Woo hoo, super jazzed, just got mine, Tungsten SE TDI with Lip Spoiler and Monster Mats!!
Pics tomorrow, it was dark by the time we left the dealer.
Started the mods....
*Picked up a set of 255/40/19 Pirelli's
*Medium Tint all around
*Removed badges except for TDI
Picking up a set of RS6 (5 Spokes) replicas this weekend, and going with those until I can lower, and then move to a 20"
Here are picked, just washed and tinted:
Change in plans guys... decided to go with OEM WHEELs replica Sagitta wheel. Gonna do the 19" with a 255/40/19 Pirelli (already got the tires). Picking up the wheels tomorrow afternoon.
This will hold me over until I can lower it, and then I am thinking of a staggered set of 20" AMG 5 spokes!!
Yup, took a clean look, and at least 10-14mm gap, plenty. No issues at all. I ran my index finger all around without ever touching.
Keep in mind it is a 45MM offset, but the width is an 8" wheel. She came out great. As a side note, i will be going through OEMWHEELs for my 20"wheel setup, once springs are available.
I will take some pics in a few and post.
I agree, the center caps look a little goofy. Where did you get oem ones? We tried using the ones from the passat, but they would not budge.

Saw them in person today, and I was drooling, look really really nice. The OEM AMG take offs can be found on ebay for pretty ddecent prices too. But in order to run a 20, you needeither a 245/35 or a 255/35 and that tires is a little to low profile to run without a drop. the 255/40/19 I think still looks oem enough to run without a drop, so I went with the 19s for now... once I drop it... will look at the next steps.
These are all just personal opinions.. nothing against keeping this set or anyone running 19s.
