    they are the later spec Continental GT 19 x 9

    the car is lowered with -35m H&R springs
    enjoy

    they sit nicely in the arches with room to spare ! you could go a fair bit lower or poss even fit slightly wider tyres
    i dont know why i was so worried about clearance, no rubbing at all, no catching, there is a thumb clear on the inside and outside

    I'd get wider tyres, they're asking to be curbed like that...:ermm:

    Lol
    Got the tyres and tracking and geometry and alignment for 505 so a pretty good deal.
    The car is mainly driven by my missus, brought her new boobs a few years back and she liked the plate so got that to match :)

    Easily done fella, Use a kettle of hot water, pour over the badges to soften the glue, then remove. Once removed just remove the glue with tar remover, or T cut.

    Will boiling water not affect the paint at all? I have always used a heat gun / hairdryer and tardis but if the cars more than 2 years old it takes forever to remove all the blue thats left.

    I've always used a kettle of boiling water and never had any trouble. You can use a piece of thread/Dental floss to assist as the parts are a little hot.

    Where are the bentley alloys from ? Dare I ask the damage for these ?
    Did you sell on the old (i presume) 18" Audi Alloys ?

    Looks real good.. one last question could you have run the 19"s without lowering the car ? - mines is currently on the standard sline suspension.. considering new wheels for mine.. almost too much choice :)

    **ok just noticed the original dates on this thread whoops...

    Cheers
