    Subtle wheel design, it's application and colour, not so much. I should've been clearer.

    The wheels man the wheels :wub: love them on the AMG wagon, and great choice on the SB IMO. Alcantara is just sublime. It all just works, not the fondest of akoya nor purple wheels but that's just 1 sick SB :)

    You know that I love it but would love to see it on some polished splits. Its all the little details that not many people will even notice that I love the most.

    I for once love the wheels, reminds me of R32 mk4/5's but with more spokes, the alcantara work is very good & something I considered but kid stopped that :), although air ride isnt my thing the piping workmanship is without a doubt 1st class very good job, exhaust delete was discussion point huh, also looks very smart, so for me gets my vote even if the purple gaitor is a little puffy :p, your workmen should be commended for nice jobs.

    Haha don't suprise me one bit. Do you mind me asking, are these a "straight fit" i.e. no hud adaption etc? What offset etc? Wouldn't have thought you would have needed spacers for them.

    They are Merc fitment, so they are 5x112 but the centre bore is different, 66.6 as opposed to Audi's 57.1. I might take the front spacer off and run an 8mm on the back as they are ET54.

    Few new pics. Went to Luke's this morning for an afternoon on the cars, Luke has been asking me for months to come down, but I only got the car back before UD, and this is the first time I've driven it since then :laugh: Seeing as Luke is the best sparky in Disley, I wanted him to have a look at the electrics on my drivers seat. Since they've been trimmed (last June) the bolsters on the drivers seat have stopped working. He had a badgers:

    [​IMG]

    But no luck, we shall take the seat out next time (forgot my spline set) and have a look. To be honest, thats my next plans with the car, sorting out all the little issues with it. I need to:

    Sort drivers electrics out
    Re-wire airbag & heated seat plugs
    New fuel filter
    Service
    Put map back on
    New front strut
    Sort air leek

    After that, by summer, I'll have some more spare cash to mod again :yahoo: We gave the cars a wash

    [​IMG]

    The hardlined install is still as practical as ever:

    [​IMG]

    I forgot to add this when I originally made this thread, MJ also trimmed my floor matts as well:

    [​IMG]

    Just took some general pics:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Was nice seeing both A3s parked up, whenever I go to Luke's usually I'm like "Bro how low is your car, today it looked like it was on stilts :laugh:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fav pic of today:

    [​IMG]

    Also took a vid as well. Its of the rear going all the way down.



    Cheers peeps :wub:
