    Thanks Ash :D
    These were taken with a Pentax K7 but any half decent DSLR with a good lens will pick up that level of detail :)
    Actually, we thought about that because we wanted to park on the ramp and shoot there but the bloody Legacy occupants were having a smoke up in the car I think :(
    Thanks N8! We certainly are lucky (sometimes) :p
    If only shipping parts to our corner of the world wasn't so expensive :mad:

    Have you painted your OEM wheels grey or is that just the photo?

    Would you mind sending me a close up of the wheels painted?
    I've been contemplating this for months but every time I clean my wheels, I think the silver goes so well with my Sprint Blue and I change my mind again.
    Perhaps if I see the anthracite nice and clean, I will fall in love with them also.

    Feel free to email me if it's easier: gerardpolidano@gmail.com

    Haha that's why you need two sets of wheels mate! :p

    I'll snap up some more pics once this damn rain stops.. It's been raining for a whole week straight and doesn't look like it's going to stop until sometime next week.. My car is so dirty and depressed :(

    Was that directed at me? If so, they're just OEM wheels painted in a sort of gun metal colour.. Not sure of the name of the wheels though :)
