    I'm glad you like/dislike. They are just OEM colour Mart, I'm not changing the colour. I'd love the 9s off the RS5 to go on the rear, but 9J + ET27 + A3 8P isn't going to happen! They were just put on as a customer has my TDs at the moment, they'll be going on in May before Worthersee :wub:

    It's on air ride dude! Speed bumps are no issue. But that's the joy of running 20"s anyway, you can run lower but usually okay anyway as you will have more ground clearance underneath!

    I'll get some poor phone pics up in a sec, but the garage is cold and dirty, and my bedroom is right beside the door! They were just there this morning waiting for the tyres (also pictured in my bedroom).

    No spacers on, just 8.5" ET48 all round. Once I get the caliper carriers they'll be getting stepped out at the front (8-10mm), so going to be close clearing the arch but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. No rubbing at the back with 225/35s and the 4 standard wheels in the boot so happy there too.

    And I know, they need cleaned (still have the tyres grease stuff on). Going to get the old wheels nice and shiny for storage, and give these a wipe in a while. Away tomorrow though, so not going to give the whole car a clean until I'm back.

    Hubba hubba, not keen on going up to 20s though. Maybe that's why they look so big.

    I can't remember if they do that style in a 19" or not, I'll check on ETKA tomorrow and find out on your carriers!
