I've gone through 30 sets of wheels, 90% of them are the real deal because good replicas like Varrstoens did not have a good reputation yet back then.
I drove on TE37SL vs ES222 one after another for winter/summer and with the same tire sizes, I could not tell the difference at all.
I can't comment on ROTA's because they have nothing but bad rep.

I had a bunch of different Work wheels like bomarchers, vs-xx, gnosis series and etc and I could not tell the difference from them versus those shitty TSW wheels. Yeah I felt like a baus but in the end, I feel like a turd for spending 5k on wheels on my, back then worth 40k, 350z.

Good for you if you do! Go ahead and do take advantage of that 0.2 second in 0-100km/h and that 1.x second per lap.
But for me, I will no longer spend a shit load of money on wheels that will get me from point a to point b in the same way.

Like I said, I know for a fact that most of us do NOT track our cars.

Look at it this way:
2010 Audi A5 + $5k wheels
vs
2010 Audi S5

I hope you chose the S5.
Why so much hate on people spending good money on quality wheels? IMO, why would you replace good factory wheels with something not as good? I would have zero issues putting $5k wheels on a s5 or a5

With lighter wheels, forget about lap times, how your car responds to potholes and ruts in the road is worth it alone.

... I had nothing against real wheels, someone was like "fk reps" or something and I just defended.

And not all factory wheels are better. And I know for a fact that lots of OEM BMW wheels are prone to cracks.

And I think you missed the point that I was saying for $5k you couldve gotten a S5 over an A5.

^ I think you missed my point, why would you stretch your personal finances to the point you would have to choose this car or that car over a set of wheels?

Ok I get it, you're clearly more balling than the majority of the forum with your car list in your sig.

When I read "I would have zero issues putting $5k wheels on a s5 or a5", I interpret that as whether you have an a5 or a s5, $5k wheels are worth it. But clearly you meant it the OTHER way which meant YOU (the 0.01% of the forum) can afford whichever combo with no issue.

^ Same thing applies though... you know you're getting rid of her in a year or two, would you invest 5k for real tits or 1k for fake tits.

This means you can have 5 different girls with fake tits at the same time :O

German Car Festival Update:

Look for the "Audi Club WesterN Canada" white tent:

Where....

Audi of Richmond will be giving out the Audi Swag and they should be good prizes such as.... Audi Caps, Audi key chains (a few hundred.. yes), T-shirts, Hockey Jerseys (yes, I know... that is what the Audi Rep said) etc. Of course, there will be MORE of the prizes since Audi of Richmond will be there.

Event is on Sunday June 29.

Yes, there is NO RAIN on Sunday, 10AM and onwards.

See you guys on Sunday.
