    You'll want 40 profile tyres, 235/40 x 18 will match your existing wheel's rolling radius.

    35 series tyres will give you a nice rubber band look and there nowhere near as hard a ride as people make out.

    if the wheels look lost in the arch now, it'll look a whole lot worse going with a 35 profile. best to stick with a 40 on the a4 as theyre big cars.

    as for your car/wheels not being as you'd expected, have you lowered it? that'll make a hell of a difference.

    have a look at my thread, you can see the difference between standard sport suspension on 18" wheels against same wheels with coilovers fitted (maybe a bit too low for some?)

    hope that helps, carl
