    They suit the car IMO, quite understated, I would want AUDI badges fitted though (yeah I know its a `Euro` thang....but...)

    They look very much like these MK4 Golf Gti rims, but smaller, dont you think?

    Kp, deffo going to fit bigger brakes at some point, need to sort the remaps out first!

    Paul completley agree they look like exaggerated montreals, they are very understated, a very plain looking wheel, but it works for me :wub: For the time the VW badges are staying but who knows, time will tell...

    Who are they made by, Ronal or BBS at a guess? It must be a universally nice design because even though they are small, montreal 2's still look nice on mk4's and as such, still sell for decent money on ebay.

    I think it looks the bomb pal, really like them. However the badges for me would have to go. Nice job though.

    I'm impressed! The wheels are awesome and it's good to hear that you're really pleased with the result.

    I think it'd be a little too low for me with all the bloody speed humps near me but it'd look good sat on my drive!!

    more new wheels??? LOL

    Not keen on the Euro stretched over tyres look myself. Wheels aren't too bad even with VW caps LOL. Way too low for me - i'd need to avoid half the roads in my area & prob my driveway too lol

    The Helios are amazing wheels.. looks good on your ride though I think its a better fit for the Mk5 Golf.. really looks at home there
    Kudos for getting something a bit different on the S and yet still keeping it OEM.
    And those crown caps are straight pimpin.. lol.. awesome love it
