Default 18 Avus wheel refurb plus new tyres

I picked up the S8 on Friday after it having a full wheel refurb and 4 new Goodyear Eagle F1s fitted by Prestige Wheels in Birmingham. Really good guys and a decent price, 60 plus the VAT per wheel plus 119 per fitted Goodyear. 12 month warranty on the wheel finish too which shows they're confident on the finish they give.

First impressions are the ride is much improved. Having 4 matching tyres on a quattro is always recommended. None of the old tyres matched, plus they were dangerously word.

Just need to get the tracking sorted, then it should be perfect.

Car was also detailed by Drayke Fields just round the corner from Prestige. Again another decent chap who does a fair few Audis. I went for the single stage which hasn't removed all defects but this is my 'family' run around so wanted a decent level of correction plus colour and shine restored to the paint. It's not a show car after all...

Really pleased with the results. Money well spent. Car really does look fantastic. Pics for you all...

Hi - what discs do you have in there? I'm looking for an upgrade and those look choice.

I'm now the owner of this car, bought it from MrHooky back in Feb last year.

Looking back through the receipts it has Turbo Groove Discs from EBC (PN/GD1427).

Didnt note the post date doh - but am surprised at the lack of response at the time which made it seem like a new post after Mossyboy posted about the discs.
