Hardly notice any diff in the ride, so very please, getting it dropped next week plus the ZCP splitters and spoiler, should look good!
Going to take good care of these!
I plan to keep the old ones, get them refurbished and sell the car with the old wheels (one day)

What do you mean? thicker tyres?
I think there is an issue with the tyres rubbing if i go any bigger, but an dropping the car on Eibach springs next week so should look better!

yeah wider tyres - your's have got that euro look i have 285/25/20 on the back - they don't rub (et25 offset) - so they're flush with the wheel - but i like the way you've done your's - makes the wheels look even bigger - but closer to those wretched kerbs.

got my first scrape..doh - and it wasn't even a kerb - but the raised sidewalk on the inside of the eurotunnel train..did 2500 miles through europe and not one ding and then on the way back entering the train it just slipped off the sidwalk and ding...

nice set of wheels - see you soon

Not keen on these myself, don't think the colour works well with the black, did you not consider these in black?

Damn I think it looks awesome!! However could do with a slight drop in height and perhaps yellow big brake kits?

Worth a try out Tom as they will fill the arches out better and give an even more aggressive stance.

I like the grey as black would have been too much, yellow calipers would look great though

I'm dropping with Eibach when I get the time to book in (anyone know somewhere good?)
What will the spacers do exactly, just push the wheels out a bit wider?
And yes I thought about black, but as the Jerez is more blue than black, it would look weird.
Yellow callipers, other than spanking 6k on a BBK can you just buy callipers?
