    Well i search high and low for a price and the cheapest was on ebay!

    BUT i gave Demon Tweeks a call .......and shockingly they beat ebay prices! Really good service, he first quoted me 4 wheels and 2 Falken tyres (as i was gonna use two tyres off my RS6 wheels to save money) @ £660 fitted and four-wheel alignment, but he said he will try his best again for a better the price! So when i got there for an extra £39 i got another 2 Falken tyres!!! Total £699 and 12months guarantee on the wheels

    Demon Tweeks only have one place in Wrexham

    They are good quality, as the guy from Demon Tweeks said they have a good repitation to look after so would only source good spare wheel replacements lol. Quote "Italian made not Jap ****".
    I could of got them for about £20 cheaper off ebay but wouldnt get the tyre package, free fitting, free 4 wheel alignment and 12months warrenty

    I dont just like this..... i love it! looks mint just requires them all import fog lights :)

    How was the spoiler affixed to the car? Was it easy and would you recommend a body shop to fit it? (i will have a body shop spray it for me)

    Fogs on the way!! lol The spoiler was stuck on with adhesive by the body shop. No drama fitting it really done it my self before on other cars but i would suggest them to fit it. They have prob done before and would only take 10min, less hassle for you.

    Hahaha dont think i ever will. Got a better chance seeing him on Master Mind!!

    Dude: N8, what is your chosen subject?

    N8: WHEELS!!!!:laugh::laugh:
