    Not my cup to be honest and even though they are reps I'd go for BBS LM replicas? Just my 2p worth

    someone at my work has got a red 8P with the S5 style wheels. they must be reps but you'd be hard pressed to tell and normally i can smell reps a mile off. i think they'd look awesome on your car.

    One of the wheels I bought has schratches on the inside lip...

    [​IMG]

    Are these still ok to use?

    Any idea on how this could happen? The previous owner did have a very low A4. Strange thing is, the other 3 wheels are spotless :shrug:

    Anyone here running on Bilstein B14 of KW Variant 1? Just wondering how firm they are compared to the S-line suspension (which is quite hard imo for an OEM suspension).

    ahhhhh i just realised when i logged into eBay, I have won a set of BBS Speedlines! They are 8.5x19 ET 42. They are currently wearing 255 35 section tyres, which id sell. How much am I looking at for a refurb (breakdown, re-polish rim, and paint centres).

    Thanks guys
