    After alot of searching to find some alloys i liked which wasn't Audi replicas,nice as they are but i wanted something different i finally got these.Cheap as chips and surprisingly they are lighter than the 18's.Which was nice.I will get some better pics when it stops pi55ing it down.

    Looks a lot better, Im not a big fan of those Nuvolari wheels whatever they are called anyway they look too 'chunky'. Peugeot have got the same design on the new 307's.

    The front spoiler looks a lot better too with the grills in black.

    By the way did you get the grey plastic bits at the bottom of your doors sprayed? If so how did you do it??

    Cheers

    The back is lower than it looks in the picture,just come off the jack.Its weird though the back is higher than the front and ive tried two different sets of springs with the koni shocks and both was the same.:think:

    Might be a daft question but could the back be higher due to the RS4 RARB.I put it on at the same time as the suspension???I originally thought it was the weight of the diesel engine but both sets of springs are designed for tdi.Any one else had this problem?

    Thank you silver75.Just looked at coilovers,expensive.I only want to bring the back down about 10-15mm.Im really happy with the handling of the koni's,just wish it was level.Might just get some different springs.What are people on here using on their TDI'S?

    They look great! I was thinking of getting the Mandrus Mellinium wheels....are these the same wheels? What offset and width are the wheels?
