I beg to differ- In Boston two days ago, I saw a silver A4 with a full
AvantGarde body kit and 18" Brabus (yes, the Mercedes tuner) wheels. It
looked lowered about three inches (deep side skirts had much to do with
it, no doubt), and the car looked absolutely _AWESOME_, looked just a
hair shy of "touring car" low. BTW, tires were 225/40ZR-18.
