I have some rota grids that i want to put on.
Not sure if they will clear brembos though , i had them on my old bug wrx , but they were standard calipers.

Thanks mate.

To be honest , i was just saying to me mate yesterday , that i wasnt sure on the sticker , looked a bit tacky.
It will probably have to come off for the mot anyway.
I had the bodywork done at , dip your vehicle ltd in leicester , he seems to have matched the paint well.
No surface rust treatment mate , just sprayed it all in the wax , oil treatment.
They said it was ok underneath , just that rotten rad panel i replaced.


i bought these off paul (averyp2) on here , they were a good buy , so will be going on im a couple of months after , refurb , new tyres and coilovers.

Great looking car! I would keep the gold wheels. The blue and gold combo is the best IMO.
