    You don't make it easy! The Oz are purposeful and stealthy, but the RS6s have the bling effect. If it is for show I think the RS6s are good. But by the same token, those that know are always going to respect the Oz as being the better rim. Nice to be making that choice though. :icon_thumright:

    Edit: have you chopped the tints on the bottom pic? :uhm:

    The Oz are much better imo, as you say more purposeful.

    I was saying this on another thread about silver for sprint blue black just kills the car's colour....

    The rs6's look very nice mate id go with them definatly

    Im not into 18s niether 19s will always look better they just fill the arch nicely , gotta be silver all the way for sprint blue :o.k:....

    No No to RS6,relicas no way.To heavy

    OZ Ultraleggera is amazing,strong and light,make them shiny silver if you don like the dark style.But dont leave OZ, They will also stay in shape if roads are bad or if you hit a pot on the roads or a track

    OZ ALL THE WAY.......

    thank you all for your nice comments and compliments...

    as for the OZs infact i was expecting much more difference from those wheels but i am not satisfied from the performance... they are very light and in theory you should get better steering response better throttle response better braking etc. but in real life you dont notice any of them.. we tested oz vs rs6 reps and get no difference in side by side accelerations.. also tested them at the track and got no better times...
    may be a prof.race driver can get all out of it but not amateurs...
    i can say it doesnt worth the high price you pay...
    and also light wheels effect the sense of driving in negative way, you get a feeling as if you are driving a cheaper car especially at the bumps and road imperfections...
    the best thing for the ultraleggera is it has good caliper clearence for BBK..

    Quite a hard choice. But i like the colour on the Oz ones an d i do like the RS6 ones. Hmmm if i got the RS6 ones i'd have them in the same colour as the Oz alloys :)

    RS6 reps for me, looks stunning. Where did you get these from,they look really good quality for reps.

    If you didn't notice any difference from the reduction in unsprung weight, I'd go with the RS6 reps without hesitation. They look MUCH nicer in my opinion. The OZs are nice, but as Blazin said, the dark OZs don't suit the sprint blue.
    I reckon they'd look pretty sweet on an ibis white car

    As you are more concerned with looks than weight etc I voted for the RS6 reps as they look amazing, in an ideal world you would have 2 sets of wheels, lightweight 18" for track stuff or dodgy winters and the reps for the Wow factor.

    Just looked at the pics again, definetly RS6 they really suit the car, even though the Oz are an exceptional wheel they make the car look cheaper imo, I am about to sell my spare set for the same reason, I just can't get on with black wheels, the benefits may well be there for my track events but if I hate the look of my car with them on I'd rather do without.

    the rs6 look stunning on the car, suit it really well, but the OZ's make the car look mean and make it look like it lives on the track, which i like. personally id have the rs6's tho, it shows off the car more which is what your after!

    The RS6 reps are really killing it for me. the Oz's cheapen the car for me. The 2nd picture looks so nice is any of that photoshopped ????. i like the 1st picture at the Turkish track is that a track day???. Back on subject now if your looking for some lightweight alloys why not try the 0z's Speedlines. I think they look much nicer[​IMG]

    what ??? there's different make of rs6 reps but ive held some also and they were that light they were that light i didnt buy them because i though they would snap at the first pothole ,

    maybe you need the gym because they were to light to me thats why i went for the rs4 reps they were much heavyer guess theres a few rep makers making these wheels eh ....
