    Hey guys, I got a major problem. As it has been well documented the wheels on my car (225/40/18 BBS) are completely shot due to the type of finish that VW/BBS agreed to finish them on.

    This is my 3rd set in 4 years so enough is enough. I'm going for a refurb but not sure which way to go?, My car is Tornado Red with no mods....I'm sort of thinkin' Black Chrome?!!!............any ideas??? I want it to look awesome but classy :rock: ........Cheers

    Satin black would look good on a red body, but it will take away the OEM look of the GTI Anniversary with the original chrome finish.

    Sorry for the doofus question, but whats a GTi Anniversary? Is it the late Mk1 shape with the 1800 engine?

    Can we see a complete picture of the car please?

    EDIT: Scratch that question, I have just googled it, I was thinking of the Celebration!

    The wheels in the link Nilz posted look awesome :thumbsup:

    It's the mk 4 golf...a limited edition 1.8t golf they did, it had a subtle kit on it and different rims, they came with 180bhp...if it was my car I'd keep it looking original, how the anniversary should look...

    Yeah Leggy I agree, Anni's should look untouched BUT I'm on my 3rd set in about 4 years and they now look worse than ever before, an embarrasement if I'm honest....Cheers for your message though

    They also did a Mk3 GTi Anniversary, which came with red GTi badges and 16" BBS rims.

    Dude, I think it was originally in the VW section, however being an Audi forum, it looks like there isnt much action in there, so i can only presume it has been reposted here...

    Only what i think of course :)

    Similar wheel would be the BBS RSII's which I have. Look much better and seem to have a much better finish.

    Difficult to get your hands on them then.

    Perhaps get them polished?
