    So... I picked up my BBS's yesterday. Kinda mixed feelings about them to be honest. One face is really good, but the other three are ropey in the middle. Not sure if I should take them back.

    The outer rims had already been machined on the lips, so they masked it off when blasting them, then masked off even more when they coated them. It's a B A S T A R D to get the masking tape off... resulting in me having to get a hot air gun and stripper to get the stuff off! AND they didn't coat the part where the face fits into the rim, so I've got to paint them myself too. I've also had to re-finish the lips (from 200 grade to 1500 grade) as they had to scotchbrite the rims for the bloody masking tape to stick to it!

    Plus... the intended MATT grey colour isn't actually matt... it's glossy.

    *sigh*

    Anyway, here's some pics of them... what you reckon? Am I moaning too much for 170? After all, it's not a show car, it is just my daily...

    Good bits...

    colours are spot on why not colour the lower grill strip the same colour as well as badges handles and mirror cases

    BBS faces are now back and they are SUPERB! Makes me wonder why they didn't do them like that in the first place. I'm over the moon with them!

    So, I'm now rebuilding them after I've re-tapped all the bolt holes. Struggling to get some of them back in - guesing they didn't plug the bolt holes when they blasted the rims...

    Anyway, one is built and it looks GREAT. Tyres should go on this week and then on the car.

    Also fitted the coil-overs and new top mounts today. When you've got the right tools, it makes like SO much easier. I did it on my mate's ramps at the Peugeot garage with air tools. 3/4 of an hour later, it was back on the ground with the perfect daily stance. Great. Think it could go lower though, but as I'm taking it on the Ferry to Le Mans in a few days, I think it'll have to stay where it is for practicality reasons.

    It drives SO much better now though. It's like a new car. Loving it!

    Pics will follow once the BBS's are rubber'd up and on the car.

    Kinda... but I'm not really bothered as they look fab now!

    No hesitation in taking any other rims back there if they come out looking like these ones!
