    I'd say matt black or antherite grey
    That the colours i was going to get my rs6 alloys done on my lava grey.
    £195 doesn't seem bad. What company was this?

    Thanks

    Smoked chrome - that will look the dogs on RS4s.

    I seen a set of rs4s in that colour at DaveSheldons in Manchester - looked awesome!

    He's moved to Liverpool Road, near Sainsburys.

    If you go to his old shop just before deansgate, it will tell you where to go. (there's a sign there).

    But Daves a top guy - All my family have used him for around 15 years!

    you have changed your mind a million times on your wheels, lol. why not go for some quality bbs wheels and then save for the rest, if you ever decide to sell the wheels ull make gud money on the bbs,

    if you go for rs4 reps from wheel base i would try the wheels for a few months first to check the quality then get refurbed it will cost you the same

    I used this company 2 months ago (Leeds branch) they remove the tyres and completely redo the entire alloy wheels, they do a superb job. Highly recommend them

    Completely understand where your coming from - luckily im just in Manchester on weekends now but thats the reason i went for a pre-facelift S-Line as opposed to the facelift one. I couldnt justify spending £16k+ for it to be vandalised by the pri!cks that live round our way...My golf got keyed twice on my door step the tyres got sliced a few times as has the A3 but its weird - since i moved to Liverpool, not had 1 puncture lol

    Ah well - My American Pit Bulls growing up now so all shoud be good in a few months lol. Like to see anyone even take a look into my car lol

    As for quality, Dave Sheldons only sells the top notch stuff - he's never let me down or my family in the 15 or so years we've been using him..He can be a bit steep at times so do compare the prices with otehr places..

    He had some rather nice used but mint Genuine R8s and S5s in 19s though but dont think they'll fit lol

    Knew it was Liverpool something lol

    Try Jem tyres too - 01204 571 428 - they're in Worsely (10-15mins from me, not far) and i think the guys called Andy. I got the tyres off him for my Golf.

    Just ring them up and see what they got - they do refurbing too (or a shop behind them does) so ask them for a price to change colour! They quoted me fairly cheap to refurb my Tekno's on the Golf!
