    Guys, had my LM reps put on just now and thought id start a fresh thread as iv been aske to post up pictures by a few people.

    The springs have still to settle down after being jacked up so car looks like an SE atm ha ha.

    Also i forgot to put my BBS centre caps on before taking pics like a div.

    hope you like, they are as per my sig.

    Thanks mate, just cant wait for AP's to drop back down so it looks like its actually been lowered, might go back to coilovers next year and some rubber band tires with a hot stretch. might not be the best idea on Uk roads though?

    What wheels are you running now mate? i know you've posted them in another thread but i forgot ha ha!

    I've just got 19" RS6 reps. They look better than the standard ones because they have a bit more of a dish to them but I prefer those wheels on yours.

    The huge drop and rubber bands might not be the best for Leeds roads but it will look sweet! If you sell the AP's let me know.

    I'm from Leeds too so I'll keep a look out for you.

    thanks man, at the moment im on my tyre off my s-line rims which are 235/40/18 but ill be changing them in new year to some 205/40/18 & 215/40/18 for more stretch.

    They sit flush in the front and in the rear they poke out slightly but it looks cool.

    This cracked me up.. But on the same note why O why let someone else wash your car and your new wheel's ?? Those road side **** wash sorry car wash outfits use low grade product's, so if I was you I would apply the wheel sealant and wax ASAP or take them off untill spring as the road salt/grit will tarnish and pit them in no time.

    Looks great! Currently thinking about going for a similar set but in 19''

    Was there any specific reason you went with 18"s?

    Do you have any more pics for us?

    Yeah there is a specific wheel section on Audizine, it's over 230 pages of just wheels on B7 A4's and after spending many an hour trawling through I decided 18's would look better with stretched tyres and very low. Getting Coilovers and skinnier tyres next year.

    No new pics yet but I will when it's clean.

    Glad you like and thanks everyone for your comments!

    Go to B7 section then click "chatterbox" right at the top and it's called " fir those who like to be different when it comes to wheels"

    I can't link on my phone but I will on laptop if you still can't find ir.

    It's stickied in chatterbox so it's easy to find.

    I prefer 19" on an A4 as i think 18" look a bit small. But look better than the standard alloys

    Cool thanks will let it settle alittle more as its still dropping then give it a clean and post up pics. H&R are amazing though big drop way more than the 35mm stated and ride is actually better than std sline springs ! I have used allot of different springs on alot of different cars but these are by far the best I have ever used and cheap too thanks to a memeber on here for a link to german flee bay I got them delivered for just £115.

    i have bought myself 19" BBS reps for my 2.0tfsi s-line but the bloody brake callipers are to big to get the wheels on, did you use spacers or anything? its only the front they wont go on.

    No they went straight on, from what iv been told there are 2 different companies that make LM reps and 1 set fit just fine and one set don't clear the calipers. I did need spigot rings though as they were merc centre bore. What CB are yours?

    Not sure mate you will need to watch the offset if you go for a 35 you should be fine but I would just space the ones you have out?
