      I have interest in some Rotiforms, and of course seeing if any pricing can be hum... haggled or any discounts can be applied...and at least price matched to other Rotiform dealers.

      Rotiform BLQ 19x8.5 5x112 Machined, ETs in ??? for Audi A4 B5 Front Track (I will not accept poke , looking for flush or just in the fender -> preferred) 35ETs maybe??

      I have brand new rubber, mounting done there as well?

      What you save in haggling (if any) you will pay in sales tax - so you may as well order them from the guys at fifteen52 - You can skip the sales tax and they will probably give you the best price.

      Gotta say I felt negative feelings towards the company before this, and after looking at some of the stuff online it gets even better.

      So Vivids that bad?

      I mean, they wouldn't be doing work, just basically straight up buying rims unless they mounted the tires for me.

      What's the deal with them?

      I not set on Vivid, yet Rotiform BLQs.

      Did you try dealing with Rotiform directly?

      If not,Try going to http://www.redline-motorworks.com/category_s/1590.htm and talk to Andrew. His company is a legitmate company that mostly deals with the MKV community.

      I worked for Vivid for several years and to be honest the bad reputation that Vivid got was from some bad sales people that were dealt with many many years ago...but it is also sometimes customers that expect more than is imaginable. Your experience is what you make of it. Sean McGill is a stand up guy and the man to talk to over there.

      OP, I hope you know that rotiform has their barrels made in china, their faces are forged... I just meet a guy the other day out here in Dallas that cracked all 4 barrels. Also build time is like 5 months but I think thats common on custom built wheels.

      So I got ahold of rotiform today to ask about your wheels, they do not make a cast for 19" blq's, so you would have to get forged, which would have to be custom made, costing a lot of money. He sai they should have a 19" cast for the wheel soon, he didn't specify when though. If you really want I can get you a price on the forged, or you can wait for a cast.
