    Jst wondering what peoples opinion on replica alloys are? My b7 s line currently has geuine rs4 alloys fitted (10spoke) from factory but they could do with a refurb. That is quite expensive here in Ireland so as an alternative i am looking at changing to a new set. I always liked the newer rs4 alloys (7 split spoke) and ebay seems to be flooded with replica sets. What do ye think?

    Also are the genuine rs4 alloys that typical vag alloy silver or are they mirror finish with a black back to them? Thanks.

    Reps r ok but u have to b careful, u can get decent ones and cheap Chinese ones. Stay away from the chinese ones cos as soon as u go over a pot hole or summat ull buckle em. The cheap sets r also like a horrible mat finish whereas the good ones r a nice shiny finish close to what genuine ones wud b like!
