    Wheels are on...Finally! (Pics)

    I finally had my wheels delivered last week! Got me some 5mm spacers all round and finally got the wheels on at the weekend!

    What shall I do regarding wing mirrors? I have a Chrome set at home? Will they sit nice?

    What should it be? Leave them as they are? Chrome? or Grey to match the wheels? All opinions appreciated!!!

    I managed to get the wheels from an Ebay shop 'allwheeltyres' - He was advertising the Nuvo's with a polished/black finish...I've been searching for the grey colour for a while, he happened to have them in stock...

    Suspension - The car's on AP Coilovers - 60mm Front / 50mm Rear...might be asking for trouble with the drop, but hey, I'll live with it!

    Dani B19 - I remember seeing one of your posts about these wheels...

    I agree. But I wouldn't go black either as that wouldn't go with those wheels - unlike some of the other recent noggys that have had blacked everything and are looking saweeeeet.

    I would go grey as you already suggested - if you don't like it then simply respray them - they're a easy enough to do.

    The wheels look good though - I didn't think they would, but they do.

    Get rid of the mud-flaps though!!!

    Thet look great, I was pretty close to buying the same a few months back.

    I'd leave the mirrors as they are though.

    I've been doing a few searches lately and not alot has been coming up - unless you want to pay in the region of 240 - which to me seems alot for mirror covers.

    There was a thread on here a few weeks back regarding a forum member supplying CF wing mirrors - don't know what happened there?

    If you're that way inclined, you could always try doing your own with CF film - although I'm not sure how good they'd turn out with all the small curves?! - but I have seen one or two very good finished examples - don't think I'd have the patience though!!

    I had some from here

    http://www.carbon-works-berlin.de/alles/teil1.html

    They sometimes sell on Ebay, but they are not the cheapest. They are proper Carbon mirror covers. There are pictures of mine if you search my posts around the beginning of last year.

    It's been parked outside for a few weeks now, got some rims for my Golf and a couple of doors for my Passat taking up the garage. Waiting for the weather to be dry before I sort it all out!
