Spent some quality time giving the car a good clean yesterday - about 3 hours in total!
I took all the wheels off, removed the horrible old sticky strips from the old wheel weights, cleaned all the other muck etc and then gave them a coat of FK1000 to seal them a bit against further dirt etc.

I also played around with some spacers on the rear - trying 155mm and 7mm. 15mm i thought were a little aggressive, so i went with the 7mm ones. I will probably get some 5mm ones for the front.

Then washed and waxed it.

Thanks. The wheels are in quite good shape so not sure about a refurb just yet.
I am not a massive fan of black but I do think a dark grey/charcoal against the silver would look really nice.
