I don't know why many dislike the Avus wheels--I really like
them.  And yes, must admit the new are are a bit more
aesthetically pleasing than ours..

Wait a bit and you'll prolly see a few for sale on AW soo, with
people upgrading to more sportier looks and less weightier
wheels.  But I'm just a bit leary on how they'd look on our
S4's.. ??  (Oh, I'm getting this itch to upgrade too... the
whole car, though.. '-)
