    Thumbs up Rotors or 5 Segments?

    I've ordered a new avant BE in Daytona and I don't know if I've made a mistake, I've gone for the 5 segments as they'll be easier to refurb if the Mrs goes near a curb.

    I prefer the look of the rotors, so my head is arguing with my heart.

    Whats your fav?

    Rotors are awesome and make a BE in my opinion! But I am biased

    Both nice, I'm biased though and stuck with the rotors and they do look great and are easy to clean, it's also me that normally curbs ours!!

    Ah you can't beat either. Had both, both in a 20", but Rotors pip it.

    Rotors for me I'm afraid. I don't even like the five segments on the RS6! :S

    Rotors or 5 Segments?

    I wouldn't have thought changing the wheels would change the build date. I added interior light pack and changed the colour and it didn't make any difference.

    Don't do it, Don't change them!!

    Rotors are common and on most Audi's at the moment.

    Stay with the Segments and be different.

    I had segments on my A6 S-line. Horrible to clean, however not as common as rotors are becoming...

    RS6s (Segments as you are calling them) are nice as well, my old ones here:

    Rotors or 5 Segments?

    N8, where did you sort your Lamborghini front brakes! Half looking at something and only found forge and brembo options so far...

    5 segs are a much nicer wheel imo, the rotors, for me, just look too aftermarket, and if im honest a bit on the tacky side tbh.They wont age well, and there will be a lot of knock offs.
