    I saw something on Face book about something im not going to mention as it may or may not be involved but...
    I stopped coming on here for a while as it can feel a little strange at times... This is one of those times... we are all pushing towards the same goal... No points for getting there first or last...

    Officially the times were when the car was only running 265bhp. Now that's insane. Car hasn't made it down the strip this year.

    They are only worth what people are willing to pay for them.

    And I'm willing to pay £300

    No no. I wouldnt fish Jo unless he tried to fish me lol.

    They are Jo considering you can get much nicer/better wheels for that money with tyres. That might be your value but in the real world no one will pay that for some basic Porsche wheels which is sad to say for your sake. Which reflects in the fact you`ve still got them and they`ve been for sale over a month now?

    I hope you sell them for what you want but it seems like its a bit of a struggle. They might be rare and refurbed but they`ll only sell for what people want to pay for them.

    I found this out when i tried to sell everything i stripped off the A4. I thought it was stuff which everyone wanted which it actually was and i priced them pretty well and wasnt greedy. Undercut a lot of other things on ebay and still wouldnt sell until i reduced it down loads and ended up selling things cheap and made like 600quid less than i originally advertised.

    I hear what you're saying Jase, I'm in no great hurry to sell in all honesty, and I haven't really been pushing them, bad time of the year and all that.... They can just sit in my garage until the new show season, next spring.

    I had some 18's of the same wheel and let them go way too cheap !
    But i had been made redundant the day before so wanted to get some money together soon as.
    If im honest the colour may also not suite everybody.
    But as said, if you lucky enough to be in no rush... they will sell in spring

    I sold a set of 19" MTM Bimotos with budget tyres for £950 on here Dave, if someone wants them, they will pay the asking price. What you guys don't know is the amount of PMs I get asking where I got these rims from, but now they are up for sale, I have 3 enquiries, only one is serious.

    Because they dont want to pay £1000. Where as everyone seems to love MTM`s for some reason and are willing to pay the money to get something they love. What you have is basic looking porsche wheels refurbed in a more suitable fitment. The actual wheel design and so on isnt that popular in the grand scheme of things.
