    182 is a go kart and blooming quick.

    This feels far more refined, I mean, heated seats! Depends what you are after really, but since I had the White one 2 years ago, I've always preferred them!

    Going to see a tidy-looking example with a set of heated seats on Saturday, see what all the fuss is about :smile:

    So I wanted to get some decent wheels for the car, so saw a bargain set on the bay and bought them.

    Anthracite wheels, centre caps too :smile:

    So this was Stripes before:

    And this was her after I swapped tyres and wheels etc :smile:

    Conclusion? Looks awful lol! So I am going to refurbish the old beaten up wheels and re spray them Arctic White, and the anthracite wheels have already been provisionally sold!

    It just doesn't work on a blue car i'm afraid!

    Worked well on Cookie the Clio 182, and gloss black worked well on my old 197 (red), but no to this!

    Agree, white wheels look far better!

    Red cars with white wheels are pure sex, my old Red Saxo looked so amazing with white wheels!
