    Nice to see another 6 newbie.
    Have a great drive back from Melbourne, and post some shots soon.
    I've had my 6 for about 10 weeks now, and this forum has been an absolute goldmine.
    Enjoy.

    Pete.

    Re wheels, 20s are pretty big. Would suspect some pretty serious guard rolling would be needed, but I'll let others more knowledgable in these things confirm/correct

    they will fit without rolling but I wouldn't have more than 2 in car.

    If you lower you will need to roll guards

    Happy Motoring

    Lol, I have a Gen 1 *custom limited edition MPS 6, complete with black MPS rims and custom MPS intake* , just wanted to post some snazzy pics of GEN I vs GEN II but the links keep breaking on the GEN I image, have to get a new one every time!

    ok ive had confirmation they do the wheels to suit the car, with a 225/40/20in tyre, and at a pretty decent $$ figure too!

    ill get proper measurements, offsets etc. and heres a pic of the wheel.

    i am inclined to lower the car but wont need much as the rim size is larger.

    Hey Mark do you live/work in the Noarlunga area? I've seen a black MPS6 with black wheels drive around there a bit. I work at Autobarn, come see me if you are after anything for your cars
