Yeah, that's why I'm they seem kinda sketchy to me... I'm guessing if one broke already it'll be more likely to break in the future?

Good thing is, you can usually find reps for pretty cheap online...


Ninja edit: he just said he'd take $350...

Been fixed If it was done right, no problem.

I was going to buy these and get them fixed, until the poop hit the fan around here. With all the repairs to the van, the 318, and washing machine I can't afford them now.

Man that sucks, I loved the rims on the M5 when I had it


The ACS reps are 18x8.5, and they came off a 96 m3 with no spacers, etc...
So what size tires should I be looking for?

You mean 235/45/18? Seems like I'd need something smaller than 45?

Butt......here's the problem, you will end up spending money on the sh!t Audi, and you'll forget about your E36, which is a man's car.

I have 225/40/18s on my 8.5 inch wheels and they stretch, but it's not an obnoxious ugly stretch. I go wider but I have no room.

See what I mean?


Ken, got the exhaust shipped today, definitely. But I'm even more pissed now. I probably can't get a refund for the first label I got because it's been more than 48 hours since I purchased it, yet I purchased it for the shipping date of Tuesday.

And now I shipped it at UPS and it cost $130.

So now I spent $200 to ship an exhaust I sold for $200

But it's supposed to be there Tuesday Ken, sorry for the delay.

No its not the one im getting but that would be it in the summer...



the audi is a little slower because you have to be in the right gear and the launch is tricky because of the awd..

but if you rip through the gears its probably around the speed of my car maybe i can get a walk or a run on it if i shift quickly enough...

My plans are selling the ds2's and putting the 264's back on and doing cams with the vanos controller before spring..

and then put vmaxx coilovers on the a4 (450 bucks) and paint it (700 bucks)

already is modded and has new wheels and tires and clutch...
