[200q20v] wheel help please

Don't those new S4 rims looked really "pushed in" to the fenderwells?
They're something like ET 45, which I imagine would look a little odd on
a car that's used to ET35.  

I'd like to find either totally mint ur-S4 (16x8) rims, that look worse
than my BBS RFs but at least fit big brakes, or new A6 4.2 rims like
that forged 5 spoke 17x8 ET35.  It seems all the A6 4.2 rims are ~ET35
which are perfect for our cars.
