    Who cares if they're wheels from a different manufacturer, I'm sure we're all grown up enough to decide what looks good on our car, rather than being spoon fed whatever comes out with 4 rings on it ;)

    Here's a thought; had these tasty wheels happen to come from a SEAT or SKODA would people leave the centre caps on? If the answer is YES you are lying. If it's no, it's because it's seen as a lesser brand and entirely why it's a bit cringey to see Porsche (who own VAG, rather than part of it really) or Bentley caps left on because it's just sooo obvious they're left there to try and gain some kudos.

    I find the comment about it "not being easy to change centre caps" curious compared to the likely other far more complex modofications most cars have done to them! :D It's not the wheels that's the issue, it's the other-marque badges in the centre, left on as a "statement".

    If you had seen bentley badges you would see its not possible to change them and why bother anyway,so if you see an amazing car you would look round it and say wow,ow no hang on its not got the right centre badges i don't like it.

    I have has loads of people say how good the car looks and how nice the wheels look,even my neighbours
    comment who are not into cars,then they ask what the B stands for,they don't suddenly go ow i don't like it.
    The reason most people have so called better brand alloys is that alot of them use nicer and bigger alloys
    which we choose to run,rather than fitting 15" focus wheels

    Did they go "oooooh" when you said they're from a Bentley? :p

    Your wheels do look very nice but I will never see the logic of retaining the Bentley logo in the centre! It also looks like a regular round cap which could be removed from the main centre cap body? or you could just smooth and paint them to match the wheel (and laterly stick some AUDI badges/stickers on). But I know you just like the thought of Bentley badges on the car :)

    I like the look of both the Porches and Bentley rims... I wouldn't keep the centre caps though.

    I think this thread can be summarised very easily...

    -Other manufacturer wheels on an Audi, can look good depending on personal taste.

    -Other manufacturers badges applied to your Audi...MASSIVE FAIL
