    Ben Lucas, I tried to reply to your pm, but you need to change your settings so you can recieve private messages....I have left you a visitor message insted. I failed to mention that you will also need adapters to make the Porsche wheels fit. You need 5*112(audi) to 5*130(porsche) adapters. Be aware this will alter your pcd as the adapters in essence, are spacers. You can get four decent ones for around the 150 mark. Try Venom motorsports. Good luck with your search pal.

    Hello Craig. They have been fitted since I got them. Let me explain. They are 4 fronts. The guy I got them off had them on a VW. He bought 4 fronts from the dealership about 5-6 years ago (so he reckons). At first I thought they were the Mille Miglia reps, but on cleaning them up (they were caked in carbon and sh1t when I got them) it emerged that they were genuine Porsche alloys. I phoned the guy I got them off (ebay) and he confirmed that indeed he had bought them from the stealers. I also phoned Porsche and confirmed the part number with them. I am very lucky really, as the chances of coming by 4 rears in a oner is remote at best. I had been searching for ages though......I havent taken any fresh pics as I have given up taking phots with my ipone (whats the point they are rubbish!), however you can just about make out the rear in this phot I took a while ago.......
