Errr.... I don't think I'll be getting these then, after all. I work that out to be about £1,800 for the lot inc VAT. I don't remember seeing these wheels costing circa €2,000 as an option in the Dutch brochure I picked up last July!
Tut tut. Naughty Audi. Anyone would have thought UK bound A1s were assembled in a different factory!
It is indeed very frustrating that they do not give the option at purchase because it was a car on youtube that had these wheels that sold the A1 to me in the first place!
Does anyone know why they decided not to give UK buyers the option? (Even the Irish get to have these lovely wheels as a 700 euro ish option), i think I saw someone mention it is due to emissions?? If so, how does that work lol. I cant see them drastically increasing the cars drag factor!
The only consolation is that the 18" wheels that I ordered originally with the car are quite desirable for anyone who has the same chassis (ie new shape Polo, A1, Fabia, Ibiza) So I should be able to get a good price for them (I hope with fingers crossed!). Offers welcome!!! lol
I've had an idea. I might contact a Dutch Audi dealer in advance of me and a mate going to stay in Maastricht, and see if I can strike a deal and book my car in to have these wheels fitted. Do you think they would take my current wheels in part ex?
