    Ryan, get that S3 badge off your grill!. ;)

    I'm currently running 18" mk2 RS4 reps, powdercoated grey. For some reason it wont let me insert a pic from my flickr account?.

    Anyway you can see them in 'my garage'.

    I'm thinking of getting rid of them in a couple of months though, fancy something nice in a 17 to calm the ride down a bit.

    What does your car drive like when driving hard with 19s on them? Also aimed at sandip.
    Yellow is the best colour :icon_thumright:

    The ride on my 19's isn't that much different to be honest, marginally better i'd say! I'm running uprated dampers and lowering springs though, maybe harsh with coilovers


    Thanks Ryan! Your right it's never dirty lol I try and keep it nice and shiney:)

    Currently on genuine 18" RSTTs.
    Aiming to get BBS LMs, but since they're far too expensive I might go for...

    Cant see the appeal myself, if you want a quality wheel not too dissimilar to the lm's try looking at some rondells.
