My INSTANT REACTION on seeing slightly unusual wheels on an Audi is to get the 
wheel bolt lengths checked for the combination.

Before driving it.  So far, 4 out of 5 have been wrong - 3 too short and 1 too 
long.  I even had locking bolts fitted at a UK dealership that a German 
dealership instantly complained about - they were 2mm too short.
