So basicly it's an 2008 A5 1.8TFSI 170hp
with nav and sport leather seats,18" y-spoke wheels.

Started quickly with changing grille to an S5, along with the surrounding on the fog lights.
Tinted the windows, and tail lights.
H&R lowering springs.
10x20" Vertini concave wheels. ET35
12mm spacer in front and 15mm rear.
Changed the peddals
Black rings in the grill, removed on the trunk

From:



To:





Rear wheels



Probably gonna wait with some new picture until the winter is over.

Wheels are sick! What a transformation.
Not a big fan of how dark your taillight tints are though. Any plans for an exhaust, quads?

Been thinking about it, but figured out to use the space on the right side for an air tank, for the air ride. But still thinking about it.

Car looks super nice, congratulations.

I'm going for a similar with my A5. I'm adding 20" rims and adding the spacers as-well, now i know that 15mm back would be perfect.

Few questions:

Which H&R springs did you use, can you link them?
Are your struts stock?
Approximately how much lower did your ride get?

Thanks, more to come during the spring.

This is the springs I used because of the weight on front axle

Struts are stock, and it was supposed to be 35mm drop, I compared to a stock S-line lowered A5, and it's about 1 cm lower.

Remember 15mm spacer is on 10" wide wheels with offset 35. lower offset would make spacer unessasery..

Again, sorry for misspelling, but english is not my main language.

Your English is just fine, i understood if perfectly. ( Ich kann ein bischen deutsch sprechen. Vielleicht wird das helfen??)

The Rims im odering are 20"X9" how much of spacer would i need so they sit flush with fender and quarter panel, preety much like yours. Im thinking 20mm maybe.

I'm also going to lower mine 35mm as-well so this looks like a good fit

Thanks,

Dan

I defenitly don't speak german. So lets keep it english.

How wide spacers would depend on what offset the wheels are.

according to my calculations on 9" the offset should be 7mm to be same as mine(little poke)

Here you can calculate with wheels and offset.
Or here
Or here

If you want to compare to mine the specs are:
10x20 with offset 22 in front, 20 rear. and 245\35 tyres.

I all works quite well and youve done alot of hard work, well done.

I would suggest you change the rear number plate lamp/bulbs to the LED versions as this sharpens and cleans up the rear end when lights are on

Removed the LED license lights yesterday due to mailfunction. But the aftermarket ones are too bright. So are going oem now.
Big changes for 2013.
