    Lady's and gentleman, so do I keep my standard S3 alloys and have them refurbed by my neighbour, or do I replace them with some (replica) BBS CH alloys! I can't decide, I'm genuinely torn between the two! And if the replica route wins, shall I stay on 17's or do I go 18?

    stick with the standard as reps are normally poor quality compared to the Avus , I am just selling my bbs lm reps at the moment as i keep loosing the balancing on silly bumps . Either spend a lot of money on a decent set of reps and not a £400 set off ebay or stick with what Audi thought best Avus i my opinion . I am getting my 17" Avus rims refurbished as we speak and i am looking forward to getting them back where they belong !

    I think I agree mate, but you know when you just get a itch to change it a little bit! That's what I'm going through! My friend got a set of the reps of eBay, and your spot on he has problems with his, but he does drive on some terrible roads! Maybe genuine? I really am struggling to decide!

    If your thinking of getting some fork out for some genuine ones . Worth it in the long run and you wont have to be always on the look out for silly little bumps that cause a trip out get them balanced every time you hit one . When i have a spare £2000 i will look into getting some real bbs lms but till then i am running my 17s.

    Ha ha that's the thing with genuine!! 2k is a lot of cash for wheels on a daily I reckon! Think that's why I am contemplating replica, just spent a wedge on having my car repainted!

    18" Avus are nice and quality or your bbs ch are 1200 new . I suppose the only reason i say stick with the real thing is that i have only had bad experiences with reps ,you may have good ones who knows?

    Im confused mate? The link you sent was for some 5 spoke wheels? I love the BBS LE MANS so much! So are you selling the LE MANS or the 5 spoke wheel that you posted the link for?

    Your wheels, rep or not do look super slick!! What wheels will you choose next when yours sell? How much are they? Can't you straighten them?
