It is when his exhaust pipes are clean
Lingy, Nath....after looking really closely at my newly acquired second-hand Speedlines, who can I give them to for a full refurb in the Spring ( considering I haven't got any other wheels to put on whilst they are being done ), and what will it cost to get them back to perfection ?
The faces are pretty clean....probably 90% but not perfect, but the inside rims have pretty heavy corrosion and according to the tyre fitter two of them are slightly buckled ( although I can't feel anything at any speeds on the road ), so I want to get them back to 'As New' after the winter.....nothing fancy like a colour change, just O.E but perfect.
I live in Cambridgeshire but am happy to drive to the best place to get them done within reason, as I would rather they were done properly and it cost me a bit of petrol.
Yep, got it and fired it back NAth.
Lingy, what springs have you got to give your car that perfect drop ?
I said I was going to leave the suspension standard, but the more I look at it with the Speedlines on, the more I think it needs the wheel arch gap removed !!!!
Damn this forum......it's costing me a fortune !!!!!!
Thats what we're here for! He's on coilovers in that pic and 215 tyres as his are 9s!
Glad to help Nath ;-) .

Ah....that makes sense......looks perfect to my eyes.
Hoping to get some before and after pics of my S3 BE SB on here this week too.
Wanna sell the other set? Allthough I'd need 4x8,5x19" since the stupid legislation here in Finland makes it illegal to fit 215 on 9"Cheers mate the Blue looks sweet in the sun .And when its clean LOL
I have 2 sets of Speedlines mate .Currently on 8.5 front and 9 j rears
N8: Could you email me about the speedlines cause I can't reply your PM (not enough posts yet)

First two show the car before the grille and wheel change, and the last two shows her as she is with the Speedlines and chrome grille fitted.

I can see the merits of the changes you've made. I think the grille works well in the grey, provides a good contrast. Tempting. I went for BE as the pack price made sense, but I've already had black interior trim panels replaced with alu!
Got a flat yesterday. Ran out of rubber it seems! Embarassed to admit I thought I'd checked the tyres, but not the inner tread it seems.
So, got the wheels and tyres changed today. Just in the nick of time as I reckon the other front was on its way fairly soon.
Quick one of the winter's on the car. Colour of the wheels matches the front splitter and rear valance a treat.
It's criminally dirty, but hoping to get it washed this weekend...
Thanks again to 1inchpunch, cracking wheels. Better pics once its washed, I promise!
