    I was going to keep this one under my hat until I could agree a price with the seller, but as you asked....

    I'm going for these wheels. Kinda like the modern look wheels so these fit the bill perfectly.

    If the guy will take £500 for the set of 3 then I should have them by the weekend.
    He's only got 3 as one of the wheels is damaged beyond repair, so I'm trying to get hold of one s-line alloy to complete the set (trying to make this car as unique as possible). So if anyone has got one for sale then i'll take it.

    Anyway, here they are...

    Kind of have a look of the Speedline Turbine alloys from the Mk1 Clio 16V, but with more detailing in the hub area.

    Be interesting to see how they look.

    Looks like a lot of hard work has been invested here. Respect; as these days I struggle to find the will to empty my catch can!

    I've just coughed up a little bit of sick in my mouth...

    We should do a top ten mods list.

    Would this rate above or below the blue alcantara engine covering?

    In fact, I think this single grille looks better than the OEM double....
