    When you see lovely alloys...

    ...but the car is driving so you have no way of knowing what they are!

    A MK3 van followed me through most of Carlisle tonight with some 4-stud 5-spoke alloys on. Perhaps the plainest of plain designs but darn I know they'd work on my car...not that I have the cash for any, but it's nice to have plans...but I don't know what they are and I've not seen anything of their ilk anywhere...

    Was tempted - if I wasn't heading home with my 3.5yr old daughter at the time as the guy pulled into a local housing estate.

    May well do...the last set I saw that I liked have now gone off the car, so they've likely been sold...the last set were almost identical to those Ffoeg has but a 4-stud version.

    Yup I can't get over just how expensive alloy wheels are, it's almost as bad as anything branded "irmscher"
