    Anthracite is the one against silver paint. Not black.

    Genuine BBS Golf GTI Edition 30 18'' Alloy Wheels A3 on eBay (end time 23-Dec-10 12:23:24 GMT)

    There's a link for the same wheels I have. They're basically BBS CHs but without "MOTORSPORT" written on them. I love them and they're less than half the price of the wheels you wanted (tho I'd make him an offer of £450 and see how that gets on). That leaves a good amount for some decent rubber. When you change your mind just refurb them and you'll get your money back easy.

    They have different build quality, they are spun not cast

    I don't even know what that means lol, but it doesn't change my opinion on them one bit! They look good. If it's a weight issue then I wouldn't be buying BBSs anyways, and if it's a strength issue they'll be tough enough because Audi would have ensured as much

    It means they are made in a different way, so they aren't as strong as genuine BBS CHs.
