      While I agree, I'd rather see more ideas like this vs. the constant string of "inspired" wheel swaps across the same manufacturer which this thread has turned into...

      Yes, we need more VWs on Audi wheels.

      Care to explain what mexiflush is? I've been around for quite some time and can't say I know what this car mod is?

      Mexiflush is the step beyond stanced. It is a thin line with how over the top people go on fitment these days stancing cars for IG cred.

      I would say a car that makes no attempts to camber the wheels, with the tread of the tire fully protruding beyond the fenders has crossed into mexiflush territory.



      The term does have some racist undertone to the name, but it has been a style of modification predominantly in the hispanic community since at least the early 90s.

      I'm a sucker for everything Alpina. I hope the poke going on is from required wheel adapters and not preference. Agree this setup doesn't work, but it is an inspired combo

      ^ yeah, absolutely amazing that this thread is still going strong after all these years!

      I would have thought it would have descended into monument to intra-VW inbreeding....but it's actually been a really interesting thread!

      This car is a base model, so it had super dorky 16" hubcaps. I actually really like the 18" wheels available on the GT though!
