Is it possible and how is the drive feeling compared to the 17'' wheels? <BR>I think the 18'' wheel will make the relatively soft 2,4D a bit harder. <P>You can't order the 2.4 D with the original sport suspension. <BR>Anyone know if Chiptuners are testing now their prototypes for the 2,4 D. <BR>I think 200PS and 400 NM should be no problem. <P>Btw. Which color do you prefer?<P>

Moving from 17-inch to 18-inch wheels will definitely make the ride harder depending on what the aspect ratio is and what kind of tires you are using. For the United States, the 17-inch rims use 235/45/17 wheels. There have been some reports from owners that these wheels have been rubbing. If you do use 18-inch wheels and the aspect ratio goes down from 45mm, then the ride will be harder for sure.<P>In the US, we don't get the same colors as in Europe, but personally I like black, platinum green, silver, and ash gold. Some of the other colors are nice as well.<P>-Drew
