    How did you get the quattro logo so perfect? A stencil or template?

    No they came like that and I just got hot air gun on wheel then applied the logo with heat over top for a few minutes then removed the over layer of decal and that's it done.

    I bought 2 sets as the first ones went pear shaped as I didnt apply any heat lol think they go well with the wheels tried to do the Audi rings on centre caps red aswel but failed badly as I'm no expert in the paint department so that went out the window lol but may get them done in near future !!

    To be honest mate I would do it yourself I was going to get some one to do mine but then a guy at work had a orbital/locking sander(DA) so I got the edges right past the original polished rim, removed sanding paper of DA an put some elbow grease in to the spokes got them nice and smooth went over the full rim with a scotch pad and got air line blower to remove all the ****, then preped the wheels leaving hot air gun on a stand blowing over wheels then whilst spraying applied heat with the hot air gun on a low speed and in no time the wheels started to show there true colours. Places charge £20-£50 a rim even more in some places it cost me all in all say £40-£60 for primer, paint, lacquer and decals iirc.
