    My A4 has the sports package, is it already a little bit lower than without? I am planning on purchasing some 18's with 225/40/18. Will the car look too high if I don't mess with the suspension? I don't want to have to deal withwith scraping every where I go with a lowered car. Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

    Here are my 225/40/18's on standard sports suspension. I don't think it looks like an off roader.

    Lowered; no hard ride, no chaffage, no fuss.

    Thanks for the respond. Both of your cars look awesome! What I can see is I can probably get by without lowering it right away! I can see both of you has the same wheels, are those the 18" RS replicas made in Italy? What do you think of their quality? I am planning on getting a set of used Mille Emotions. What do you think?

    BTW, Andy and kasper, just my .02 cents but I don't think the standard sport suspension looks bad at all with the 18's I actually like it. It looks a whole lot better than stock!
