    New wheels potentially sorted but need to check if the ET43 offset will be ok, thought ET35 was preferred. Cheers

    Id say they would fit but probably need 10mm spacers all round to clear the brake calipers !!

    i know B5QUAT had LM reps with ET42 and they went on, but when he come to fit the 345/300mm brakes he had to get spacers iirc !!

    My B7 S-Line/DTM mulitspoke wheels are ET42 and I had to get spacers to clear the standard S4 front calipers

    Well following a discussion with the supplier they said their books state ET43-ET35 fit. They said no refunds if they foul anything non standard. They didn't seem too pleased when I pointed out that as I had paid in full over the phone for the items the distance selling laws apply and technically as long as I haven't damaged them I can return them for a refund without even needing a reason.

    Anyway, hoping we'll have no bother and they'll arrive tomorrow.
