    i think theyre really "pretty" and "elegant". im not sure if it would be daft to put them on an S4 and make the S4 look even more unassuming?

    if they need refurbing ill give it a miss, i dont even have time to sleep at the moment, let alone refurb a set of wheels. i tried that in the past and gave up (about this time last year actually)

    my car came with a set of refurbed s4 rims that are just waiting for tyres

    didn't spot those.
    very nice. same tqs fabric though.

    I actually don't like those style recaros. tried a full leather set in my tqs and they just don't fit my tall, athletic, 16 stone frame!

    I did see some booootiful recaros from a 2007 golf gti. lovely, came with holes in the back for harness like the newer Rs4 B7 seats.

    back on topic though. those wheels are a pain in the proverbial to refurb properly.
    the diamond cut lip either needs to be painted/powdercoated over, in which case they never look right or lacquered in which case you may as well not bother as the lacquer will peel off the next time you even show it a kerb and a puddle
