        Well... ordered some 2Forge wheels...

        S2 ownership is all about compromise... don't really like the design, sure as hell don't like the colour. size and fitment is almost right... but, they are pretty light...!

          New wheels fitted. I reckon when they need a refurb, they will be done silver...

              KW V3 coil overs almost fitted (had to source some new covers and bump stops)

              Also, since the KWs were M14 versions and my hubs were M12, I made some conversion washers... Fitted a treat...

                Well, the KW V3s are fitted, along with some other nice bits and pieces...

                I set the ride height and set the tracking / camber / caster by eye

                Stainless bonnet catches, billet steering connector...

                Awaiting the possibilty of full geometry set up and corner weighting now... But not holding my breath...

                      No, I much prefer the winters, actually silver wheels in general. Problem is they weigh 29kg each with tyres! (and they need spacers to clear the brakes)

                      When I was looking for lighter wheels, the black ones were the only ones I could find that were about the right size, fitting without spacers, sadly only available in satin black or gloss gunmetal.

                      My plan is to change them to silver when they need a refurb...

                          Have never liked those wheels until now. The car looks great with them on! 29kg is heavy though.
