Okay, mine are 19x9.5 ET40 (same as Sean) and they poke out a bit. I can look in my side view mirror and see the rear wheel outside the fender.

Well due to me still having the stock brakes I have to use a 10mm spacer in the front to clear the calipers. Because I don't want my car to have the wheels farther out in the front I am using 15mm spacers in the back. So mine too stick out, but not that far

I am sitting on the upgrade Audi calipers but I have to get them painted so I don't think I am going to grind my calipers just yet

That will solve the caliper clearance issues.

I am getting an almost fishy smell in my car. Which leads me to think I am burning antifreeze. My antifreeze was a little low so I topped it up on Monday. I am going to check the "cold" level after work today. There are no visible leaks or drips under the car. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Check the plastic tee piece near the recovery bottle
Mine was leaking there, replaced it with a nice brass tee :)
