    AVUS on A6 - have tech spec & need your experience

    Hi all, I have tried 17*8 ET35 wearing 255/40/17 on my 2000 C5 A6 2.8 Quattro. They don't fit because there is only about 2mm between tyre and suspension! On standard wheels I can fit my finger in between tyre suspension. I have found the following tech elsewhere: The B5 S4...

    Are there many A6 owners on here???

    Please add me to your list (used to have an S3 hence the name). Now have X reg 2.8 V6 avant auto. Love it. Trying to work out if I can put S6 Avus 17*8 ET35 wheels on her. Tried with standard fit 255/40/17 but they only leave a few mil of clearance. Think I might need those wheels but with...

    Wheel refurbishment

    Thanks so much for all the information everyone. Loads of research to do now, the Wheel Specialists clearly getting a lot of love, but will also have to look into BJV as well, that looks like a great price. Sadly shot blasting and aircraft painting skills are probably beyond me (and I don't...

    Wheel refurbishment

    S3 front speakers replacement

    Ahhhh, I learn more every time I visit. So something like the Fidelity 2 ohm Kappa 50.7's or 50.9's with separate mid & tweeter and a new crossover sounds about right??? (These have a mounting depth of 55mm though, so will need squeezing in). To show further ignorance; is it likely that just...

    S3 front speakers replacement

    Hi All, My first post as I've only joined recently! I have just ordered some MDF mounts from AndyMac for the front of my S3 as the original Bose speakers have given up. I've been reading the forum with interest and it really is difficult to find a speaker that will fit (depth-wise). Andy...
