      oh btw guys......how big is too big for spacers? i currently have 12mm up front and 15mm in the back....im thinking of going at least 20mm up front and maybe a 25mm in the back....it should still be safe with bolts that long? I realize my fat tyres will never clear i just wanted to throw this out there since im thinking of getting some smaller tyres ....i will start hunting for a really good end of season deal

      once you go 25 they are usually bolt on, i was running 25 and 30mm but they were h&r bolt on ones which i still have

      Are the rear S4 rotors a direct swap?

      the rear s4 rotors are meant to have the s4 caliper too i believe....only thing that changes is that I have to lose the dust shields...thats about it....otherwise it should be direct bolt on

      Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooo I just looked through your whole thread and every post I was praying you didn't change your tires. Your car looked different and just about perfect appearance wise. Hopefully the new look doesn't change much and more importantly hopefully you're happy with it.

      Well done in all (other :p) aspects.

      Hey guys, just wondering....at the moment the car sits a lot closer to my picture of perfection;

      currently she has 25mm spacers up front and 30mm in the back. final ET is 27mm front and 22mm in the rear.

      Would it be overkill to add my extra 12mm up front and 15mm in the rear? meaning i would have et15 front and et 7mm in the rear. I realize i mite have to lower it a bit more to get more camber into the front and rear. My old ones have extended bolts which would work ok with the spacers i have now that bolt onto the hub. What do you guys think?

      Very nice ride, saw it at Spring Unsprung. I am trying to set up an Audi bbq on May 12th, see if you are interested in coming out.

      And 15 and 7 are really really aggressive. I am currently running 25 front and 20 back. But i have 225 tires, so can't do much anymore.

      sounds good man but i think i have a friend's wedding to attend on the 12th....yea i know those numbers look a bit crazy when i think about them...but looking at the car it might only be an issue in the front without any fender work..

      btw what were you driving at Unsprung? im not sure if i met u or not haha

I had my extra spacers lying around....so now front is ET 15 ...rear is still ET22 however it will be et7 as soon as my rear fenders get rolled a bit....oh and i know rear needs to come down a bit...mayb even the front.....I am quite happy with how the front looks .... I took some time and did a bit of a photoshoot in 2 locations...here is the best shots i got

      thx man its one of my favourites too, i keep turning my polarizer and experiment different positions....sometimes the car's finish looks matte like in that pic....also that was in bright sunlight...i tried higher shutter speed and it just caught the bright reflections off the car and everything else looked dark.
