    To be honest Warren I'd like them smoothed out so I'm thinking of fitting 2011 wing mirrors and getting them wired up

    You have just made my mind up on the dead pedal... was contemplating between the plain or the four rings and yours looks spot on! Four rings it is!

    Well its about time for an update on here :)

    The S6's are gone thanks to Tim :)

    I ended up rocking my mates R32 reps for a few weeks while the new wheels were being refurbed. I wasn't feeling these at all and in fact hardly drove the car :(

    [​IMG]

    While all this was happening Paul at C6Carbon had some parts he was wrapping for me. These came back on saturday morning and what can i say his work is stunning! Heres a quick preview but it will all go in for MIVW this weekend.

    [​IMG]

    The new rims went on for Sunday and the Detailed show and I have to say I like them more than the S6's which suprised me.

    Heres a few pics

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This friday is going to consist of fitting the short shifter and cutting down the gear stick so that the new gear surround looks full on oem ;)

    More pics to follow from MIVW Holland

    Seen this on Edition38 and wondered who's it was.

    Agree with you, think these wheels look great and better than the S6 and R32 reps. Good choice.

    Love it Chris, Think i loved the S6's too much.. But you cant go wrong with the Speedlines and it does look rather stealthy on Black wheels.. :ninja:

    This C6 Carbon is the guy who sorted Ians car out right? ive looked on his website for some quotes but it seems its not fully contstructed yet?(website) able to shed any light??

    Yeah the sites not fully working at the moment as I'm building it for him and I'm waiting on content :)

    Paul did Ians work as well yes his work is top notch he's his own worst critic and if something isn't right he'll redo it rather than send it out to a customer.

    I'll get some more pictures of the work ive had done up on friday when we fit the gator surround and ashtray ;)
