    Thanks bud, the lights contrast all the black to good effect me thinks.

    It might go for a run at inters but not many runs as the new standard clutch is only just handling my torque ATM.

    Yeah I got some stills from the vid but they aren't very good I'll find them for you anyway though

    Man this thing is Horn. I always wanted one, but in Australia they are rare as Hens teeth. I've only ever seen one before down here.

    So the wheels are done, just waiting on black centres with coloured badges and some h&r adapters, who knows what they are? ;)

    They are all gloss black no silver rim, that's just the Light, I'm very happy with the finish, I've bought brand new wheels that had worse paint! And all in 36 hours :)


    Plan is to seal them with a few coats of auto finesse stuff and swap the rubber over from my b7's with the tire fitters being punished by death if they mess them up.

    Car looks good! i like the stealthy look.

    I know they're Porsche alloys but why have you put/kept the centres on ?

    I can't find Audi centres in this size, plus I like the colour of the centres, helps break up the black

    Thanks bud ;)

    Then repair a small kerb scuff and finally end my exhaust ticking by fitting my nice new shiny Wagner 3 inch downpipes with 100 cell cats.
