Default Anyone want to swap their 21", 15 spoke turbine wheels for Edition One wheels?

I have an Edition One on the way, however I do not like the Edition One wheels. Does anybody have the 15 spoke turbine wheels that they would like to trade me for the Edition One wheels? Cost from Audi is the same for each wheel, so equal value, so just personal preference.

I'm totally with you on the Q8 22s! But for everyone in the same boat, just remember......I asked first

Sorry I've got the turbine wheels coming and agree with you three that they look better. The main thing I like about e-Tron styling is that it isn't trying to look like an EV. Given this, the choice of those wheels for the Edition One surprised me. Not sure if some of you have taken delivery already but if you have, take solace in already having yours vs. me not getting my Prestige for another several weeks (it's working it's way down the east coast on ship #16). But as more folks get theirs you will hopefully find takers in a larger population (especially with those who bought reservation cancellations and thus maybe wouldn't have picked those wheels). Also agree the 22" wheels on the Q8 are stunning. I'll have to leave them to the woman in the audi ad who wanted "raw meat"...

Yeah, I'm sure lots of people who paid $1500 for the turbine wheels will feel it's an "equal value" trade.

Here to add the requisite “$4100 E1 wheels” comment.

Yes i I know it’s orange brake calipers, gray ash wood trim and night vision too.

By equal value I meant the parts price was the same for both wheels. I would pay someone $1,500 to do the swap. Can you tell I don't like the wheels?

I wasn't thrilled about the E1 wheels when I put in my order. They look a lot better in person. They have more depth than what shows in pictures.

After driving the car for a week... I really like them now. The wheels are actually the thing most people comment on most when they first see the car.

+1. I thought they looked more similar to the 19" standard rims, but having more time with them, I have grown fond of them.
