    Looks very nice with those rims on mate - I had a set of S3 wheels on my old Golf which were kind of similar.

    Yep :icon_thumright: they look good - re taking pics make sure cars on even surface, pics come out better otherwise the tyre looks as if its down in pressure. Chrome mirrors will look nice as you have the chrome lining...

    I know I need to give my arches a good power wash, but I think the rims suit the car:icon_thumright:

    Yes your right, they do suit your motor.

    I remember seeing a set on ebay for a Buy it now of £400 in manchester but 2 needed refurb but all tyres were near enough new.

    It was one of them dilemmas that I kept going back to the auction nearly hitting the buy it now then Id leave then go back and so on till finally I decided what the hell.............went back and they were gone.*****:sorry:

    but I suppose I would have upgraded anyway to 19's so maybe it was a case that they went to someone who wasnt just going to remove them and dump them in the shed!!
