    WOW! Lots of love in this thread, almost as much love as a foster child!

    Thanks guys, I'm VERY VERY happy with the way the car looks & sits, its why I bought this set as they are 8.5s and 9s so they stance proper, although when you see it at DC11 (if you go), you will see how scary the brake clearance is! They JUST clear :laugh:

    The wheels could do with a full proper refurb to be honest. The wheels are still in original spec, so as they are different widths they are 2 different shades of silver between the front and rear I had the faces polished, and they've come out well, I will sort em properly later....

    Car is at Audi having major service and DSG oil, so should be driving proper later when I pick her up! I may add some proper pics over weekend but I expect there will be BALLER pics in here next week from Travis from the DC meet next tues :wub:

    I would just say that, I am shocked how much of you lot like it, considering they are HUGE! :laugh:

    That is all for now :wub:

    i like the style of wheel but imo that looks awful. I like lowered cars but when that low it looks ugly - the arches suddenly look far 2 big. Sure my opinion isnt worth much to you but thats my thoughts!

    Not sure why you'd want to leave feedback like that in someone's build thread but I guess that's your call fella.

    Many of us love that extreme air-ride stance but each to their own.

    Bro, you don't have to apologise for your opinion! If you like something you like it, if you don't, well, you don't! You cannot be forced, end of the day, 1 person needs to like it me! If others like it great, if they don't, also great! Who cares :laugh:

    I love Nate to bits too but i feel his car is waaaayyyy tooooo low - looks broken LOL. End of day there's no right nor wrong, you create your own personal masterpiece for youself & if other peeps like it too, cool. That said, gonna drop mine 45mm - pram ride by Nate's standard but functional for me too ;-)

    Update:

    I had the car serviced @ Manc Audi yesterday, major service and DSG oil change, so shes driving silky smooth now. Today Luke & I had a bit of a bro fest @ the unit. I give her a clean and some Jazzy Jeffs as I'm going to the DC meet on tuesday :wub: I have a slight ding in my drivers arch which I'm gonna sort for DC11, and I will get wheels properly furbed before ed38 also.

    Car is going back to Plush this week for some warranty work, and I've hopefully got a cheeky little mod going on that I've bought, but I'm not going to give it then big un' just incase it flops :laugh: Then its sorting the drivers electric seat out, getting the heated to work and removing air bag light from dash!

    Here's the pics from today:

    Oooooohhh Matron, that does look nice, makes the arches look spot on now tbh, 8P always looked weird with smaller wheels, although IMHO they wont last long on our roads, nethertheless looks nice in that pic.

    How much does a unit that size set you back these days as that looks quite cool tbh & when you gonna showcase more of your work you snyde :p

    How the f'k does he get away with it - those 20's should look tooooo huuuge, imo, but they just don't.....they look spot on :rock:

    As for the car looking too low....ever thought it may be the ground being too high ? <gone into mantra state>.... :laugh:
