    Thanks to Philip Walker for sorting me out a fantastic deal on some new wheels which just arrived.

    These could work out to be more work than it's worth getting them to fit but there's no harm in trying...quality of them is outstanding.

    Forged centres and titanium bolts, look better in the flesh than I thought.

    GET THEM ON NOW!!! awesome wheels mate - cannot wait to see them on the car :hubbahubba:

    what tyres are you going for? i have 235/35/19 on mine but a slight stretched look would be awesome on them - 215's or 225's!

    They'll have to be 215/35's to compensate for the ET, i'm not even 100% they'll fit yet...may need some time in a bodyshop.

    Very nice, i love genuine BBS rims. A mate of mine has them on his old Mk2 Golf GTi and they look the dogs. However IIRC they cost nearly as much as the car. Look forward to seeing them on an S3.
