    He know me too well.

    They're Mercedes Carlsson alloys. They're 5x112 so straight bolt on, but the offset may be a bit dodgy (nothing spacers can't sort out).

    You can get them here: www.stsmotorsport.co.uk/carlsson.asp:hubbahubba:

    They probably don't drive around with them that low... they WILL be either hydralics or bags.

    Airbags, air suspension allows you to raise and lower your car at the flick of a switch a bit like hydraulics basically.
