I also like the bbs wheels you have on just not sure they now suit the style, how about a set of 17" cup 2 with painted centers ( Orange ?)which have a nicer lip than cup ones and are a lot cheaper to pick up

not a fan of cups.

As Image Wheels are only 25 miles away I might take a trot over.

Slightly lighter colour than the last time your saw it, Mike.

Good spot Terry. It's not really gulf blue, it's Tony Mowbray Sky Blue.

Hi Pete
If I may offer my humble opinion? Having gone for a solid slightly old school colour I think the Fuchs would look awesome? Dont know

Well Pete popped in at work today to show me the pale blue warrior.
It looks fabulous and the interior suits it well. I have placed my hat in the ring regarding the wheel colour so we shall leave it there.
The colour as Pete rightly says just isn't the same in the photos. In the flesh it just looks like a cloudless sky Cloud 9

Came close to buying an RS recreation a while back in this colour, think Fuchs would suit black (or perhaps white)

I've bought some new wheels, 17" split rims. At the moment they are polished metal, but I'm waiting to get the car back and put the wheels on to see how they look, and if I am going to paint them, and if so what colour.

You can't rush these things.

However the car is back to bare metal again as the job was not good enough so it's being re-done.

My God, just caught up on this one... I feel for you mate.

What was up with the paint? I presume the basic prep was not up to it hence the full strip back again?...

Any updates yet?

If Pete doesn't answer any time soon. I went with him to the paintshop end of last week to see progress. The car does look really nice but is still a ways off.
The shop had an issue with the primer on the previous paint, so have started again.....
