I am still a college and I don't have much money to spend on my car. However, I really want to change the 15" factory rims (they are reall small in my own opinion). I went to ebay and searched that there is a seller selling replica rims which are affordable. I read the feedbacks and think that the quality is not too bad. Is it a good idea to change it? Or should I stick with the factory 15" rims? Thanks for your advise.

A lot of people run replica wheels, they're really not a bad idea. Maybe a bit softer than an actual OEM set but not much different beyond that. If you're going to buy some replicas though just make sure they're decent ones. This week i am going to buy a set of 18" B5 RS4 reps from someone local off craigslist so i don't think running replicas is a big deal. Of course if i had a lot more money, i'd go for the authentic ones.

Thanks for your advise. The 18" RS4 ones really attracts me. I think I will get a set soon. =]

Choice #2 really look good on a B5. I run them personally, and have autoxed them multiple times (heavy though).

I love them, and think they should have been an option from the factory, they just look great!!

I think the second one suits B5 more.
The first one is better on a B7.

Another question. Should I go for 17" or 18"?

That depends, 18's on stock non-sport suspension may look kinda big and outta place.

Then I think I should go for the 17" as I don't have money to lower the car. haha
And the tires for 17" are cheaper too.

Yea you really cant go wrong with the 17's. Even If you do lower it down the road, they still look hot. Plus there a touch cheaper, along with the tires

I will probably get them after my current tires are "finished." Don't wanna waste them. Haha.

I don't have the sport suspension and lowering the car is too expensive for me. I think I will just go for the 17's =]
