    Woa, those rims! They look nice Nate, looks like they came off a white/red GT3:) What happened to the A8 20s?

    P.S. Where do you get all your money?? The detailing is just a masquerade right? :lmfao:

    I can shout about it, seen this been done so many times with silver cars and different coloured cars. Dressing a car with colours is like dressing yourself with clothes, you dont have to stick with just one same old colour, and other colours complement each other. Ive been on the VAG show scene for coming upto 11 years now.

    different coloured rims is huge on the VAG scene. Goto some shows or even just visit some sites/forums like this and you will see.

    Hey Ash,

    I trial fitted the rims tonight they look great BUT, car needs to come down alot though :sob: and still ain't got me centre caps back yet, so hopefully the spacers will be here friday, then get car lowered saturday and detail - I hope!!

    They look mint, and hence why they went on in the first place Blazin, you talking like me and Mikey ain't got a clue?? :rolleyes:

    My bank account

    But you've been welding for 31 years, so don't give up your day job Mike :lazy:

    Failing that, www.weldingworld.co.uk should sort ya out :laugh:

    Last properly fast car I had was fitted with AP Racing 350mm discs at the front and standard rear discs...under braking,the weight transfer ensures that at least 80 of the load is taken by the fronts.

    Obviously both sets of discs were run with decent pads(Pagid).
