First I must appologise to Wez, saw the RS6 wheels on his ant had to have some.

Only gone for 18's cos I was told that the 19's kill your acceleration, has anyone else found that?

We found that 19's compared to 18's

kills accelaration (tiny bit)

make the steering feel heavier, slower

make's the power steering pump whine (extra load)

makes the car feel slightly unstable under heavy braking (tramlining) and excess nose dive

Plus points:

Looks better! hahaha

No need to apologise mate. They look great! But im afraid they do effect the driving a bit. When ever i think about changing to 18's i just look at them again. It soon changes my mind!

You have a lovely car there!
