    Yeh Richy_c was thinking that would be the cheapest option was and still be keeping the ride quality. Just have this niggling doubt that the black will maybe make the wheels look smaller?Thats why i was thinking about 19s.

    I've lowered it now. Ignore the fact that on the pic there seems to be another car behind yours. I haven't got time to do it properly because it takes ages and I have to get my daughter to the station, but again, it gives you an idea ;)

    Yeah i say its fair price. I'd try offer £600 or £650 and mention the kerb marks. But they dont look major only minor marks and probably wont be able to see once on the car and from a distance. I was considering these myself but got 19s instead.
