    It's a pet hate of mine N8, can't stand other manufacturer wheels on differet cars, always thought it looked cack, biggest one for me is Bentley wheels, so amazingly chavtastic!

    VW wheels are ok though of course, you manage to pull it off somehow;)

    (old fart post coming and flame suit on)

    I hear you loud and clear Mr Noir, spot on.
    Thought I was the only one.

    There are loads of cool aftermarket rims designed to fit properly, dont unerstand the need to make other manufacturers OEM wheels fit:noway:.

    If the rim looks right and has the respective VAG centre cap then just maybe.

    The ones that shout "I am a blatantly wheel from another marque" is cack IMO.

    Not one of the best styling influences to come from the Euro scene. Along with the `rat look`. Loada *****.

    Cheers
    Paul:icon_thumright:

    Couldn't agree more Paul, old men indeed! hehe.


    "Following last weeks re-creation of Tracey Island and the Advent Candle we showed you at Christmas, this week we are going to modify an Audi S3" "Now the first thing to do is change the wheels, normally we'd say use some quality aftermarket examples from BBS, but you can of course use anything you can find under the kitchen sink, we know that Bentley, Porsche and Lamborghini will all fit...but remember you must have the permission of a responsible adult before you attempt to do this"

    Are they 5 x 112 or are they genuine Porsche wheels?

    -Cuz the P-car wheels I have are all 5 x 130mm...

    I'll take 'em for my Porsche if they don't fit! ;)

    :laugh: In my personal opinion, I don't think the Bentley wheels are chav at all, they are still VAG, and from the classiest part from VAG, they look classy, and on the right car/colour/stance, they work.....so you get the thumbs up from me Jules :arco:
