      Hey everyone. Been on vortex for a while but finally just registered and wanted to introduce myself. I used to have a 07' GTI, not really any mods though. Just tint, intake and powder coated the wheels black. The mileage was getting up there and I was getting bored with it so I recently traded it in on a 2009 A4, Premium Plus, white with black interior. So far I love it to death. Not as peppy as my GTI but I'll get it there eventually.

      So far I've gotten it tinted and picked up a set of VMR's new V705's in 19x9.5, in gunmetal. They look sick, I'm extremely happy with them. VMR was ridiculously helpful all around. Had them shipped direct with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 245/35-19's. Only problem was they forgot to install the TMPS, but they're covering the cost to have them shipped to me and installation fee. I also just received a set of H&R Sport Springs for it. They're not installed yet though, there's a boat taking up my entire garage at the moment so I have to wait a couple weeks for my mechanic to free up his shop.

      Anyway, heres a few pics taken with my iphone. Not quite "epic" but hope you like them:





      It was about to pour, but couldn't wait to put them on

      Thanks man! Hopefully next week. There's a boat taking up my whole garage so I can't get in it for a while. Waiting for my buddy to free up some space in his shop. It's driving me nuts

      Thanks!

      My brother-in-law has those tires on his Cobra and swears by their traction and tread life. It was an easy choice!
