Default Show us your...wheels

On a couple of the other car forums I am on they often have a few ‘show us your’ threads for a bit of inspiration so thought I would give it a go with this.

You'll find that quite a lot of members here either have the 'Final Edition' 9-spoke alloys or the Avus ones. I'm also in that group, but do have one decent photo of the S8 on a different set of alloys:
