I'll update this tomorrow when I get them fitted, but thanks to some desperate skiiers I managed to flog two three year old ski suits for an utter fortune! as a result I treated my debtors and then myself to something special!

hopefully I'll even manage to make a few quid selling the old wheels :cool:

only reps I'm afraid, not even my ski suits are worth OEM csl money ;)

What are replica alloys like? They look good, no doubt, but i would be worried about them not being as strong or not as light as the original wheels.

these specific reps come highly praised by the lads on m3 cutters, no clue on the weight differences but I could carry them up the stairs two at a time so I don't think they are madly heavy. I've read a lot about the reps cracking but these specific rims have not had any bad press - thus far :)

Sorry but i have almost the exact same wheels on my calibra and i hated them

Only Reason being : Because they took ages to clean between all the spokes....Use to take me more time to clean just the dam wheels then what it took me to clean the whole rest of the car :(


I hope you have one these ;)

Look awesome just hope they are good quality and not lead heavy. Weigh one and then compare it to what a genuine one weighs. :)

I'll do that tomorrow at work, I'm told these are definitely heavier than the OEM's, to bolster the areas that are prone to cracking on the cheaper equivalents.

but they are definitely not lead heavy, or maybe I'm just amazingly strong :p

we have a work valet/detailer who cleans my car once a month for free, ideally I'd prefer to clean it more often but not having a garage in Surrey restricts me :( however when I go home I machine polish the old girl :)

Good boy Wilhelm, they'll look spanking.

What ditchfinders are you planning to dress them with?

May be up your way soon - may need my ACD system bled and there's a specialist in Guildford.

So true. My fingers ached from cleaning my Style 32s.
I almost gave up towards the end as I just couldn't take the pain :eek:
Totally not worth it either, considering they're peeling to buggery.
