    What should I pay?

    I'm after a single OEM A3 8P S-line alloy, the 5 arm RS6 style. One that's in tip-top condition, or near as damn it, preferably not refurbished. What do you think is a reasonable price, with or without a tyre? Thanks Ron

    How much does my alloy weigh?

    Some of you may have seen my recent thread about a minor scratch to my osf alloy care of the GF. Anyhow looks like Lepsons are the repairer of choice (thanks pdv40) but they do not offer a courier service so am thinking of arranging this...

    So can anyone recommend a good mobile wheel refurbishing outlet that operates in the South East? Only one I've heard of is Wicked Wheels - anyone had any experience of these guys? Or am I better off just buying a new wheel?

    Lamin-X in the UK

    Seems theirs a UK based supplier now. Don't offer pre-cut shapes like the US store but I guess we can all handle a pair of scissors! Looks like they offer discounts too.

    Eibach Pro's Fitted - Wow!

    Had them bolted on on Saturday morning over at AMD by Lakeside in Thurrock. Can't fault their service really though tbh I didn't hang around - I just left them to get on with it. Which is exactly what they did. Anyhow as soon as I got back in the car and eased off I immediately noticed how...

    Eibach's on please.

    I'll be needing some Eibach's fitted soon. Can anyone recommend a good, reliable service in the South East? I'm going to give AMD a call but wondered if their was anyone else around my neck of the woods. Thanks Ron
