    New wheels

    I had started to get a bit bored of my A4, so rather than change it, I;ve decided to spend a wee bit of money on it, getting it to a standard I'm happy with.

    First up - new wheels






    Excuse my rubbish photography skills.

    I'm currently in the middle of fitting two new wheel bearings an B5 spring cups, then friday its in for a decat and remap

    Really like that. The car colour and wheel colour really sets it off.

    Are they 19" or 18"

    Very nice and wheels suit the colour....I am stuck between this design and the new sline turbines for mine in 18"

    They're 19". I think 18" might look a bit small

    That was with tyres. They're not the best of tyres tbh but they do the job for now. I was just in the right place at the right time

    Decided I may as well keep my updates in one thread.

    Last week saw me fitting 2 new wheel bearings and a set of B5 spring cups. The height is much better now. Will get some decent pictures later.

    I also had the car in for a decat pipe and a map.



    Turns out my car has a K03s. I'd always assumed it was a k03, so it was a pretty impressive gain.

    Couple of hours after the de-cat and map, my exhaust started to blow, and I had noticed that my front suspension arms were pretty tired, so next week its booked in for the rest of the system, and an overhaul of the front suspension.

    The bank balance, and the misses are loving me at the minute

    They slide over the front shocks and are the base to the suspension spring to sit on. B5 versions on a B6 makes the front lower 10 to 15mm as the rears of a B6 tend to sit lower than the front

    Pretty much. Depending on the condition of your shocks, you might need to wire brish them a bit to make it easy to slide off.

    Euro sell them for a fiver a piece. I couldn;t get them from there in time though, so I definitely didn't buy a set of B5 shocks, remove the cups, then return them with a set of B6 cups fitted to them.
