Default BMW wheels on an A6 Quattro?

Considering a 2006 A6 Avant but the wheels look boring to me. I had a wild thought that a set of BMW M-Parallels would look killer on it. Is this even remotely possible?

No. Different hub size and bolt pattern.

It is possible. You would have to purchase a set of wheel adapters. You would need 4 separate pieces, some manufactures sell them in sets of 4. You would have to get the bolt pattern of BMW wheels which I believe usually are 5x120 adapted to 5x112.

Pretty much

BMW wheel bolt pattern to your Audi's bolt pattern.

Feel free to send me a message if you need more help.

BMW wheel bolt pattern is 5x120. You can possibly do the hub adapters depending on how much more it will push the wheels out.

Why not just use the Audi S line split 5 spoke wheel, which is a similar but better looking wheel in my opinion.

adapters will push the wheel out toward the fender lip far too much to remain viable without fender mods. best to find something else

I agree. You can get the thinest adapter available and it might work without going too far past your fenders but I recommended getting an Audi pattern set of wheels and avoid a huge headache.

Yeh, I have found Audi wheel analogs that are close enough to the M-Pars to make me happy.

But then I just discovered Hartmann-256-MA:M 5-spoke Anthracite wheels with polished lip and I like those a lot too. Choices, choices, choices. :-)
