RL - can i get a little info??

That wagon you have pictured (nice pics, BTW): I didn't know VW had such good-looking factory 17s! What are they called and do you know what model the wagon is (1.8T, 6 or 8)? Any idea if or how the wagon was lowered? Appreciate the info - I've decided on 17s and that's one of the best wheel/lowering jobs I've seen (a lot of the 18s here on the site look *great*, but I need more sidewall).

TY

Are you asking about the pics I posted? Those wheels are from a W8 Sport Package. The Sedan is mine... :D and the Variant is Nonerock's, we both have the Eibach Pro-system.

The Audi wheels are off a 2002 A4 Sport package. I have vw center caps that I ordered through Liberty VW part number 3BO 071 213 666.

Yeah, audi wheels RULE. How much do they cost? They should be cheaper than aftermarket rim brands right? Prob I should save my money and get OEM audi instead of any other brand :) sweeeet car

Just the thread i was looking for, as I'm keeping my eye open for Audi rims for my 2000 variant. But heres the thing, I will NOT be lowering as its a family car and I also need all the snow clearance I can get. I only have stock 15" adelaides on now, and I 'm looking for 16 or 17s, but want to make sure it looks alright. Are any of those pics with 17s at stock height?
Also, what did you guys find in terms of around town drivability and fuel economy with the larger rims? (I have a V6)
Perhaps this should be its own topic, but keep the pics coming.
