    thanks wrightey yeah its a nice colour choice i think it used to be sliver and red but that had to go so choose black and red it just works well together , yeah they do fit takes a bit of adjusting and a little nip and tuck here and there but as you can see they do fit and change the looks of the front of the car for so little outlay £24 i think i payed for it from seat bargain

    not a problem matey , they are reps dude i prefer these anyway as they are a good offset so they sit in the arches better now its lowered genuine rims would sit too far in under the arches

    how do you find the quality of them? im just a bit unsure of whether to go for the genuine ones or the reps.

    what offset are they?

    they are good quality i bought them a week after i bought the car so they are over 3 and a half years old and still fine but i have repainted them twice because i got bored i first did them because i kerbed two of them avoiding a ambulance but cant fault them really many reps are bad quality you have got to be so carefull all depends on the design of them i suppose , the offset of them is et45 standard genuine rims are et54 i think , if you can get some genuine wheels then get them the quality is obviously alot better
