^ Feckin Hell! I hope you don't park regularly like that in that location!  :fighting: Apart from parking on what looks like the pedestrian pavement, your cars are obstructing sight for other road users at that junction.

Sneak peak of the wheels we added today whilst sorting out the rear drivers side abs issue

Looks rather nice, better pictures to follow

Ghetto arch work mod to carry through winter before renewing the front wings in spring for tucking 19 x 9's on front

Wheels really transform the car now, with the temp arch work could probably go all lower at the front and get a full tyre tuck

Might be taking some photos at the weekend so will get them up then

Got another couple of parcels at work today too : )

As 'chavy' as they are. I really reallty like them and they go with the grey very well. If you like them who cares what other people say!? They sit very 'pretty'

....Really?  :surprised: I'm very surprised. I think they suit a Steel Grey GTI very well and also pay homage to a lot of track cars, though not a lightweight alloy style.

Far better than some of the oversize and bling wheels that some folks on here think look cool. Bentleys on a Volkswagen Golf  :sick: - How pretentious is that! In my opinion  :evilgrin:

I know, what kind of numpty would do that kind of thing   :pomppomp:

I thought the white would look nice with the contrast against the paint.
This is however coming from people who have no idea about modified cards, as they all drive expensive audi, overfinch, vogues etc

Will be taking some pics at the weekend with a mate when it is clean, so can decide then
Have fitted one of the two parcels I got this week, and I'm very happy with the result  :star:

Need to order my christmas present to myself, some gti skirts to get the sides looking a little lower to the floor now i'm riding on 19's
Then untill the new arches in the spring I think I'm finished :)

....If I had a pound for every time I've heard that on this forum, I'd be able to afford another mod for my car!  :laugh:

We shall remind you of this statement sometime in 2013 and it might be sooner rather than later.

I get the concept of what your saying Robin, but surely he means he's done until the arches are done?  :happy2:
