The location of the advert is the next town to the original seller.. I smell something fishy here!!




Agree


Is this chap's name Stuart by any chance?
I bought a set of wheels on a BIN for £1000. Seller cancelled the bid and even text me to say he was 'keeping them for his track car' and refunded my money.
Next thing I know, Hotgirl35 is selling them at double the price.
I am sure the original seller was Reading way or near to Reading.

Some pictures today after picking up from OPC West Byfleet.














Also, whilst I had the tools out I fitted a Manthey carbon bonnet I bought recently. It's painted basalt black with paint protection but the paint has bubbled slightly so will get a respray when I also do the front bumper.

Very nice indeed. The gold inserts set it off beautifully even if for some reason when I see these wheels they remind me a little of gold Rolex ie a little over the top. However they always cut it and just seem right.

Ti nuts by chance.....

What are the others that you are selling like. I realize they are already spoken for. Any pictures of them on the car??

They changed the rubber, decided to entrust that to an OPC rather than Kwik Fit. When are you buying that tyre changing machine?

Ti by Tikore, I know many dislike the idea but they are as fresh and clean now as when I bought them, no rust, no hassle, and things of beauty. Got a good deal on them also via Rennlist.

On the BBS LM, centres were red and never really liked it so had them powder coated back to BBS gold. Split the rims, sent the centres off and then put back together (19 ft.lbs. and blue loctite if you're wondering).

Old:



Gold...











and comparison, not really much in it, apart from weight...

Err no, not a lot in that. The weight saving is nice though. I really notice it when i have the Oz ones fitted to the 997.

I like the new ones, apart from the faux centre lock cap thingy. No tyre machine yet, if i had the space id have one, they're cheap on the bay too.


No garridge at the new pad then?

In the flesh the E88 is much nicer (IMHO) with depth to face curve and the spoke detail with shaved sides.
I was on the fence with the centre caps but went for them anyway. Giving it a while to make mind up.

No garage at the new place, houses with garages round here start around £400k more.

Stu, so I'm curious about those ti bolts... Based on what I've read, they amount to a total weight saving of approx 750g per corner when you take the multiple rotational mass into account - is that what you calculated too roughly when you researched this? (Assuming you did!)
