    RS Spyder Wheel. Wonderful looking center bolt. So clean looking!

    BUT... strictly from an esthetic viewpoint... Unlike the latest after-market wheel designs like Champion RS171 and HRE P40, which look like beautiful 3-D sculptures and have curvaceous lines that match the 911 form, this wheel is flat in depth and has linear lines, leading to a boring appearance to my eyes (YMMV).

    That said, the facts that it's OEM, is cheaper, and has the absolutely cool center bolt make it a compelling choice.

    Looks like the Maserati. *IS* the Maserati?

    I used to think the F430 is a must-have once in a lifetime, until I drove one: Gorgeous looking, wonderful handling and chassis response, but practically no torque to speak of compared to my Turbo.

    Still, it's a Ferrari, and here's a shot of the big brother. What an amazing looking car; the new Ferrari California looks soft and mundane next to the F430.

    ....really like the 19'' RS Spyder Wheels on the turbo. That´s the wheel I was looking for!

    And the big plus is that it is so cheap when ordered as an option. The clean center section is very pleasing.

    That said, my favorite wheel of the show comes from a Lamborghini. The car is stunning, but amazingly enough the wheel is even more so: Flat & 2 dimensional, maybe even too complex, yet I could NOT stop staring Smiley. I test drove the Gallardo a few months ago: If ever there is a car that I might take over the Porsche GT2, it would be a Lambo: V10 power and torque, handling to die for (although a tad heavy and insulated IMHO), and an exhaust note to end all exhaust notes!

    CaliforniaHeadlights.jpg I can't say that I care for the Ferrari California headlights. A bit of a strange look,--and that is ONE heavy car.

    Re: Pics LA Auto Show: RS Spyder Wheel, etc.

    The RS Spyder wheel does look great. If you order the car with a set, if certainly limits your choices for winter wheels and track wheels etc. though.

    Re: Pics LA Auto Show: RS Spyder Wheel, etc.

    Do we know yet whether the rumours that the Spyder wheels shouldn't be tracked are true??

    Good point. Hmmm, the more I think about it, the more it seems this very pretty center bolt may not be such a good idea after all. Long live HRE P40 then. Smiley

    Aston Martin DBS. Car is pretty beyond belief but also the "muscular" and aggressive wheel took my breath away. BTW I think Aston Martin has THE most beautiful OEM wheels; Audi a close second. Porsche? Well... Smiley Seriously, this DBS wheels raises my heart rate just looking at it, as opposed to the new Porsche RS Spyder Wheel. Porsche manages to make a mesh design looks boring; that's difficult! Just my opinion, YMMV.Aston 08AE8823.jpg
