    Imo the snowflakes dont look right on coupes.

    Id just keep the ones you've got, if you want diamondcut etc just buy some VXR ones.

    Im thinking they might look smaller than my wheels. Has anybody got a pic of them on a coupe?

    I quite like that with the blue round the rim. Need to space the rears out a bit though

    I was contemplating the same recently mate, have anthracite coupe turbos like you, i think the coupe turbos look a LOT better on the coupes than the snowflakes....

    You do know that you can get graphite coloured centre caps for those wheels Gav. They'd look better than having silver ones.

    Part number is 13214659, not sure on price but can't be too much.
