    Has anyone noticed the really nice looking aluminium valve assembly on the RS4 wheels. I saw some today in Reading Audi (whilst waiting hours and hours for parts dept to appear).Are they a standard part or are they specifically designed for the RS4 alloys? If they are universal I wouldn't mind getting some for mine rather than the black rubber ones. Your thoughts?

    Ah they look alright. Are they quite big that they stick out like a sore thumb? I think anything too big would actually make it look bad =/

    yea maybe ... but if you look at the thread in the picture they don't really look that big. But you might lose them as soon as you leave your car by the road ...

    One would need to put remove the tyres to add these, as it is a complete valve assembly.
