Hi All (I'm New Here)

I recently purchased a pre-owned (as per headline)… it came with 19inch tires on.

I took it for a major service and was advised to replace brakes and discs (front & rear) and change the tires to either 17's or 18's.

Now I have ordered the following:
1. EBS Brake Kit upgrade; pads and rotors,
2. Wheels,
3. Tires 255/45R18

After I have installed all of it. The next step will be a stage 1 tune/map and downpipe.

Now, I still want to wrap it "matte dark charcoal", coat calipers yellow.

Then the rest of the exhaust pipe needs to be done and change the tips to the size of the new RS6.

Well...that's my thoughts of what I wanna do.

Any advise if mine is messed up and which alternative would you prescribe?

Thank you... I will accept all the help I can get.
Sounds like a good plan, the 18's will ride so much better than the 19's. You've made the right choice there, the 17's look a bit small on the A8.

I am currently working on the 2.5 and 3.0 TDI tuning articles for those engines so please stay tuned.

Remap and turbo upgrades are the best mods you can do on that engine, you might need new injectors/fuel pump if you go for lots more power, but the standard setup works really well on just a remap.
