But BBS always has been the 'performance wheel of VW Products'

I know I'm saying this now, but I like the stock s4 wheels a lot already. I dont' think I'd change anything for a pretty long while, maybe other than an exhaust.

My mods to it asap:

tints: most likely 25% all around except the windshield
hardwiring the v1
clear/regular bras: I can't decide which because I know the clear turns yellow, so I may just get a regular bras for the 5 hour drives I'll have on the I5, and then just take it off. I'm not too familiar with the regular bras...are they a bitch to put on and take off? How much do they usually run?

It's all about the Stongaurd. No bra.

And I vote for Oettinger RE's.

or OZ Superleggera

or possibly BBS RGR

that pretty much sums up the best, IMHO.

LSR...is that a clear bra?

actually, it is a clear, thing vinyle type substance that you put directly on to your car.

order it pre cut for easier install, but I think it is still difficult to do on your own.

really can't even tell it is there at all.

Ya, I looked it up. Umm...I read (probably on Audiworld) that the precut ones aren't good, and other companies were advertising that they don't precut and custom fabricate ones to fit your exact vehicle. I know that sounds like bs, and probably is...but what's the story behind that?

I like how they guarantee their product to remain clear and not yellow, though.

i don't know a whole lot more about it - I would just try to find a reputable installer in your area if you wanted to do it.

I really wish my A4 had that from the factory on the front bumper - tons of little marks on that thing.

I would get the Sportec MONO/10 wheels, they are sooo sweet.

Aw, you're not gonna do away with the Avus wheels. They're the best looking for that car in any color, if you ask me. They suit the car best.

But if you are looking for aftermarket, the Sportec's look a lot like Audi's RS wheels (which is good..), and BBS may be another good option.

Try to stay away from the riveted wheels, though (read: speedline).

those were the ones I was forgetting. They are mad expensive now though. They raised the price - don't think they are worth it anymore.
