      what size tires you running on these?

    9. 02-02-2012 07:59 PM #9
      So clean. Seriously wasn't a fan of MKVI's on bags but I definitely am now with those wheels it just looks right. How much would a wheel/tire setup like this cost if you don't mind me asking?

    10. 02-02-2012 08:04 PM #10
      Wow!!! Perfect, if it was mine all I would
      add is Euro headlights and it would be done.

      Haha..so you know exactly what i mean..hopefully with more aftermarket support that we are getting bit by bit will help out...and then comes the money pit....i told myself i wouldnt spend any money on this car like i did the s4...and there goes that..

      Props for the quality of it for sure. I'm a fan of air, but with LMs on an new GLI, I'd rather see a really nice handling static set up. But either way, props from me. And hey, you're not the only B6 S4 swapper!

      Welcome to the club! Roll the front fenders ASAP. 9" ET42 has 1mm more clearance than the 8.5 ET35 that I test fit on mine yesterday and they tucked nice. But my fenders are rolled to allow the it.

      haha i really only miss the seats and exhaust tone..it's all negated by my lack of concern every time i go outside and start my car each morning and am not listening for timing chain linkage rattles and ****. i'm a student and my car sits outside in an urban area so it was just pointless to have an S4 that i had to worry about all the time. a fun experience, but not missing it too much.

      makes sense...i think it's because of all the time and money i spend working on that car..it just grew attached to it..but it was time to go..maintenance is crazy...and don't even mention the timing chains...and if it's not the timing chains, it's the scorched cyclinder walls..
