    lmao its difficult to describe the colour, its like when you have a silver wheel with like 4 months of brake dust in a matt finish and a blue tinge to it lol

    and pg 14 is yours

    it is hey! 680km trip down with 80+ cars!

    but 2 of the cars hit a cement block that a truck dropped into the road breaking wheels and suspension so dwayne and myself pulled over to fix the cars to get them to the nearest town to be fixed proper so we left the convoy and was behind by nearly 3 hours

    damn dude you do some deadly speeds hey!!!! btw do you live in klerksdorp?


    thanks strat yeah on another set of wheels it looked amazing hope it looks just as good on my car

    so got my wheels back on friday and im very with them.
    They seem to change colour under different light and they have a slight blue sparkle to it which i love! but the camera does not seem to catch the colour so great thou....

    WORK DONE ON WHEELS

    * Drilled surrounding stud holes a little wider to fit lug nuts
    * Refurbed the wheels (straighten)
    * Resprayed it in a custom colour

    Wheels look epic Miggz... I like the slight blue tint and with the blue lug nuts it works well togehter:rock:

    Nice flame as well! Will you ever consider doing an exhaust tip?

    Everyone has their own tastes... I must admit I'm a sucker for a good exhaust tip! I'll probably be changing mine for a different one soon again...

    On wednesday night I flushed out my dot5.1 and replaced it with MOTUL 660.

    My fluid in there did not look bad at all and did not think I was going to even notice a difference.

    But I was wrong lol, instantly the 660 felt better on the clutch and brake peddle. That night I took it for a very spirited drive and pushed it to its pace and was impressed no brake fade or signs of wear or anything.

    So as for my experience with motul 660.... I will not use any other fluid again!
