Default Audi Sport 5Arm Rotor Design Alloys

Just bought a new Audi A6 Black Edition, noticed the wheels don't face the same direction on the left and right sides of the car.
Wondering if anyone else has the same, and/or should there be different left and right hand side wheels? As the spokes have a bit of a pitch to them, which I though may be designed for brake cooling. But the pitch is opposite left toi right sides.
Doesn't make sense to me? Anyone have any ideas?

Is that a square tire setup? If it is, you can rotate the wheels however you want because you have the same rims/tires all the way around. So, that's a bonus.

I'm guessing Audi doesn't make left/right specific rims since you purchased the car new.

The minor amount of pitch the spokes have probably do nothing when it comes to brake cooling. The inside of the spokes would actually need to be pitched as well in order to move air.
