Literally just found some Brescia style of eBay for a cracking price.

@ViralEye, nice one, that's where I got mine from. Was originally concerned about the longevity of replica wheels, however over 2 years & 35k+ miles they've stayed true and properly inflated. Getting a few signs of corrosion in places due to UK winters, but I figured that what I paid on eBay for a set of 4 was less than half the price of a single genuine one, and by the time they're in need of refurb, I'll just get them stripped and sprayed black for winter use, buy another set for summer/best and maybe go for something different or upgrade to 19s.

I e been pondering over a set of 19's R8 reps, or 18's for a nicer ride, and I think 18's are a winner for me and the crap UK roads

Looks about right at £600 inc tyres, mine were £389 without tyres on eBay, then I used a 25% off voucher code that eBay had sent, so £95 off and then £294 paid, then got the tyres locally.

Rally good price that tbh. I know I'll get "cheap soft metal" from others etc, but for £600 I can't really complain

Can’t decide whether to go with 19s or 18s. Will he used as a daily driver for work, currently is on h and r springs but was thinking of putting some coil overs on. Just thinking the 35 tyres are gonna trash the ride.

On 17s at the mo.

Got the side strips, spoiler, door cover and front grilles booked in to be sprayed in January. Got a splitter in the post and am hopefully being given some sidebars, which I wanna get powder coated black.
