don't you think we will be able to buy the milled alloys from the parts department?
yes but if the rotors are anything to go by i wanted one as a spare when i got the car they wanted £1000 for 1
so i imagine the Milled ones will be higher so 1.5 to 2k a wheel i like them but not that much

Yeah, they'll be mega bucks if you bought them from the Parts Department.
Ironically though, having worked for years on alloy wheels as my departments project with a Japanese OEM in my last job, those milled wheels don't cost much more than a standard wheel to produce, and even given the high cost of raw material now days, they probably still only cost Audi around £120-130 each to buy

cost of production obviously doesn't come into it. Just look at the speed limit increase to 174mph. That costs them nothing to produce, NOTHING and they're charging about £1,500

....or the sport exhaust which [usually] contains one less box, hence is actually cheaper to make!

I was also told that it only restricts in top gear so you can go past in a lower one...

Whilst I'm not sure of ratios in the B9 as it has 8 gears, my B8 won't go past around 150 in 6th as it runs out of revs and needs the last gear.
Mine doesn't have the speed restrictor removed, yet doesn't hit the soft limiter until an indicated 173mph, which is a GPS 164. In reality, although it hits the limiter there, it's not got many more MPH in it anyway. We did repeated runs at a Vmax event, and that was the same result each time

Pretty sure I've seen an orange one with the RS6 wheels and thought it looked really good.

Not sure if those ones are 20s or 21s, hard to tell when they are so dark.
