    Firstly, ill introduce myself as im new to this section.

    My name is Dan, im 24 and from Leicester.

    I used to own this:-

    but I got offered £2,000 for the wheels which I couldnt turn down, and then I lost the love so sold up.

    I knew it had to be another Audi, and wanted a B7 Avant, whilst looking for one I came across this, listed incorrectly I took a liking too it.

    2005 Dolphin Grey A4 Saloon 2.0 TDi. With only 1 previous owner and 55,000 on the clock I couldnt turn it down.

    It is in immaculate condition, except a large stone chip on the lower splitter, which I can live with.

    The plan was always to get some Bentley Monoblocks and slam it hard on coilovers.

    I swap cars too often and appreciate my money too much to ***** 3-4k on decent air-ride.

    I deal in wheels on a weekly basis, mainly Bentleys and when this set came up, I couldnt say no.

    [​IMG]

    Im a bit of a perfectionist, and slightly sad/anal so the first thing I did with these was remove the tyres and start the cleaning...

    [​IMG]

    as you can see, a crazy amount of tar welded to the backs of them!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the backs came up really nice...

    [​IMG]

    the fronts however, needed some attention due to water getting behind the laquer.

    [​IMG]

    The reason I had to have these particular ones is because its rare to find a set with NO kerbing on them, and my plan was always to mirror polish them.

    So thats what I did...

    The marks you can see on the painted areas are just polishing compound, which I removed with clay and polish a few days later...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Whilst this was happening, the coilovers were being fitted...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and the wheels went on very shortly after, and thats where I stand today.

    Thanks for reading. ♥

    I polished my exhaust tips too, they only stay like that for a day though!
