    Alloy wheels change....

    My last car was a bora with 18" rs6's lowered on eibachs and konis and was quite a harsh ride.Ive had my audi avant a couple of weeks now and feel a whel change on my plan list 'but' i dont want to lose the comfort so at the moment it has 16" alloys on and thinking about some 18" but how much comfort will be lost with 18's?I dont plan on lowering it.

    Any info will be appreciated.

    Steve

    Se and sports have different suspension set ups out of the factory. The sport has slightly lower springs and are slightly firmer for better handling over the se's.

    Would those 19" BBS LM reps happen to be mine?? In the classified section? In that case they will be absolutely fine on your standard se suspension!
