    Hi Guys

    Just thought I would post up some pics of the current project. The rims are on, the rears didn't really want to go on but they went on with a little work. I am still considering a wide arch conversion of some sort, but I don't want an RS4 rep (I hate cars that look like something they are not). We might make the arches about 10mm wider with matal to give a wide look that is still quite subtle.
    The stance need sorting as the front is too high and the rears about a low as it can be at the moment (until we go wide arch), so considering coilovers so we can get the stance we want. It just seems a waste to stick £700 KW V1s on a car that is just for cruising in!!!!
    We will start on the audio soon with an Alpine HU, Focal front comps with Focal amp and an MB Quart 12" sub with a Focal amp running it. I'll keep you posted as we go.

    Let me know what you think of the rims.

    Hmm sorry to make a triple, but I'm not a fan of the wheels either :( They remind me of Nouvolari's ....

    Having said that the size of them together with the cars stance look awesome :o.k:

    The ride is stiffer obviously, but not too harsh. Just need to avoid pot holes!!! It will get a little stiffer again once gthe suspension gets done, but I am willing to live with it.

    I was looking at 18x10" at the back but thought will be to wide.
    Any problems with rear mate?
    Which focal comps you're gonna put? Kevlars or utopia be?

    That IMO looks Verrrry good. Especially when the wheels are pulled out further.
    That to me would be something Id have to have done if I had an Avant for defo.

    Errrr, effing yes!!!! Are they RS arches, they don't look like they are, the rears do not flow into the back doors from what I can see. If not RS arches are they aftermarket and if so where can I get a set!!!!
