    Was exactly the same style, were advertised as being 'rarely available' on the advert, and about the timing is about right too! Good luck to you fella, looks the dogs!

    Looking very nice! I've been thinking about a set of these. Almost bought them a while back, but decided on FK AK Street coilovers instead, but they're ****! How is the ride with these? Are they very hard? The FK's seem a bit too soft really.

    Thanks mate, i'm glad its been well received was unsure when i first bought the wheels wether they'd suit or not but its coming along. My cousins got the same size on his 9's haha, i used to think the 235/40's on the 18's were low pro but they look like off road tyres now haha. Don't know mate i'd like to try and make a few but its finding time and someone to go with as none of my mates are really into cars lol

    Really?!? lol i know the feeling.......i did it, luckily dont pay quite as much as that but not far off, totally worth it now though, well till someone leans against it and it falls through eek

    RS4 ones are mint as, but i was lucky enough to had the cash at hand, and someone was selling one second hand, if it was now, id have no chance as im skint skint skint!!!!!

    As said on edition mate looks lovely :) RS4 grille would look sweet on the front and make it a lot more aggressive.
    Love the RS6 grilles :wub:
