    How do you wrap wing mirrors though...? That Bora was painted.

    I was very nice though... and I'm with you on the BBS's...!

    they are lovely rims, there was a lovely gold one at tatton park vwnw in 2007 with a tan leather interior and no headrests sat on a set of them and it looked so nice. definately my favourite rims for a bora for the oem* look.

    gee, get your mirrors and roof painted that colour perhaps then? if you get your rims done by the same person you will get an exact match. it would look very nice. perhaps you could even get your rim lips sprayed the same colour silver as the car? saves polishing and would look very nice.

    Slight change of plan... the OZ's have gone as they were going to be a RIGHT pain in the arse... so I bought some BBS Calito's from a new A3 instead. Trial fitted one wheel tonight so that I could decide what size tyre to order for them...

    They are lovely wheels, but they don't look like 18's - hopefully with tyres on and the coil-overs they'll look better... might need a tiny bit of stretch on there to get them tucked up in the arches...

    I think they're a well nice looking wheel and I quite like the fact they don't look enormous - sticking with the darker centre route or going for something different?

    Keeping them as they are for this year... might change them when they come off for the winter.

    Jez... thinking about it - it's just not fast enough as it is... lol

    Just picked up a LCR front splitter to go on it... obviously it'll need a bit of work to fit... but should look good.

    Updated pics on Friday when the work's been done.

    Really lovely rims Giles, I think they'll look spot on when the tyres are fitted and it's dropped. The modern wheel on a slightly older model Audi will be a nice touch.

    Just a few snaps of it today after it's 1st outing on it's new rims...





    I'm really happy with how it's turned out... and for the money I paid for the coil-overs, I'm REALLY surprised at the decent level of ride quality it still retains. Fair enough, it's a little hard on the rough roads, but that's to be expected... but I've ground out 3 times already in the first day!

    I think the wheels have worked quite well... and I'm a lot happier with them now they're on the car.

    Just the paint to sort out now...
