And here is the story on how he made the wheels.

Wheels are a BBS custom. I did a long in depth section on the thread if you fancy a nosey My Cooper S
The quick breakdown of it is

Bought cheap BMW 7.5x17" 328i Sport wheels.
Took a hacksaw to them and cut them in half
Had new dish sections made and drilled them to suit to make them 7.75 and 8.75 ish wide
Bought a lathe and made 20 plug to fill the 5x120 holes then got them welded in there.
Redrilled the new 4x100 stud pattern and added spigots then had custom bolts made to suit
Bolted them on and pimped around looking at my self driving past shop windows waiting for them to explode or fall off...


Here is the thread to the link. hes done a good bit of work on this car .

And this deals with the wheel mod

You guys (by you guys I mean me) need to learn your Audi's. The black car on 3pc Rotiform's IS AN AUDI A5 and I'm an idiot for glancing at only one part and not paying attention to the whole car. Hahahaha.

Rear tail lights on the A7 slope forward and has a more pronounced line from the rear tails to the wheel arch.
