        The first dealer already did that when I came back to them. But
  As the front brake rotor of my S4 is something very weird ( inside
   caliper ? ), thought the spacer make that Carlsson fit, but the face of
   the wheel center cannot make a contact with the face of the brake rotor

        100% agree with you, but I have to get it, because I chose
        the buy them from them myself, the place I bought it is like car part
        market. Some products are used, the new one is also very cheap
        compare to other area. No technical knowledge from seller, just
        told you what he have and you pay him, that's all.  They can make 
        any wheel fitted to any car by heavily modifying the wheels, which
        is very dangerous.    The lesson is not to buy anything in that 
        cheap market again.

                                                        thanks a lot
                                                        for all the sympathy
