    had my RS4reps re finished in dark steel and imo they looked great BUT then i heard some sad news that there were only 1 set off these left ! so i had to have them ...........

    i got some spare mirrors off ebay and had them sprayed audi quartz cause the oem silver ones did nt "go" with the rs4 this colour was a shade lighter than the dark steel BUT matched these bang on .....

    I would never have thought of doing the mirror covers in THAT colour - probably because I wouldn't have had the nuts to go so 'off course', so to speak. But it all works bloomin' well.

    I love it ! :icon_thumright:

    Have to agree, looked 'right' If it were mine I'd lower it, but each there own bud.

    I also liked the flaps ;)

    thanks for the comments guys i ve got 225 on so am led to believe that H&R s should be ok , i do keep looking at them so this will probably be my next mod but not for a while want to do a few bits inside the car first (they cost less ! ):icon_thumright:

    Not that you need any confirmation as it is your car, but I did look to see what you were running and they are definatley 225's :laugh:

    I did have to look twice though

    You should be ok with the H&R springs, just dont add any more doors and you'll be fine :moa:

    I think boydie is running 235's and getting away with it.

    Lots of factors which have been talked about to death now I think, tyre make, offset, 3door or sportback .....................................

    I dont even think you flaps will get in the way as when people have had rubbage its always been at around the 10 to o'clock bit of the arch.

    Despite all the excellent info I get off here I'm still taking a gamble on 225x35x19 in Goodyear Assymetrics, car not lowered yet though so time will tell. I drove Matt Andrew's H&R lowered S3 with 19" CK and his rub is pretty minimal, we also compared the postioning of the rear arch screw and it seems to be the same on both 3 and 5 door, time will tell...
