what ya think?
nice car m8 whats your suspension set up? and are they 19"?
yes they are 19's.... suspension is standard for now...
will be lowered and bumpers painted soon:
the wheels look good, it will look stunning once you lower it and get the black bits sprayed :icon_thumright:
Looks good, agree it will look even better once the blacks bits are colour coded.
I'm planning the same with my A6 in the next few weeks.
Are the wheels replicas or Originals, and where did you get them? Also where or how do you go about getting the lower plastics painted, mine are grey and really could do with matching the car
They are italian replicas mate
be careful with the replicas mate i had 18's in that style, they are not very strong and imo weak, and they had more tyre on them than the 19's u got.
The 20's i've got now are £256 a wheel and so far i'm well impressed with them they haven't buckled and it's lowered on quite stiff suspension and weighs a ton now which puts more pressure on them, and some times i have treated them harshly and yet still are running true 100% (all 4! yes i've checked them!)
Basicially u get what u pay for so watch out for those potholes and bumps in the road, they will bend them!
I got Orginals on mine and I got 2 wheels buckled bad!
In some cases!
Audi want £601 inc a corner for my car....and they will bend again
Thinking of going for a set of MTM's or ABT SP1's can't decide yet, waiting for the suspesion to get sorted then I will invest in new wheels
AJO car looks sweet buddy
There are two different replica designs though mate
Japanese ones.. which are cheap and very weak
Italian ones... which are much better quality and more expensive.
some japanese ones carry the name ITALIA to fool people into thinking they are more expensive ones...
mine are Made in italy and are a very good quality wheel
Just saying be careful mate, italian or japanese reps are designed for one perpose only. And it seems genuine audi wheels are just as bad. Then again they're not wheel specialist manufacturers. So probabily a bit hit n miss.
But the 19's do definatly look better than 18's woth the extra dollar.
I don't think it looks better with painted skirts. I think you would be happier with spending money on alu side mirrors like some RS models have. particularly the red color can benefit from those I think.
i wouldnt be happy spending money on chrome mirrors at all... trust me!
Ajo, take a look at marmite's RS6 above. just painting everything red will make it look like a clumsy overweight retarded girl. I'm just saying
Audi's own S brochures have red cars with brushed metal side mirrors
Get some brushed Mirrors on there may look nice
I think the fully colur coded look is nice - but do like the silver style mirrors.
I like my car.... pretty car
sure but I do think it looks heavier.
also personally I would never choose an avant. for me it's a crime against the design. I like the rims which help any car it seems. odd how important that is but I'm hoping to be able to put the A8 replica 'turbine look' on if I get an Audi.
19 would be nice but might have to live with 18s
btw Ajo, your car looks quite nice as is, especially in picture 2 which is the angle where the C5 design holds fully to this day
Each to their own, but I think that the colour coded cars look lower, is that the sort of thing your thinking of when you say heavier? not sure what you mean. I like the saloons too, but Avants have much more adaptability though, I like my mountain biking, bikes on the roof (no marks on the roof where the thule footpack sits as i have roof rails), wet gear, bags etc in the back, ideal.
Practical car that IMO looks the business.
the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same thing
are thay 18s or 19s on your avant ? allso have you had it lowerd ?
18's and its running standard suspension, abeit that being the sports option. I did read somewhere that the sports option was standard from 2001 and you had to delete the option to get the softer suspension.
i want to put 18s on mine cose i think it will avodi the nead to lower it to make it look right ? . its a 2.5 tdi sport 53 plate. has any one got i pic of 18inch rs6 on a dark bule a6 with standard sports suspension. not the advant modle tho.
Like the colour coded and lowered look AJO. Looking to lower mine soon and have thought of colour coding. Sorry v9290n0 mine is Silver on RS6 18's.
Also with lip spoiler and 1.8T debadged.
sorry for hi-jack anyone know were i can buy the burshed alloy wing mirror covers from, can only find chrome
doy you have any side on pics stevoa6 ? and is it on std susspension ? thanx
Not yet sorry. I'll get some set up over the next couple of days - I'll PM you.
