Nice! So how are you liking those wheels? Here's an interesting little fact - did you know that Audi charges FIFTY DOLLARS for one single center cap?! Holy crap! I guess I'm glad I couldn't find an authentic Audi cap to fit my wheels - $200 just for center caps is pretty absurd.

Okay, so...the wheels are on. The center cap has been a complex issue. For now, I've got a self-made Audi version on. I'm thinking it's not going to hold up though. I took the TSW part that came with the wheels and used Gorilla glue to attach the Audi logo piece to it. Since it's a domed piece, I only had the edges of the circle to glue to the center cap.
In anticipation of these not holding up (or the Audi piece flying off while driving), I ordered another set of the TSW center caps and metal stickers with Audi logo. That combo will probably ultimately be a better design that will last.
But for now....here they are (pardon the center pole in my garage - unsightly)!

Tomorrow.....I pick up the newly painted front vents. Then I think all my mods will be complete!

I like the stock wheels (just a tad flashy for me), but would have liked the "rotors" better. Not enough to spend the extra cash though.

Glad you got them mounted. They look great! It's amazing how wheels can change the whole look of a car. It is definitely a softer look and not so "hey, look at me" so to speak. I hope the center cap situation works out for you. Those can be a real pain on aftermarket rims.

I hate to use language in general or on a public forum but those wheels look real badazz on your ride.

Nice. If the center caps don't stay on, automotive silicone adhesive should do the trick. They will fill the void due to the domed nature of your cap and increase the contact area. Did the same to my ALFA 5 years ago and they haven't budged.
