Well after alot of hassel finally got hold of the wheels.

Unknown to me they were sent through a courier called Yodel. Never again would I use this company, And I hope I never come across them again.
Was given a bunch of lies and accused of many things. Supposedly they tried to deliver several times but they never actually did. They then told me they were left with my neighbor which they wern't. After a week of them always changing there stories I finally got fed up of it. They dont give out their depo address anywhere, after a week of trying to find out where this depo was, I finally found out by asking my local postman, So I walked into their depo and said I was there to pick up the wheels. They said they didnt have them. So I refused to leave until I had them. 10mins I left with my wheels :D
Absolute appalling company.
Rant over.

Not in to bad condition, I plan to get them all sandblasted then powder coated in a dark anchairate.
Bought these cause I like the sort of oem look they give. 8)

Should look very nice when fitted :)

Yes they are indeed! Was a nightmare trying to find a set. Ended up having to get them couriered from Scotland.

I know exactly what you mean about courier services, unfortunately the drives and warehouse guys dont seem to take any care with other peoples property

Yeah just need to find some time to go and get them sprayed, also plan to get all new centre caps, and im thinking carbon dipped wheel bolt covers 8) I've always had good experiences with couriers, But this one was terrible. The amount of lies they would tell me was unbelievable.

Carbon Dipping seems to be a new craze these days, looks very nice though I must say.
You can get vRS centre caps from a guy off Briskoda which look quality :) cant remember his username but I think he's still on there.

Interesting.

could you do me a favour and next time your round there, enquire about a price for the scuttle panel trim done? I don't like having to apply trim gel to it every time I wash the car!

Not much has really happened in the past few months.

But now got the funds to get started on it. Just got the car back from a full respray. Will take some better pics in the week.

Planning to get the spiders resprayed next week and getting them wrapped in new tyres.

Also have a back log of parts to fit so will update as I do.

Full steam ahead! :D
