Rear spacers look a little too much?
Agreed. If you had aftermarket wheels and that's what you needed to clear the brakes then that's fine but they are OEM wheels and so will clear the brakes with a smaller spacer.

Thanx for the feedback guys, I like the spacers fills the arches nicely .Changed my mind on buying wheels can't justify the price and when you try resell them you get peanuts back.Seriuosly thinking of exhaust upgrade and possible remap,maybe just exhaust first

I love the RS7, I recently had an Audi A7 and I grew to like the looks. Plus you get that button to pop the spoiler up which I had a tendency to leave up all the time, even when locked and put away for the night.

The same as a few mentioned, I was not keen on the 7 when it first came out, I borrowed my mates while
in Spain and recently went out in my mates RS7 and wow I love them now.
Certainly a car id like for the future and yours looks fantastic in red.

It's the arse that spoils it for me. Speed wise, amazing machine.
Funny, for me the back is the best bit as it reminds me of the rather elegant 100 Coupe from the early 70s.

OMLG. Looks like someone's bolted the front of a washing machine to the arches. Also I prefer tyres on my wheels.
