Forge has very kindly done me a great deal on some products as some of you know...

Now time has come for some cosmetic work along with big brakes. Been looking for inspiration but now I have found pretty much what I want! Some do not like the black roof but Im going ahead with it along with matt black BBS CH, BBS CK or Speedline Turinis.

Should look something like this in a few weeks:

please dont do carbon... car will look spot on with MTM's n black roof... something about fake carbon roofs and bonnets that makes the car very chavvy... im all for real carbon parts e.g m3's and real carbon bonnets... i just think 30k car and fake carbon stickers roof?? the solid black acceptable cause your saving a respray, just my opinion...

Yep sure will be.

Sounds spot on to me. Will look sweet. BBS CK's are my favourite at the moment.

CK's are what I want but looking for used is very hard! CH are easy to pick up.

Will look awsome as well you know esp the alloys, definately the alloys 0)(0 lol

haha, wont be ready for the inters but the engine bay will look nice. Unless I can pick up a set over the weekend!

:hubbahubba:

Im swaying more towards CK/CH than MTM due to the weight. Do you think it drives better on the CK?

the MTM's aren't as heavy as people make out, don't get me wrong they aren't lightweight wheels, they were 1kg heavier than stock, but bearing in mind they are 1 inch wider and 1 inch bigger I don't think thats to bad and they do look the nuts.
The CK's are lighter than stock 18's and you can feel it, not sure if you are aware the offset of the CK's is better than the CH's for filling the arches, ET44 for the CK, ET50 for the CH's, which is 1 of the reasons I went for the CK's

Just did a quick photoshop with stock wheels and black roof and I dont think im liking it now.

Might be because it was before is was lowered and the angle?
