    The Avant Project - A Work In Progress.

    Very true, Its on my list of things to do, really keen on the Raywell JRR's in Hyper Silver, but not for another few months when funds allow.

    Any other suggestions on which wheels?

    They look really good mate, I'll be ordering the same sizes after my wheels are re-furb'd in the next week or so.
    Cheers for the info.

    Eibach Pro Springs & MTEC Black Edition Rear Discs & Mintex Pads fitted today (at last!).

    The Eibach's are sitting a little high for my liking, but hoping they will settle down over the next few days.

    Pleased with the MTEC Rear Discs (now they match the front) just need to paint the rear calipers later this week.

    Photo's to come tomorrow, after a good wash!
