Nice tidy motor!
Have to say recently changing from 225 40 18 to 225 45 18 the difference is night and day. It is so much more comfortable and compliments the bilstein shocks and eibach springs more than the 225 40s did.

The other day a chap with a Audi A4 B6 said he was catching the undertray , not surprised he was on eBay specials Jom coilovers slammed on 215 35 18 .

That's a 75.25mm profile compared to your old 225 40 , 90mm profile .

He still maintained it was surprisingly comfortable , yeah right :-j

If he drove mine he'd think it was a magic carpet !

Is all the smoke from the straight through, catless exhaust and egr delete?
2004 V6 TDI gone and replaced with a 2011 TDI Sport DSG which has gone too.

That looks good bud
Mines on audi speedline wheels with 215 35 19 and cheap coilovers and rides really well obviously is a little rougher than the 205 55s it came on but lots of people comment on how surprising smooth it is
