    Hi there, i've been lurking about on the forum for a bit and finally got my car to the point where I feel like posting some pictures

    I started off with a 53 plate audi a4 se 130 tdi with 6 cd changer, heated leather and a split fold rear seat. It had done 55k and I haggled a cambelt change when I brought the car.

    It's now been remapped by Gwerks and had some KV varient 1 coilovers which are maybe even slightly more comfortable than the standard suspension.

    And I've also added a set of 19" 2 peice bentley split rims.

    Before

    And now, on the winter wheels, i've raised it up now as speed humps were a big issue but this is the height for the bentley wheels

    Maybe it was a bit too low with the 16's on :uhm:

    And finally with the news wheels on. I'm impressed how just two modifications can completely change the car

    I have a few more bits to do before edition such as fit the 20mm spacers to the rear and hope that the rear drops down a bit more as it settles. Also find two more wheels as these came up cheap so I need to save for two more so this is a WIP. :blush:

    Looking good so far, good job.

    That is seriously low, wouldnt get away with it round my neck of the woods...:3sadwalk:

    Get some tints, black out the Grill(s), maybe even Joey mod the lights and that would do me.

    Defo get a good detailing being as its black!!!!

    Wheels aint my cuppa but hey its your ride mate, thats what counts.

    Can see this one shaping up very well.

    Keep it up.:icon_thumright:

    Lol did I read that right? You only have 2 wheels at the moment? That explains why there are no photos of the nearside then!

    Looks good tho', its certainly low - is it a nightmare with speed bumps etc? Its a bit too low for me to be honest but I can see why you like it! What size tyres are they? The rims look very vulnerable - watch those kerbs!!

    Great choice of suspension. KW's back up is second to none.

    But you've got it far too low at the front. Just raising it 15mm would make all the difference. What is the distance between the wheel centre and wheel arch?

    It shouldn't be less than 325mm or you'll just screw up the suspension geometry and the car will bump steer like a cattle cart.

    F*!k me that's low! My hoover has a higher ride height!

    Those rims look sweet, Never seen them on an Audi before. Just out of interest how much do they tend to go for each ?

    the tyres are a 235/35/19 with a nice stretch the wheels are only for the summer really and shows to keep them in good condition.

    I'll check the dimensions for the bump steer.

    Well new from bentley the wheels are just under £800 each plus a tyre

    Bentleys are awesome, was considering a set off a Mullingar for my own.

    Looks well, more blackening and you're sorted!
