    Well me wheels have arrived;
    [​IMG]
    As you can see they have come (not as described on ebay) with 2 different size tyres on, 215's & 235's, the 215's are knackered, both inner edges ripped to bits.
    Dont know why, and a stupid thing to say but they look like they wont fit, the stud set up looks smaller then mine, will have to check that out, is the any numbers on the inner wheel that could help me??

    [​IMG]
    Oh dear look what i found, that wont be takin many rims of with that, DAMN !!!!

    Model Year PCD Offset Bore

    A4 95 on 5×112 35 to 45 57.1

    Best way to find out if they fit is to try one! But got a feeling the bora is a different PCD to the a4 but could be wrong.

    Boras have a 5 x 100 PCD........same as a Mk4 Golf. My last car was a GT TDi Mk4 Golf, and put 'Bora Sport' alloys on that. They will not fit a B6 A4 which is as above 5 x 112.....

    Right give up on the RS6 5x100s, and got me self a nice set of (well the need a light refurb) BBS LM 19x8.5's all in black, pics to follow once fitted, as one has a slight crack in so been welded.

    Another little job done this weekend, EGR Delete pipe, always a bit of a pig job, no room and very messy due to a minging EGR leaking all over everything, anyway all was well until the test drive, no brakes and no boost!!
    NO PANIC - as we all know with these german whips vacum is a major thing, popped bonnet 1 quick look and could see that when i had taken the pipe of the anti-shudder valve it had pulled of the other end aswel, popped back on, and hey presto she flies, real nice power all the way through the revs.

    Just springs, decat and rims on then i can start on me wish list lol.

    Had a play in the rain last night, they do need a slight refurb but can't work out what to do, might just go the normal polished edges, does like fat with these on though, lol!!!!!!

    I go them off my friend who had the on a Mk5 Golf.

    I think they would class as brushed centers with polished lip, but tbh at the moment there isn't much difference. I need to spend a few hours polishing them up to make them shiiine!

    Are yours legit BBS or reps?

    Yeah reps here too.

    When you have them refurb'd, let me know what they do with the plastic fake screws.
    When my friend had them done, he said he cant do anything with them as they are plastic.

    I've looked online and the only option is to drill them out. The problem is finding replacements.
    I'm not sure if these actually have threads on them (as they wont un-screw) or if they are studs that pop out, which also doesn't happen lol

    The rears are just Monroe shocks (pretty new) but couldnt see nothing on the springs! So they didnt get done, only due to the snapped bolt in my strut leg, and not having me tourqe sockets with me i could take the hub of, not like i really wanted to anyway with not having new bearings to press in!
