    Not likely to fit with wobble bolts. They will fit with adaptors though. But the problem is the offset. Putting 8L alloys onto an 8P is more difficult due to the increased offset.

    No tell him they wont!

    He will need adaptors at £200 a set, then they will fit fine! :)

    No they won't fit. The wheels you are selling will only fit cars up to pre 2003MY models... (i.e. the older shape)
