    Much better than your old ones. Your car looks a lot newer with them on for some reason

    Hey Kris, Nice elastic bands - Kinda gives the car a more "road hugging" look to it.

    Is that a boot spoiler at the rear or do I just have bad res on my moniter ?

    Tricky

    Very nice m8, a very good choice. Next thing I'd suggest you change those nasty centre caps for some oem ones. Will look even better then.

    Nice rims. I also think the chrome detailing round the windows adds to the youthful effect. Wish mine had it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Have a look at snoops avatar.

    They are more of a matt silver or sort of like brushed aluminium, where as yours are chrome.

    Cheers

    oem centres are worlds apart from those nasty ones you get with the replica rims. I picked a set of oems up off of Ebay for about 30. Then sold my replicas for 20!! lol

    Yeah, not a fan of the chrome-effect centre caps myself... I think they look a little on the cheap side to be honest. Funny thing is, I actually got wheel-coloured centres with my reps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] I guess it's down to where you get them from...

    Car looks transformed with the wheels though Kris, I see you also went for the same rear spoiler as I have... good choice [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Nice job.

    Looking good mate - should be proud of it. Though I do agree with the others about the centres.

    Looked at you pics on MSN - how have you gone on with the Boot build ?

    Should be a lot different with low pro tyres on there, also a bit slower off the mark!

    Looks awesome though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
