Anyone got any experience with the 20" - 20 spoke alloys

How are they in real life???
-looks?
-ride?
-cleaning?

I've ordered them on the car but only seen them in pics (looked good on the configurator)

Thanks

Imho........The more spokes the dirtier they get and the more time it takes to clean. It's a fact of life I'm afraid
So glad this time I've only got 5 spokes for that aspect.

But I'm sure it will look very very nice

I would have to agree. I have those wheels on my A6 and they take ages to clean. I too have opted for five spokes.

Kev,

a few good coats of rim wax will help stop them getting so dirty and a quick rinse should clear off what does stick

I have them in my 3L......Was a little apprehensive re cleaning as my wifes A3 2L Turbo has a very similar style and they are awkward to clean. However, the new design seems to have a little more space between the double spokes than her car does and they are not too bad to do at all. As with all alloys the secret is not to let them get bad before you clean them and as Rich says, plenty of wax now and then. As for the ride, I'm sure a smaller wheel and bigger tyres would be a little smoother but they are far from bad, especially after my last car which was an RS6 on which the ride really was hard!
