    tbh for Ł700 i reckon you could find a real set if you look hard enough. if that's within budget stay the hell away from reps

    the TT ones definitely won't fit. the ones posted by crunchie are a good alternative - look at it this way, they're going for Ł825? the difference is less than 2 tanks of petrol nowadays. it really is nothing - i'd prefer to drive my car a bit less or more cautiously and have the money for genuine BBS or OEM wheels

    Save up for an extra month goddammit! What is wrong with you. At least when you come to sell you will recoup like 70% of it back.

    Well you need to do whatever Paolo(Jungleman) is doing because he's by far the richest student on ASN.

    How about just getting your lights on first..they will keep you happy for a few months and when your next student loan comes through then you can buy your wheels! haha. Seriously though, save for the real wheels. Come sell time you will come back to thank me.

    haha not the richest student by any stretch of the imagination, wish i was or id be running a lot more power and a fully sorted car by now

    wish i didnt have to get a loan, but with a course that demands at least 16 hours a day 6 days a week i dint have much of a choice

    the trick is to just be patient, as hard as it is, trust me i know its killing me at the moment with what ive got planned for the car, just sooner or later what you want will come up at the price thats right and that your willing to pay.

    if you can do a smallish thing like the rear lights now and that will keep you happy for 2-3 months while you can get some extra cash together and get the genuine article, in the long run will be better. another advantage of getting the real thing is that there will always be a long list of people wanting to have them off you, best thing with a set of wheel like BBS get the real deal. sell your old ones to help pay for them, then when its time to move on, put them up for sale on here with the proviso of a part exchange on their old wheels, that way your car will be easier to sell as its standard, you will have endless people waiting to have your wheels off you and youll have a chunk of a cash in your pocket, everyone is happy

    this is how i got a Ł1800 big brake kit for, well lets just say you wont get a deal like it again!!

    suppose if i had to get uni 5 days a week i would need a loan to i think i might try and hold out for genuine ones. just off the topic you have tt air vents on your car are the ones that fit the ones off a tt 06 and on?

    in the long run it will be worth it, for the initial bigger outlay you will still get some money back for your next project and a better quality wheel

    yea my course is a killer, if i had a job as well id never see my friends or family and id be locked up in a padded room

    yea they are off a phase 2 (new shape) TT, got them second hand off ebay, they normally go for about 15-20 each, i was lucky enough to get them for 15 each, think they come up fairly often, keep an eye on this seller we_buy_and_sell_airbags they get them fairly often and are pretty well priced

    jesus, and students moan they have no money these days, I had to wait until I was working to even own a car, you students have it all these days I can promise you.

    Those CH's are a good find, buy them Kirsty, sod the rear lights, having real BBS wheels is much better than crap fakes and a set of new lights by a long way. And then get them refurbed and sprayed silver in a couple of months time, your car will look the part after that.
