    Well its certainly eye catching, I can see the appeal but its not for me. I dont think the MK5 is ready for the `Euro look` just yet.

    Like most new gen hatches, the Mk5 is bit of a fatty and those rims look a bit lost under the car.

    The body mods are nicely tastful and the coded ED30 kit vastly improves the car in that grey colour. Not keen on the white/purple combo car, the red grill trim is too steeped in tradition to be messed about with.

    Im a huge fan of the MK5 and reckon a nicely polished example in red/shadow blue/black/candy with MONZA2s takes some beating for looks.

    cheers
    Paul

    Didn't the BTCC Sierra RS500 Cosworths use the same style wheels back in the eighties?

    Absolutely, when I had mine I had the 18"'s on it which were an awesome factory upgrade for very little money, totally made the car, the 17"'s look daft and Im not really a fan of the Ed30 wheels, they make the car look a bit complicated imo.

    Euro and US styling is totally different to ours (unless its a proper chavvy effort) what we consider OTT isnt the same as theirs, likewise I think our mods would be considered quite boring elsewhere.
