    As the title says..... has anyone got some pics (side on, preferably) of a 3 door Sport on 18" alloys (RS6s if possible), that has not been lowered.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Thanks for that mate!

    I see what you're saying about going a little bit lower. IMO it looks fine as it is, but dropping it a bit would round it off nicely.

    Are your wheels original audi or reps?

    Been looking round at a few reps but some of them seem to have narrower spokes, which I don't like.

    From what I read wheelbase is probably one of the best places to buy reps?!?

    yea mine are the wheelbase reps, the only difference i can spot is the centre cape, just looks like a sticker instead of an audi badge, but you can replace it with the original one from standard alloys. yea, with the H&R 35mm it should drop about 25mm which would be perfect i think. well i hope so anyway! lol

    Oh so far I've done loads of mods!!!
    Well.... i've changed my headlight/sidelight bulbs to those Philips Xtreme-Power. That's about it!! lol :)

    Things I'm definitely going to do over the next few months...

    1) Wheels (and springs, depending on how it looks in the flesh with my sports springs)
    2) 09 rear lights
    3) Aluminium interior trim, if i can hold of it for a reasonable price


    Things I plan to do at some stage, not a definitely though...

    1) Front end single grill conversion
    2) RNS-E
    3) front splitter and a rear spoiler.


    So those mods in your signature.... are they what you are planning on doing???

    no, thats what i have done, just waiting for the springs to be fitted. i think it looks really nice with the black wing mirrors, black grill, splitter and lamin-x, i bought a small sheet of lamin-x to do the side repeaters. have been thinking about refurbing the alloys as i got a few scuffs on them and then getting them in a titanium/gun metal grey

    i also want to get the aluminium interior and the single grill conversion, its just hard to find now n quite pricey!
