    I had the same problem when I was choosing my alloys but I happend to fined these bad boys and I decided they were the best of both worlds. 19" which is a pain in the ass when u need to buy new decent tyres (£180 per corner) so take my advice go for 18". And u prob wont feel every stone n crack on the road to.....:icon_thumright: Soz about my golf didnt have a decent pic of the car on its own lol

    My car was referred to at the start of the thread so here's some pics of my wheels after I had them powder coated in a finish called 'steel'.

    I was going to go for black but decided it would look too dark, plus I couldnt be faffed with shining up my tyres every day!. The finish is hard wearing too so its a breeze when you have to clean them. The only thing I found with powder coating was that I had to remove the coating from the centre bore of the wheel as the thickness of the coating meant they wouldnt fit on the hub whyen I got them back!.

    If I had a black car I'd go for the same colour again though. The colours nice because in low light they look like they have a matte finish to them, in the sun they're shiney :)

    Hey WD i find it easiest to creat an account with www.photobucket.com upload the pix to them and then use the IMG code it produces for you and paste it in the dialog box when you reply... its good to "preview the post" before hand as to make sure the image isnt to big. If it is you have all sorts of Image settings and editing functions with PB :)

    Hope that help :)

    I often consider painting the inserts on my split rims, but i'm not sure how they'd look and I know for sure if I was to do it myself i'd cock it up lol and I def don't want to spend the money having someone else do them and they still look pony

    Ok guys, need some real help here.

    The choice ive got for alloys are:
    The one's i posted a pic of up, the multi spoke ones or so team dynamics pro race 1.2's in black.

    Now the mesh one's are about £250 ish and that may not include delivery and ive got tyres on top of that.

    The team dynamic ones are £650 with avon zz3's delivered (ebayer has started been right now lol).

    So what do i do?

    If you had centre "Audi" caps in black they would look very similar to some BBS ones i had on my old S3...

    Not really no haha.

    I like the mesh ones for the looks but i like the team dynamics for the light weight aspect and they do look nice.

    Im just abit scared abit spending £650 and not like the end out come.
