    Hmm..

    I have a big urge to go low with some nice sparkly BBS wheels..

    Really like the Audi Mesh wheels but cant find the right size, Im after 19x8 ET52 so I can slam the car without the rubbing issues!

    I don't think they made them in 19x8? - thought it was just 8.5 (BBS) and 9 (Speedlines)?

    I could get you some 18" RS's in 5x112 like the above that would clear brakes but they aren't cheap at all.

    On air you could raise it and adjust the pressures to tailor the ride (from soft to hard at hell and anywhere in the middle), as well as adjusting the height.

    It's possible to make cars with air suspension handle as well as coilovers, just costs stupid money. (That's if it is on air)

    I'd rather have a big turbo than some fancy wheels mate, you do right

    Give me a shout when you're looking for wheels again and i'll give you a hand....offer still there for you to try mine too.

    Blimey - different opinions is what makes us human but I genuinely wouldn't drive round in that if it was given to me for free. Looks like Shrek has sat on it - then got up and chucked rotten tomatoes at the wheels. Hideous.

    Noone on here though so what does it matter?

    Jonny posted it here to get people's opinions. If it was his own car then I'd just say something subtle or nothing at all.

    You've got to be cruel to be kind sometimes L6ON. If he does that to his car and everyone just says 'That's great mate' what will he do next ? Decorate it in vomit ? If opinions are asked for (which they were) they should be given honestly. If they're not asked for they shouldn't be given at all. I obviously wouldn't walk up to him in the street and say to him: 'Oi your car looks ridiculous' as that would be offensive (and true).

    I like it, only thing i'd change is the centre colour.

    I think OEM+ is for people with absolutely no imagination at all......there I said it.

    Looks like the suspension has collapsed and those wheels look like roulette wheels.

    They're a design classic.

    My mum drives a sportback and doesn't get them either so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    There are lots of design classics - doesn't make them any good. Those wheels, design classic or not, look like 4 of these stuck on the side:



    I agree that OEM can be modified - but who wants to end up like this (which is where the line between imagination and bad taste is drawn - a line that Golf has definitely crossed).

    I can see why people go for certain cars, even if I don't agree with their tastes.
    That grey Golf at the top of the page though.
    I'd have thought that was universally viewed as comical.
    It's just ludicrous.

    Good - then you can see where we're all coming from. The relationship is one of bad taste and a keen eye for the grotesque.
