    Looks clean. I'm not a fan of the wheels and I also think you need to get some facelift rear clusters...

    omg I've never seen wheels like this before, medic, medic.
    I wonder what the people turning their heads are saying
    "did you see those wheels?"
    "yeap, that reminds me what are we having for lunch"
    Only joking they are er unique and that's all that matters. People dis my yellow car - that's their problem!

    It's gonna look wicked once it's lowered and spacered. Facelift rear lights, slatted grill and german number plates is what i'd do.

    I think they look very cool..not normally a big fan of external mods, but they are different and do look good on the motor.

    I do have to say, when I 1st saw them wheels I thought they were **** but I do have to say they are growing on me. Stick some black rears on and it will the look the dogs.

    I think they look great! Although still needs to be lowered and spaced out a bit to really make it work...

    Nice to see something different, all credit too you for going for it.

    Your tints, are they light-smoke front, smoke rear combination?

    no, dark smoke all round on the car when i bought them.
    i'm glad people are coming around to my way of my euro thinking!
    in person they are loads shinier(word?) and it looks 100X better!
    i do need to space the rears a bit more but they are already ET28 and means more spacing as they were ET48 but are running on 20mm PCD adapters which i'm really impressed with.
    going to GTi Spring Fest this weekend at pod see if i can some spacers for the rear.
    you've made me happier now your liking the wheels.
