Love your build mate. I have been looking for the right rims too... But it is hard to find the right style in stock, with the right offsets and finish. FRUSTRATING STUFF!!!
Even Varrstoen are out of stock for 2 months!!!!

Loving the drop! How are you handling the bumps around your area?

Thanks man. So hard over here to find a set with goods specs unless you spend real big money :/
The ride's perfect, was pleasantly surprised when I first took it for a drive after fitting them, handling the bumps and roads fine

Came out to my car this morning, it's the 23rd March.. WTF!? It's meant to be warm & sunny!



If anyone's wondering what the funny looking little thing is to the right. It was my little toy car I got for some fun last summer

Only seeing that now, I got the coilies off a member on here for a real good price

UPDATE: new rims arrived
Although, need to wait & get tyres, will get that sorted soon, just after I pay off my summer holiday!

Here's a shitty picture that I got when I was out in some horrible weather checking fitment..

Just some recent updates.

Got rid of the M359's and got a new set of rims, trial fitting a few posts up ^

While I was waiting on my tyres coming I threw a set of my brother's X5 wheels on which you may have seen if you were looking on the UK section.









Only had them on for a day or so then my tyres came through





Put them on but haven't had a chance to get any good pictures yet, just a few that I'd taken after fitting them.







Specs at the moment are 19" x 8.5"/9.5" et18/et15.

Good news is, with these on I have a good bit more clearance on the front for more lows!

Once I get some camber sorted out the offsets can be lowered more, then they'll do until I can save up for some phat ass rims

Looks alot better with the wheels on dude. I would suggest fine tuning with a some spacers now. By the looks of it you can get alot more out of the fronts and still work on the rear as well.

Good progress good to see you follow thru

Yeh it actually looks quite cool I think, rears rubbed like hell though! Would have to have smaller tyres to run them. They were just there to do me until getting new tyres sorted though

Cheers guys! Some fine tuning will def have it looking good. Can lower the front more with these rims, once I do that and get a splitter it'll look sweet!

Just have natural camber at the moment so can't have them sitting exactly how I like, but there's def some tweaking that can still be done to have it looking better!

Pre-LCI tail lights

Comparison

& still Pre-LCI tail lights, only white sections covered in red lamin x..


Gives the rear end a bit of an LCI look without the cost of buying LCI rears.

Was quite happy with how it turned out to be honest
Erm...teach me? lolol now that i'm gonna save for a front lip...this will help me justify the spending!!!

btw any more updated pics with your new wheels?
