    And so it starts, and i was thinking of moving it on.

    Well just got the alloys refurbished yest by Alloy Wheel Refurbishment | Refurbish Alloy Wheels | Refurbish Wheels | Alloywheel Repair | Refurbished Alloy Wheels in Cumbernauld, i did fancy new alloys but since i have pretty good thread on the current tyres the cost just didn't seem worth it. And i would clearly want to go bigger 18" or maybe 19"

    So changed them from this.

    tempted to get dark wing mirrors as well, for the drivers side wing mirror electric mechanism is broke.

    think i have opened a can of worms tho, for tempted to get upgraded suspension and lower it a bit... slippery slope eigh.

    Looks good. I prefer anthracite/titanium on silver cars but I do like that. My neighbour has an S3 and has just vinyl-wrapped the roof and wing mirrors in really dark grey to match the wheels. Looks wicked.

    Definitely a slippery slope. I've put a ban on buying stuff for mine until I've paid for my wedding. Turns out car things and wedding things aren't as important as each other

    I hear you JudderMan luckily i have done all that, but reason i have this is we are moving house was *suppose* to be a run around car..

    I like the idea of wrapping the roof too, but only issue is i have bubbling on the rails so really should get all that fixed first. But then i think i should get a full respray but is it really worth it?

    Good good, once this wedding is out of the way that car of mine won't know what's hit it

    If the rest of the car is good then just mask off the rails and treat them/paint them, then wrap it. I guess it would trap air/moisture and make it worse if you wrapped it over the rust and you wouldn't know about it.

    Nice change!! Was looking at getting my wheels redone at some point but like you say and well I know from my old car once you start changing things its hard to stop as you keep going "oh just this little bit" oh and maybe that....

    Still I like the silver and black on it!!
