Is it possible and how is the drive feeling compared to the 17'' wheels?
I think the 18'' wheel will make the relatively soft 2,4D a bit harder.

You can't order the 2.4 D with the original sport suspension.
Anyone know if Chiptuners are testing now their prototypes for the 2,4 D.
I think 200PS and 400 NM should be no problem.

Btw. Which color do you prefer?

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.

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.
