    is it ok to keep my 2009 a4 b8 on axle stands for a week while my wheels go for a refurb?
    ive read somewhere that all the weight of the engine etc puts alot of load on the front(not good may get gaps between door/wing etc?

    You've put 'axle stands', which I presume you have more than one, it will be fine.

    Unless the ground is uneven, it will be 100% fine!

    Can the refurbishing firm not lend you a set of wheels?

    When I had my car on axle stands for a week, I came back to find both my rear shocks had leaked thier oil.
    That was a 2001 Ibiza Cupra R on Billstien shocks - was abit miffed to say the leased as It was on axle stands as I had just spent the best part on £1500 uprating other bits.
