    You sure? Never seen a factory kit that looks like that, seen a similar aftermarket one! Thought they were :). I think id put some facelift lights on the front.

    It's made by Projektzwo, I was told it was a factory option but I'm not sure. I may do, depending how easy it is and if I can find some bargains :).


    They're 8.5" all round, no spacers on the rear but 5mm on the front to clear the coilovers. Not sure on that haha, as it's on coilies I just wound it down as far as I could go really... Back is wound right down and the front has about 1 3/4" of thread left :).

    They're 18's. Do you mean width wise or diameter? I guess if it's width it could be because my arches aren't as wide? I'm chuffed with how they do fill them though.

    Hey guys,

    Thought I'd put up some pics of my newly purchased s3. Just in the process of getting it how I want it, not quite finished yet, being lowered next weekend then maybe space the wheels. Any comments would be good to hear. Bargain I think for £3800. 225model remapped. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, can anybody tell me what the colour is? It's black but with loads and loads of metallic bits in it. Makes it look very dark grey in some lights.

    What i mean is it looks like it has been taken with 2 remote flashes (so two flashes on tripods with some kind of remote trigger on the camera) so when you take the photo you get a better fill light from 2 duffernt angles at the same time. And they would have used whats known as a softbox which is kinda box made of a white fabric that takes away the harshness of the flash giveing it a softer look.
