    You should use the B5 A4 section rather than here...

    I like the new rims, cars too low at the back though, reverse rake is not cool!

    Thats on a hill, with my old wheels in the boot so that's probs not helping, but you're quite right RR isn't cool.

    Also I know no one in the b5 section 8L is my home lol

    You know me, Jason and Aragorn.

    Yes they looked nice, and yes they really suited the car, but somehow it was just a bit too 'oldman-ish' for Dane I think on those rims.

    These look far more suited to Dane I reckon, it looks fat and aggressive. before it just looked 'very smart'

    Jo they're gloss black bud, everyones going to like different things, the b7's do have a nice concavity to them but they are done to death these days and because every woman and her sline has the same design of wheel they just aren't very special IMO.

    thanks Ben!

    Cheers Prawny should look good on the asn stand at inters huh ;)

    I know this is risking a barrage of abuse, but personally I think with black everything it's too dark now Dane. I preferred it the way it was personally. Just my view.

    Nah it's just the crappy quality from my iPhone it's all there, I took some better quality ones this evening, just waiting for a laptop to become free to download them off the camera.

    People have mentioned this, personally I think the colour of these caps helps break up the black a little bit.

    I left the Chrome window trim on, be happy :) ;) :ninja:

    I think loosing the chrome around the windows would be too far

    Love the wheels man. It's nice to see a different set of Porsche wheels too and not the usual stuff all the MK4 boys fit.
    I know what you mean about the B7's too, my mum has them on her A4 :p

    I saw yours a while back, and breathed a sigh of relief that we went for different ones.

    They are 19x9 ET 60 with 265 30 19 tyres and 40mm adapters I've got some 10mm spacers to try for looks but they sit well enough atm
