    New wheels for my car.

    Forgive this as its not a "sports car" and its in the sports car board. Just got new wheels for my car this weekend and i'm pretty excited. Handling has dramatically improved and it definately has a more agressive stance compared to the factory 15". Forgive the poor picture but here's what it looks like.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Looks good.
    Why not drop the suspension a bit?? Will look a bit better and should improve handling even more. Downside is usabality wont be so good...


    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Very nice looking rims!

    But I like the scenery even more...

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    My friend it's all about us being brothers in arms here sports cars or not, makes no difference. It's a passion that we share here. Those are good looking wheels.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    I was thinking of lowering it a bit. It would definately look better and handle great but all in good time. I like the "tuned" european cars: porsche, vw, bmw etc. 90% look really classy compared to the fart can honda typical look.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    looks really good, congrats!

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Lovely Golf - nice wheels too. Great cars...brings back fond memories of my mom's old MkII Golf that I learnt to drive on!

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Great improvement, and the better handling will give you a more 'sporting feel' - well done it looks great.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    looks good.. but i also would have lowered the suspension a bit

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    is this in coquitlam somewhere?
    looks very good.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Atz-Its halfway up Eagle Mountain in Abbotsford.

    Here's a few more better quality shots I took this evening (in White Rock).














    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Bryan... your pictures are overwhelming. Great Job!

    Regarding the Golf... it needs to be lowered a bit!

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Well its a good thing I got those shots last night. Car doesn't look the same this morning. guy ran a red light and took out my right front, right at the headlight. Hood,bumper, light and side panel are all messed up (basically everything you can see in the 3rd pic from last). I'm hoping the intercooler is still ok as its on the same side behind the bumper. Other than that its hopefully just body damage, but it will get fully checked over.

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Sorry to hear that Bryan.

    Best of luck with getting her back on the road soon

    Re: New wheels for my car.

    Just got my car back today!!! after nearly 3 weeks in the bodyshop its all good and fixed. Final cost was a little over $4000 which supprised me but as the other guy was found 100% at fault there's no cost to me in that (besides a loss of value for the vehicle ). Its hard to believe it cost $4000!!! Here's a picture of it right after the accident.
