    I bought them second hand then got then refurbed by a place that my dad deals with, I gave £250 for the wheels an £60 plus vat each for the refurb in porsche silver.
    Well worth the money though:)

    Looks REALLY nice.

    Much better than those A8 things that remind me of the things you put in shower plugs to stop pubes clogging up your drains.

    It lowered on spax -35mm springs and gaz shortend adjustable dampers, gives a really nice ride not unbearable like coilovers but firmer than standard and it obviously adjustable.
