Highly polished would look good, IMO. Rather than chrome. I seen these on a Grey Bolf at Inters '05 and they looked good.

Classic Audi rims, always look good. Look at mine !!!! ;-)

?150 for 4 sounds very cheap ?? I dont want to question you mate, as your car is a testament to your good taste, but do you mind me asking where they are at that price ??

The reason I ask, is, I had some ?160 ones on my car and I had terrible vibration through the rear. I ended up forking out a further ?250 on a decent set.

venom motorsport, where u get urs i dnt mind paying out more if i have to lol
I've not had any experience of Venom, I got mine of from a German supplier, www.tunershop.co.uk who stock every size under the sun and are extremely well made, quality items, all TUV approved.

The prices quoted by Venom in the mags are all +VAT, so if you have seen them at ?150, I guess that is +G&T.

One other point, make sure you state that you are fitting Audi rims and NOT Merc rims as they have a different centre bore diameter and you want hubcentric ones @ 57.1 mm. Best of luck mate. Those rims will look the dogs nads on your motor.

Mate, I have just checked the Venom ad in Golf+ and it says the adapters are for a Merc, so these would not fit Audi rims. Merecedes centre bores are 65.1 mm, Audi are 57.1 mm, the ones in their ad are also the pressed in stud type, which I would advise you to steer clear of, they are POO !!!

One other thing they are ?150 +VAT
