    Right the RS4 Replicas that James (MarriedBlonde) bought from SouthCoast Wheels are showing a problem with soft paint - basically I am starting to get lots of stonechips appearing.

    So I have a number of options :

    1. Replace them with Mom FXL One in black

    2. Refurbish them in Anthracite.

    3. Refurbish them in Silver.

    4. Refurbish the original S-Line Alloys (RS6) in Anthracite.

    5. Look for a different set of Alloys.

    So looking for some opinions to help my choice.

    I'd go for the refurb if cost effective.

    On a separate note - any news on the DSG pedals for the wifes Jetta J or are they no longer sourceable sorry to hijack the thread - Spin

    What happened the the RS6s that came with your car MB?

    I'd say stick with stock by the way.

    Right got my wheel types wrong. Ooops

    I currently have the new style RS4 reps on the car with the stone chip issue.

    I also have the original S-Line RS6 style OEM alloys, only one has a minor curb mark.

    So the poll (not that anyone has used it) is wrong.

    So the concensus seems to be to get the new style RS4 rep refurbished in Anthracite ?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    I'd just like to add that the kerbing on one of them was done by the wife when the car was 5 days old!

    She came to pick me and a mate up in the early hours, managed to drive the car about 10 metres before being pulled over by the cops and then dinged a a rim.
