I know you've mentioned this style before, has a nice alpina-esque look to it as well.

They may be quicker if your just after dishes. The time mainly comes from ordering the billet blanks and machining the centres.

Not sure why you'd want a video of some wheels on a car??

Anyway, Watched the Lions beat Australia, am now sat watching the 24 hrs and the best bit of the day is how new wheels can change the look of a car!!!

Got some new wheels to keep the car on and keep the image in the garage (safe and clean):

Image

They actually fit over the new brakes as well so no more removing them for storage:

Image

Got the rear E30 calipers rebuilt and fitted as well:

Image

Finally a bit of a tidy up of the bodywork, some rust treatment, some welding and a quick blow over:

Image
Image

And all ready for the Trackday at Lydden tomorrow:

Image

Hopefully I'll post up some video and pic's this weekend.
