    about £560 I think, depending on the exchange rate. I'm going to contact them to find out. Spending over £2k on just alloys is a bit much, but they do look the dogs.

    £578 for an alloy (19") - based on an approximated Euro rate.

    Not too bad.

    My only fear about these wheels is as much as I love them Audi seem to be chucking them on everything from 1.4TFSi's to RS4's of late. Plus I'm seeing ever more aftermarket ones appearing on older VAG's.

    Still very nice though

    They aren't RS4 reps, they are O.CTs own design (albeit quite similar to RS4's)

    Shades is great, but he hasn't been on here for a while :ermm: But they look quite nice. I'm not sure the diamond cut effect compliments your sprint blue though :huh: But they are a nice wheel, even if they are similar to the RS4s :moa: You gonna lower it? If so springs? :mad: Or coilovers :sex:

    I totally agree! thats why I was after a photoshop :) I recon the polished ones will go much better with the blue. If I had a black or white car the two-tone would certainly look amazing.

    Yeah, I want to lower, basically something like this but maybe with the O.CT wheels:

    one nice thing about the polished / black wheels is that the silver lip is right on the outside of the rim and lined by an inner black rim. This should give the optical illusion of making the wheels look bigger than a solid silver rim. The more I look at them the more I like them.

    Yeah, true, I much prefer that wheel, but I don't think it would go with the blue very well.

    Agree, defo silver for yours I think. As lovely as they are you multiply the price out and add 4 tyres at around £170 a corner for decent rubber and thats quite a bill. But that said they are smarter than run of the mill RS4's.

    Any info on weight for them? If they are that pricey you hope you'd also have a weight saving to add a bit of performance benefit. Would offset the extra weight of going up to 19s

    I could kiss you :kiss: more people on here need to wake up to coilovers, they really do change the game. I can't wait till mine are on my car and when we meet up for meets, I'll let people drive so they can feel the difference :moa:

    Obviosuly they would fill the arches a lot more in real life, they look pretty good, hmmm, not sure which would be best.

    They do look alright. Lowered properly on coilovers at the right height, they probably will look amazing! Go for it lad! Pull the papes out! :p

    Yeah, its going to add up, I need new tyres soon, so I might wait till they need changing and then just get the 19's and some Eagle F1 asymms for them too. I'll do the suspension at the same time. It really is going to be a big bill! :( Maybe I'll wait for a while to save up a bit!!

    Guildford, names Alex.

    They dont have Eagle F1's for 19's unfortunately, but the tyres do look cheap there.

    I'm on michelins at the moment which are great, but I've heard very good things about the Eagle F1 asyms, they will be my next tyres.

    Personally I think your OEM wheels look much nicer (okay much more common I agree)
    O.CT ones look cheap and nasty imo

    Really!? I recon they look really nice, certainly not cheap looking imo. That black S3 looks very smart with them on. I'm not a big fan of the OEM wheels, too small and not dished enough, quite flat looking.

    Agree with you they do not look as good as the real RS4 wheels perhaps the O.CD wheels look better in real life.
    I might be interested in your OEM ones if you decide to change them.
    Also Im an old fart and have never been into black wheels so might be better to ignore me :icon_thumright:

    I know dipstic, I'm only messing. I think audi's oem wheels are of a poor standard compared with BMWs....take this 320d for example....

    Usually most 19"s are 7.5/8.5 but mine say 19"x8 on the box, spoke to a few places and they've just said get a 235/35/19 tyre, which I'm gonna do. You got any bigger pics of your car?
