I think I am certain I will be better later today or tomorrow
So what are they Seamus?
Pink like your suit :rofl: although they do a candy apple red which would be good on tap drift car

Stayed with OEM and blue calliper - I have said all along I like to keep cars as OEM as possible so it made sense plus the guy in the shop said to leave them OEM.

Boring and gutless but prob for the best overall

I may regret it as I do like the black chrome with heavy silver, but there is nothing wrong with the wheels as they are (other than the nicks in them) - they suit the car and hopefully it will sell easier as and when :D

Never seen orange brake discs before; I think that paint may wear off :poke:

You really should have gone for grey wheels in hindsight :poke: :poke:

Dont f---ing start that nonsense Mr station wagon :poke: :rofl: or they will be back over there next week --- not, the silver is ok, got a bit of sparkle in it so a little brighter than OEM :thumbsup:

Yeah, I like the orange disc, sets the blue off :rofl:

To be honest I did think that when I went over there this afternoon, however, the guy said the black chrome does chip and looks crap if kerbed and he thought silver was the best way to go.

That's mostly why I went for Silver Glitter when I had mine refurbed. And because if I scraped one they could match it, whereas with Shadow Chrome (which I really liked) they couldn't guarantee a match because it needs a coat of black and another of silver so the end result might be different. Which might mean having at least 2 re-done for a match on one side!

I did say earlier gutless and bottled it - I am happy no matter what as there are no more kerb marks on the wheels anymore :rofl: I did almost say OE :D

Still like black chrome and maybe if the car was a different colour such as VO or black

liking the blue calipers - I'm assuming you did that yourself? which paint/colour did you go for?

Hell no, it was done by the garage that did the wheels - here is a pic of the front ones, to be honest when the wheels were off it was an extra £100 all in but the wheels were £60 each oppose to £75.

Total £340 wheels are normally £300 :thumbsup: colour wise I think it the same that goes on "M" cars
