    What wheel do you have and why don't you get it trimmed, alcantara wheels are lovely, my cousin will be putting an RS4 one in his TT soon...:wub:

    I have the standard 3 spoke sport wheel which i like i just like the alcantara verson and theres a few on ebay at the moment that look tempting, although they dont come with the s line badge on the bottom spoke which is a pity as i think it looks well...

    Cheers N8, I'm not sure if they'd fit on an 8P though, thats where my knowledge on the subject ends!
