...but I had to upload a few photos from this morning Wink

The worst kept secret ever is now out :p Went up to Telford on Monday and gave the guys at Speedline just short of 600 in exchange for some round bits of metal Very Happy Got them all fitted last night with new tyres, finishes the car off nicely I think Very Happy

It looks strange without the old wheels on.

The speedlines do look nice though

Went for my favourite Kumho KU31s, can't go wrong with them. The level of grip going from a 185 to a 195 is so noticeable too, love it.

It does look a little high at the front, didn't want to spend any more money on mods, but I think a set of 30-40mm Eibach springs may have to go on now. Back's fine as it is Smile Will try and get a clearer side on shot on some level ground.

I don't like it James, not sure why maybe because its high or the fact it's rack should have remained the way it was with a few choice OEM+ mods but I am biased in that respect.

never know it may grow on me once it is lowered, aslong as you like it then screw what I say. Laughing

its unusual to see speedlines straight out the factory with anything other than a single colour. Maybe theylre going more mainstream

They've always done these in this colour combo. They only do the 434s in this, plain white or plain silver. Would have preferred them to be slightly darker and all one colour but there was no way I was buying 600 worth of wheels only to get them painted straight away!

I'll get some better pics when it's a bit lighter over the weekend, it really doesn't look that high Smile
