    Those wheels are nasty. Look alright on a Lambo, but a decade + 8L? Not so much.

    Only 1bhp per spoke? I was quoted better gains then this!! The added weight means the car sticks to the road better, correct?

    correct. and i was aware that the design of the spokes effectively made the wheels a turbine, giving the car extra boost! 200 club here i come!

    These bad boys will give me 88bhp, which pushes me into the 300 club, even more if I get a spare wheel

    Did you hear about that K&N carb for the 1.8 Golf GTi - each blade in the filter gave the car 1 extra horse.
