quick questions, right now the car is sitting on what seems to be 2002-ish A4 17" rims. were there any mods to get that rim on the 200q20v, or it just bolts up?
reason for asking is the tires are shot - i was wondering if i could just find some stock 2000+ S4 rims with decent tires instead of blowing like $650+ for new tires on the existing rims.
