    Should be ordering my wheels next week but want to do a final check on what people have got on their B5's

    Please could you post a pic or 2, what size they are and how much of a drop you have.

    They're to go on my Black 1.8t Sport

    Cheers guys /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Do you all have bone crunching ride quality or does it deal it with quite well?

    If you want to keep most of the comfort go for lowering springs and a profile above 45...
    The coilovers i have are FK highsports and they are excellent...i would suggest them to anyone who is looking for handling...with a match of low pro's. But it is a very stiff ride, and you feel every bump....

    Hadn't thought of that /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I'm not much good with Photoshop myself... although given a few hours I'd soon have it mastered /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Just wondered about opinions that's all... and wanted to show everyone the wheels, because I like them.

    I don't think I'll be getting new wheels any time soon... maybe after I finish the rest of the car but not before. I've been collecting parts long enough! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    No idea actually Olly... I saw them on e-bay a while back and saved the images but I've deleted the items from my watch list now /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Sorry dude.

    EDIT: Just done a quick search through e-bay. Here are the wheels in the guys e-bay shop, maybe you could ask..? Also, don't be put off by the fact that they are listed for a Honda with an offset of ET40, I definately saw them with ET35 previously and they were listed as for an Audi. Even asked him and the postage was ridiculously cheap, about £40 I think /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    They are Rial Nogaro rims.

    I was gonna buy them but decided i liked the RS6's more because mine will eventually be anthracite.
