    Back to the bodyshop..

    Following a change of heart, im having my standard snowflake wheels
    re-furbed and re-painted.

    Been to the bodyshop this lunchtime to go through the colour swabs and a general mince

    I opted for PCG 952 SILVER....means nothing to me, or you, apart from the fact the colour is very bright and very metallicy

    Goes in on Monday for some more love...

    Station Bodyshop - 01329 825472. One of the customers cars made me laugh too - its an 'M' Z3 with the number plate SH08T..reads SHOOT

    After looking at your new wheels, I thought about having a dark finish on the car. but after some persuasion decided they may look 'lost', so went the safe route

    Doing the right thing imo, I was a little surprised by the wheel choice you made. The std wheels just look so 'right' on the GSi, more so when it's sitting a bit lower.

    yeah i agree, have just been picturing them on a black car and i think you have made the right choice having them bright. plus it seems you may be going down the speed route (considering stage 2) in which case the 17s are a lot more practicle than the 19s.

    nice one mate, nice clean bright silver rims - and different enough from standard that it will look cool, without ever looking ott ( which I know your not into! ) - whatever that paint code is, it sounds like some kind of high power bright silver - will do the trick nicely once you get your eibachs....
