and handle looooooooooads better

    i know this might be a silly question but do your alloys in the first post pic have a lip on it? or is it just the edge of the alloy?

    I still don`t get it

    Change some lovely genuine BBS rims, and not even bother going for genuine again?

    I think you will regret buying them, the polished finish will flake off in a few months you'll see!
