Nothing done to my A6 really. Just research still regarding its rebuild. Currently researching turbos. 

Done a great job on yours.

It is major. Crank gone, turbo gone etc. So full rebuild time. It has covered 344k, so full overhaul is due to be fair. Should then last another 300k hopefully

Now that's cool. Never seen the work being done before.

That’s quite impressive. Didn’t know anyone could straighten Alloys!

At £60 a wheel much more cost effective then new or used.

I took a previous car in for tyres after damaging 2 in a pothole, found 1 wheel not only buckled but had a 2‚ÄĚ split in it too!

No reliable fix for that sadly. But luckily found a pair of 2nd hand wheels in good condition as spare was space saver of course.

Yeah sometimes there just too far gone and replacement is only way.

 

20inch alloys are difficult to keep straight tbh.

I sold my Beautiful A6 Avant. So goodbye to my A6 friends who have helped me over the years. But wait a moment, I am not going far, I am changing forum destinations. I have just purchased a Audi E-Tron GT.
