    It's amazing what a new set of wheels does to the look of a car-yours look great and a massive improvement on originals. I bought the induction kit from Liam a few weeks ago-guess he's now in the Bahamas living off the profits :))

    Ooooo lovely.. :ymdaydream:

    Looks so much like my 2.8 did.. They are amazing wheels..

    If you haven't already I would recommend getting some 20mm spacers for the rear wheels.. It really finishes them off.. B-)

    Looks really great - I've always liked that style of wheel, if I were to change mine they would be on my list.

    Like the colour co-ordinated calipers too :-bd top job

    Looks loads better but as Liam says get the 20mm spacers for the rear, I put some on mine to fill the rear arches & it really does finish it off. If you do get some make sure you get the hubcentric ones they are more expensive than the universal ones but they are the proper ones for the job

    Good choice of wheels but then again i am a little biased. Think they are one of the few that are as close to the real oems, but they are made even better with the deep dish. I dont think you can get then aby more. I know liam really struggled getting them.
