    Hi guys, been away for a little while, spending money on other things so i ban myself from the forum.

    Just bought some H&R 35mm springs from DPM so im waiting for them before i get em whacked on hopefully this week.

    I have been spending alot of time on audizine and im loving the "stanced" look, my problem is that i cant find any websites (UK) that sell dished wheels or 2/3 piece wheels with changable lips and barrels.

    Anyone know where i can find some sweet wheels other than ebay?

    Thanks.

    I bought some dished BBS wheels a while back and sold them on as once fitted they looked really small. Liked the wheels but on the A4 I personally thought they looked pants.

    The wheels in question:

    Ok change of plan now, I got an email from DPM this morning saying that H&R where changing hands and anything out of stock was unavailable untill after new year so being impatient I upgraded to AP 40/30mm springs and shocks does anyone have any experience of these?

    What size are those BBS? i dont think they look that small, quite smart actually but I do see where your coming from.

    rimstyle.co.uk have a fairly good selection but you have to hunt a bit for split rims, I am leaning towards some Schmidt's! Yum!!

    Can't quite remember the model of the wheels (may have been C-S or something like that), but they were 19's. I honestly thought the standard rims looked bigger.

    Shame, because I love the way they look, espescially in the last photo :p

    Am considering some 19" LM reps off ebay....genuines cost an absolute bomb, but are the only way to get proper split rims for polished lips...

    but my first choice is these so far unless something takes my fancy more

    With a Multi spoke and dished wheel it will always look smaller. With a flat faced wheel ie s-line/rs6 wheel they will look bigger as the 5 arm's go to the edge of the wheel. Dished wheel's= 19's look like 18's.

    You have a 2.0T same as me they come with same capliers as the S4 just smaller disks. Why not get the carriers and stick the bigger disks on and get the S4 logo spring carriers and you will have S4 brakes and they will look mint. Or do what I did paint them and stick half of the fleebay sline stickers on fake I know but look great and cost me £15 inc paint and stickers ?

    think mine has the same discs as the s4 as there 220mm and the next size up in the listing was the rs4 ones the guy on the parts counter wouldnt bleave me it was a 2.0t he said it must be a 3.0 v6 or S4 i nearly had to physicaly show him the engine for him to bleave me?

    the reason im going for same spec as the rs4 cos 6 pot calipers are more efficiant and give alot more versitilatly for pad choice when i wana track day it lol plus they look alot nicer

    the RS4's are 8 pot brembos with fully floating discs, and can be picked up for £1500 new, how much is a set of the Alcon's matey? Might have to consider them if they're cheap enough.

    The special editions were fitted with S4 discs, as were the DTM's, looks much more impressive it has to be said, but still not a patch on a set of RS4s, speaking of which, there's a set of RS4 ceramics on ebay at the minute which are absolutely huge :ninja:

    There was a bloke in 2008 that was selling brand new sets off for £1290 lol, Those are Audi prices....don't get them from Audi lol. AMD used to do a kit, but since they're site upgrade it's dissapeared, although if you were to give them a ring I'm pretty sure they would be able to quote you a price. The same set on Ebay has been sold several times, so don't think it's actually been sold, more someone bought it with their own second account and registered it as sold, but it was for all four corners, not just the fronts.

    There's a set powdercoated in white available for sale on a scirocco owners forum, and other places like the TT tuning website sell a kit, tailored for the TT so a 110mm PCD with custom bell, but I'm certain they buy in the kit from audi at cost price and add their own custom bells and caliper carriers, so give them a ring, I expect they'll also be able to sell you a set prior to their modifications.
