    Hi

    Audi told me my 18" Star replica wheels were all bent/warped during a service ( probs due to speed and the **** crossings around me ) and duly purchased a set of 17"s. Bit sick really cos they looked great

    So I have a set of well looked after 18" Star replicas that are as useful as a chocolate teapot.

    Anybody want them. Flowerpots, sculpture ?????????????????

    Any interesting suggestions before they go to the tip.

    Can post pics if anyone is interested

    Simon

    If I could get them, Id take them for a mounting in my mates bodyshop.

    Im in the middle of making a coffee table from a buggered 15" Audiobahn sub at the minute.

    All 4 of them warped and bent? Seems odd? (Not saying they're lying to you, just seems strange).
    Can you post pics of them then?

    Well I wasnt going to say anything but 4 warped and bent alloys in extraordinary. Ive bent 1 and knew it was bent immediately.

    If it was me, id get a 2nd opinion, they may have just stroked you something shocking.

    hi

    audi flagged 2 of them visually on a service and a mate of mine checked them on his balancer and all 4 were out in some way plus the tyres were ready for replacing

    so rather than mess about I just ordered another set.

    as i said pretty **** roads and crossings round here, add a bit of speed and thats the result. certainly take crossings a bit steadier now

    will post them up soon

    on nights at the mo and can't be arsed to drag them out :(

    I realise I'm second in line now, but if your mate can't get them over to Ireland, I may be interested as I'm not too far from you :icon_thumright:
