    Cheeky git! He said he paid 1600 euros for them without the tyres! How sure are you that they are?

    Genuine BBS have quite a lot of branding stamped on them and have made in Germany on them, the biggest give away as to wether genuine or replica is the offset, BBS CH = ET50, BBS CK ET45.

    Reps come in several offsets the most common being ET45, it's worth hanging on for a genuine set in my opinion but having said that there are some very good reps out there particularly ones made in Italy, a lot of Audi OEM stuff is made in Italy.

    Good luck with your search.

    Doesnt matter if they are reps or genuine, they wont fit anyway, the advert clearly states ET35 so they will stick out too far, you will need 45+ Not only that, the tyres are way too big. Fit an A4 perfect mind!

    Last question, will these fit?

    19"x9 ET50 235/35

    Calculator says they will but need to be sure!

    No, they'll rub on the struts. Also the tyres will rub on the arches.

    With 10mm spacers the wheels will fit nicely, but you'd really want 215's for stretch and less rubbing.

    Cheers Pete. Dont understand the "stretch and less rubbing" though. So with spacer they would still rub?
