    Vmr v702

    I finally decided on new wheels for my RS6. VMR V702 in matte gunmetal with a size of 19"x9.5" ET33. They are on their way and I cannot wait to see them in person!

    DHall1... your car is the reason I went with the V702. These arrived yesterday in advance of the wheels. 68mm from Amazon.com.

    Glad to help

    I hope your lowered and tire choice is very tricky for the right fit

    I received my new Bilstein PSS9 from TireRack.com yesterday so I should be able to set ride height just right.

    Good looking wheel, but wish they had more of a concave/dish.

    Got the center cap situation sorted. Modified the VMR center cap with Black PlastiDip, Glossifier, and then the Audi Four Rings glued to the PlastiDip. Super happy with the result.

    Almost there... still need to put the Cupra R front lip and Bilstein PSS9 coil overs (currently on Koni Yellow) to get the ride height perfect... but... I love it!!! VMR V702 19x9.5 ET33 with 275/30r19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Simply bolted them on and didn't have to modify anything or add any spacers. Just drove it for the first time and no rubbing at all. Went over speed bumps, full wheel lock turns, and it was silent. Couldn't be happier.

    Oh nice!!! Those look way better mounted on the car. For some reason, they show more concavness. Looks killer. Good choice.

    Thanks. Yes... I blacked out myself. I previously paid someone to vinyl wrap all the trim. I don't know if he didn't do a good job or if its that my car gets a lot of use, but, either way, it didn't last long. The vinyl on the front grill was showing major rock chips and it began shrinking and peeling on the window trim. This time, I did it myself with PlastiDip, including the side mirror caps in graphite to match the new wheels. I watched some great videos on DipYourCar.com and just did it. It is pretty easy if you watch the videos and take your time. The front grill inserts and Audi logo on the front are a snap because they can be easily removed from the grills and PlastiDip'd separately.

    Almost there. Just installed the Cupra R front lip. Followed the guides from those here on the forum. Shaved the plastic so it is flush, cut the two center supports so they are even with the rest of the spoiler, held the lip up to the car with tape until I got the placement right, used a small drill with a drill stop on it, drilled through the tabs starting in the center and working my way around, used short self tapping screws (2 longer ones for the center suppors), and done! Jacked the car up to give myself a little more room to work. Took my time and it came out great. Now just need to install the Bilstein PSS9 coil overs.

    1. They look much more concave on the car. 2. Holy shit that looks damn good. I have been looking for something reasonable after having the BBS LM 20"s stolen off the RS6. These look great!!!!!!!! I was leaning towards the HRE FlowForms. But this is a very good look and really suits the style of the RS6 very well.

    Your car looks awesome!
