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

    No, I much prefer the winters, actually silver wheels in general. Problem is they weigh 29kg each with tyres!

    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...

    Compromises
    They will look great in silver! 29kgs wow, i know mine was much better with some oz before i sold them on...car felt much more alive than the 18s

    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...

    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...

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

    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...!
