    Thanks for the compliment.. They are only 18s but as you no katanas look huge anyway because of the style.
    I went for 18s as my old 17s looked to small.
    I still dont want to see the price I was trying to get those wheels from my dad he is a manager at a dealer.
    Nice to see my pic being used... Have them all if you want

    Coo this don't make sense. Just before the MK5 came out lots of people were admiring the pics and some were very interested in the 18" wheels they came with. However we were told that due to the low ET of the Mk5 it wouldn't be possible to fit them to the Mk4. I mean look at every post where people are asking about offsets and suitability of certain rims and they are all told ET40-49. These are ET37, have the rules changed? why do they suddenly fit when they didn't before.

    I'm not complaining as it opens even more choice for the MK4 owner but the advice should at least be consistent.

    I think the rochford ones are replicas, so they get them machined to whatever spec they need.
