Right on bud. Thx for always being awesome on this forum. I saw your new Leon Cupra. Very cool choice. :thumbs up:
And the WRX does have full time AWD like the S4 so at least I don't have to worry about winter too much. :happy:
No doubt, friend. I still have the S4, and getting back into it I...
Well... the time has come. I've immensely enjoyed driving the S4 for 3 1/2 years ago now.
Not sure if this is the right section within the forum, but it’s time for a change. Winter is coming. Bwahahaha. Just kidding.
No but for real… I’m gonna seriously miss my S4. Love the stance...
Okey dokey well here is a good up close look at these metal center cap stickers. Overall I think I chose properly. Of course I am not totally sure of their durability, especially being in a very "exposed to all elements" high rotational speed placement, but at least they match very nicely, fit...
yah me too man :laughing:
that was an oversized 3 bay garage. fantastic space.
but we moved across town last year and now have a tight 2 car. (real tight :confounded:)
if you ever have the opportunity to have a 3 bay garage, DO IT!
Gosh. Who knew there would be so many options for center cap stickers. I actually thought it would look tacky to place a sticker overtop but I didn't realize they are metal and only 1mm thick.
I ordered these in 68mm flat type.
Gonna take a few weeks to get them but I am curious to...
BH - they are actually identical measurement to the stock center caps. They just have different clips in the back to snap in place. We tried popping one off at the tire shop and the Audi caps don't snap into place on the DRAG wheels. :(
My preference to somehow find Audi caps online that snap...
By chance would anyone have any ideas for me on how to get the Audi logo onto center caps for these wheels? Unfortunately, the factory caps don't snap into these wheels because the backing is slightly different. I have thought of several ideas but am not sure which is best/most simple.
Ok well I applied Chemical Guys Max Wheel Guard to the new wheels today.
Cleaned and prep the wheels properly, then applied the green paste, then buffed it all off completely. VERY tedious job, especially on these wheels. The rotor wheels are so much easier to clean. This took me about 4...
Uploaded upside down, but here is one wheel with no flash
Same wheel - no flash vs with flash
Here is one of the "dimples" mentioned in the previous post
All with black center caps - no flash vs flash
with center caps and bolt covers
Here are a couple close ups of the type of "damage" they did to the wheels. Nothing horrible, but still unacceptable and pretty sloppy of the tech guy to do this.
And here they are all fresh re-powder coated. They did a nice job. Fantastic metallic Audi Hyper Silver with super glossy...
Right... sooooo.... in a strange twist of events, turns out they didn't need these loaners any more and I offered to buy them from Discount Tire. We struck a deal and now I brought my original OEM rotors home in the trunk with these still on the car.
Did not expect that.
So I don't quite know...
I know right? They totally look OEM. I think it's because oh how strikingly similar they look to the old RS4 wheels, which I always thought looked spot on.
:iagree:. It was Discount Tire, so they know they have to do the right thing. I left the shop and drove about 1/2 mile on the new shoes...
So I got some new Yokohama tires and the tire shop caused some minor (but noticeable) damage t0 3 of my wheels. So they agreed to have them all re-powder coated and gave me some loaner wheels in the meantime. The center caps say "D R A G" so I looked them up. I found them on their website as...
Thanks! And yah I considered doing white tips, but nobody would commit to a Glacier White Pearl paint match. If I had Ibis white I could have done it easily. Most shops were scared to mix GWP.
In the end though, I think the RS5 hyper silver looks really good. :smile new:
Oh! I see. I misread your comment. I thought you said you had an issue with the actual metal stems.
Ok so the metal stem caps screwed onto the metal stems gave you an issue.
I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks again.
Hmm. Interesting, and thanks for sharing. I was talked into them at the tire shop but I didn't do any research. It sounded like a decent idea.
Anyone else have any warnings to share on the metal stems?
Ok so I finally got the gloss black lug nuts covers and gloss black center caps installed. I know it's a subtle difference but since I have the Audi black optics package I think it looks perfect. Also just fitted brand new Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position rubber. Set me back almost a thousand...
