    Happy to help pal. I was surprised that you hadn't got the permission already Yiannis!

    LOLOL I'm planning to do it on the weekend, I just need to find some time to seal them now that they are sitting in my living room:smile:

    In fact, they look so good in there that I don't mind them at all, a kind of expensive decorative item ha!

    ok so the bad boys are on, and I'm absolutely loving them. They truly look awesome and even my gf is complimenting them who at first she was like....eeer..red wheels?

    I'm stunned by the looks, I honestly am to the point that I'll be selling the ultras, and I don't think the pics do them justice. The car has so much presence on the road, it's like a little subtle race car. I parked it behind tottenham court road on Saturday evening and I can assure you, it does stand out from the 'crowd'. I couldn't stop looking at windows' reflection whilst driving lol

    Bonus bits.

    1. The wheels are so easy to clean and seal, day and night with the ultras.
    2. The gap between the spokes is bigger than the ultras which means you are showing off the BBK and of course the bespoke 2 piece aluminium rear hub:wink:(yet to be fitted though) Also, I would presume better heat dissipation.
    3. The garage guys who fitted them were impressed with them, apparently they balanced straight away. I suppose you get what you pay for.
    4. Reasonably lighter than the ultras, not a day a night difference though judging by hand lifting them. Didn't have the chance to weigh them as I don't have scales at home:worried:
    5. These being red they contrast with the tyre and show their size indeed as opposed to the black ones.

    Enough talking, some pics and of course some more next week after the track day!

    FABULOUS Yiannis.

    How good to they look.......

    An inspired decision if I say so, and it’s teally brought out the cars attitude. Which is apt for how it gets used.

    Love it !!!
