I still haven't put on the center caps cause i'm waiting for the VW ones to come in, to decide which ones i like better... should be in tomorrow...

These are pretty lousy pics, simply cause the car is not clean, and i was in my driveway... some better shot coming this weekend... hopefully i'll have time to install the Euro W8 Bi-Xenons this week as well...

I'm not happy with the drop right now... i would like the front to come down another 1/4"... we'll see what happens...

The wheels look great. I can see the pics. I like those wheels. Well I should, because I own a set as well!! :lol: 8)

What size are they? Also, Go with the BBS center caps. You should be pround to display your good taste in wheels. BBS wheels are great!!! :thumbup:





Nice wheels!!! :bow:

everyone knows they are BBS anyhow... i mean it's embalzened right there on the wheel... and if someone doesn't know...? then it doesn't matter... i mod for the enthusiasts... ;)

maybe that's what it is... something is bugging me about them... i thought it was a lack of lip, but it may be the extra mass at the hub...

although it does hide the brakes pretty well... cause i have no plans to upgrade the brakes on this car... at least not anytime soon... :wink:

Minus the Auto trans :roll: your car is tight as hell. Please tell us what drop you have so I DON'T get it. The car is still too high for me.

The rims are sweet. What is the suspension you're running? If you're ever down the Chambersburg way give me a shout.

It's just the whole package. One you do other mods, they'll just click. Or maybe they won't, but I know tons of people here who would buy them in a second if you decided to sell them. So its kind of a win-win situation.


Painted lowers will really set your car off. It'll probably make the rims look much better because it looks lower.

I like BBS's but to me, the CH's have to much mass around the hub. It almost as big as pie tin before it becomes stubby spokes.

Just my opinion.

YES. I love my CH's, but it made my 13.1" rotors look nonexistent.

As for the center caps, I'd recommend the silver ones that I have on my CH's.

Yikes - you guys are pretty critical (I know that's the point). That car looks SWEET w/ those BBS'. Clean clean clean. The drop is just right - the perfect balance of performance/looks and drivability IMHO. Nice.

I know this is not a BBS but these have NO lip at all but a small hub. Makes a big difference I think.

My old, spare wheels now:

When i was looking for wheels, yours convinced me to get the MM Cellos, albeit in 17s. What replaced them?
