    most wheels in the VAG group will fit.

    BMW / Porsche will need adaptors

    Jus check the ET's when buying wheels to get the best looking fitment your after, then look into spacers to get them sat nice if you want to go down that route

    If I change I might have to go for 20" and get something easier to clean than my CH reps... hate cleaning those wheels!

    yes with spigot rings. They are only a few quid. They make sure the wheel sits on the hub snugly. Mercs run 73 and ours are 57

    The Merc rims im looking at are the same spec as yours, 19's with 8.5 Front and 9.5 Rears with ET35........

    What tyre sizes are you running and what suspension????......does it rub/catch at all?

    I run 235's on the back and 225's on the front I'm on standard s-line suspension at the moment but fitting eibach sport lines springs next month with b5 cups on the front. I shouldn't have any probs looking at the gaps especially with the stretch on the tyres . At the moment not even close to rubbing because of the slight stretch.

    Not sure which Merc ones to go for yet, i have narrowed it down to 2 sets at the minute.....

    Both Sets are 19's, 8.5 Fronts and 9.5 Rears with the offset of 35.....so a decent concave look

    Either these.....

    Problem with Bentley wheels is they are quite common. It's nice to try something different IMHO
