    I was after a set a couple of months ago but opted for some RS4 ones that were 8.5J wide and had a bit of a deep dish look with the intention of spraying them a different colour.

    Out of curiosity, what size, width and offset are they? They look like 18'' ones...

    Didnt think you would need spacers on the back if they were 9J but suppose it depends on the offset.

    They look spot on mind.

    What 3sdms have you gone for?

    Staggered is the only way to do it with deep dish alloys! :thumbsup:

    So is that the 0.05 ones?

    Why's it smooth?

    I kid of course :p Very nice mate, same colour as mine, gives me some good ideas on where to go. Would like to get my grille done like yours, is it difficult to do?

    In the last pic it looks like you have some of the head light blacked out? Or is that just the pic?

    Nice one, think ill have to get the grill out and give it a paint up. Think the headlights will have to wait for now, new rims and tyres first.
