    Hi I am thinking about buying this A4 Cab from a dealer, but I really dont like these wheels, I dont think they are a standard Audi A4 Cab set of wheels but maybe Im wrong?

    If they aren't it would give me some ammo for the dealer to knock him down a bit....

    So can anyone tell me if they are standard, or a special or off another car? Does anyone recognise them?

    Im going to slap some RS4 alloys on it anyway, but perhaps if I say theve come off an A3 or something he may be more inclined for me to knock him down...

    Many thanks for any info you have... Going to buy the car on Sunday...

    RJ

    I heard somewhere once that there was a special edition which has BBS CH rims without the motorsport logo on, but I never had confirmation of that.

    Those BBS rims are worth more than the standard s-line rims anyway, as they are rarer. Buy it and may a few ££ by selling the rims on when you get RS4s...

    Im actually now wondering if the car is a Special Edition and he just hasn't realised that... Do you think that is possible? Anyway I can tell if its a special edition? i.e different spec inside or engine etc, I know the special edition has and extra 20bhp...

    Thanks

    Bl**dy hell.. really?! The book value on mine is apparently 9.5k (which I found out afterwards..) so 1.5k margin when I bought it went to the dealer.. Offers of 7500 would make me want to give the guy making the offer a noogie..

    Like i say, long story.. but the potted version is.. ; Bought it in december, had to travel 100 miles as was looking for one with nav, heated leather, bose etc. Picked it up and immediately there were some issues.Black smoke on acceleration, wobble throughout the car at about 70mph+, noisy turbo, and a terrible clattering noise for half a second after starting on a warm re-start.

    I raised it with the dealer after xmas and he took it back and put a new turbo on it for me (which is good..) and looked into the other issues but couldnt really find anything else wrong. I got it back from him a couple of weeks ago and it felt a lot better so took it to my local indy specialist and there is a still an oil leak from the oil feed pipe to the turbocharger. The wobble that I had put down to wheel balancing issues has been diagnosed and (there are some obvious gauges out of the nearside alloys which I was planning to have refurbed) the indy reckons the wheels are completely buckled and there is probably some sort of bent suspension component in there too..


    I have now been back to the dealer again in writing pointing out these issues and am waiting for him to get back to me. The way I see it, the oil leak is an aftercare issue for the garage that fitted the turbo. The wheels are MUCH worse than I was led to believe when I bought the car and we cant check the suspension properly until the wheels are sorted. So I'm waiting to hear back from them on what they are going to do about it.

    Otherwise I may be asking for a refund!

    Those are the same wheels as i have on mine, they were offered as an option.

    I actually looked for a car with these wheels as they were different to the std S-line wheels.
