    Do they look good in your opinion? They are BBS's from a Golf Mk4 Anniversary

    Do you have a closer pic?

    They do look v. nice though, and i guess they weigh as much as a toffee wrapper too /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    They look really good Rich. Are you keeping them on it or was it just for a Picture?

    Really suits the car IMO.

    Very nice...
    Wrong offset for you though aren't they, at ET38? ...maybe not!
    They are 7 1/2 wide too, aren't they? ...a good width for handling...and very light.

    Anyway....I love the wheels...just make sure you get a warranty.
    Every Mk4 Anniversary owner I know or have heard of, has had at least one wheel replaced under warranty because of corrosion. Many have had a full set...or more!

    I guess if you re-finish them or powder coat them, they are fine...but that kinda defeats the point of having the ball polished finish, doesn't it?

    Just be aware of the corrosion issues...

    I prefer the RS6 look myself Rich, but no doubt your car would be quicker with these wheels on, with them being lighter, still looks good though. Is that a photoshop, or are they actually on your car Rich?, I can see the Porsche brakes behind the wheels, so guessing you have them already. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Nice photo job Rich. Fooled me too.

    My girlfriend has a Golf Anniversary. All 4 wheels had corrosion. Anyway, a call to the VW garage and an inspection by them, and all 4 wheels were replaced under warranty.

    Not sure if there is anything you can do to stop it though. I think water gets in behind the lacquer (sp?) and then corrodes the alloy.

    Manual says, wash and then wax with a "hard wax". What is a hard wax? Presumably not a liquid wax.

    Anyone doing a group by on Wheel Wax?

    Something like 'wheel wax' should help, but nothing will prevent it otehr than getting them re-lacquered.

    They look fantastic rich! The finish on the insides of each spoke is poor from factory though and this is where they generally corrode.

    I would try and get a set whivh need refurbing and get them powder coated or something. Anthrecite insides and edges with polished spokes would look awesome on silver!

    Rich,

    I wanted these but didn't do them in 19" (*Bling*)

    Think they are the business. Look great esp on a black or silver car.

    Nice Photoshop btw, had me fooled!

    Oh bugger, I've just ordered a set of 19" (Bling!) BBS CH for mine to replace the RS4 Replica's, Should be here today or tomorrow hopefully....
    Sounds like the general opinion is that my RS4 replica's look better than the BBS one's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif

    Those wheels look very nice on that S3 though.....

    Rich's car is NOT an S3 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif, even though it has over 300 horses under the bonnet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    BBS CH's are the dogs on an S3. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

  21. I had RC's on my Golf Rallye and I loved them. I wanted to get some RWII's for my S3, but I can't find them anywhere.

    Does anyone know if BBS are cutting down their wheel range or maybe changing it? I have looked for a few sets of BBS wheels now and im always told they aren't being made anymore.
