Look like A5 wheels.

DrEskimo is right, needs spigot rings to fit them as well. :)

Are the spigot rings a pain in terms of fitting, possible issues or cost?

I've heard the offset on A5 wheels make them desirable to A4 owners as they don't require spacers to sit flush with the arches, but I did wonder whether the additional rings made them a viable option for most A4 owners?

Would be great to be able to sell to both A5 and A4 guys!

I've bought the set with rings so did not need to look for them, I guess you want to get them as well if willing to sell to A4/A6 owners. And those on mine are plastic ones and no difference from OEM wheels in terms of fitting the wheel on the hub. Just the rings like to stay on wheel balancing machine so need to pay attention when visiting tyre shop. Alloys had 245/45 tyres when I bought them and tyres where outside the arches so I went for 215/40 but 225/40 would be perfect I think.

Love the colour and rim choice on your estate. I love my TQS but I wouldn't mind the AJM with fuel prices over here haha

Is the whole in the bumper a cold air intake?

Have you got a thread for her?

Only just noticed my spelling mistake of whole instead of hole in the first question. Oh well. Yes, holes aren't needed in the front bumper. Cold air intakes make little to no difference.

If you think people would be interested in a thread about my car then maybe I'll start one. It would help me out too thinking about it with some much needed info.

Wouldn't do any harm. Helps you keep a track of what you have done and people can tell your what they have done and what works for them. Go ahead get it started.
