Got to wait for new insurance to kick in next month as old insurance company wouldn't cover for change of wheels! :thumbd: Plus have to find somewhere open to mount the tyres.

Love those wheels you've bought! I'm sure there should be plenty of places open to fit tyres as this is an 'essential' service.
If you have a Formula One auto centre near you try them.

They look really good! Sorry if you've mentioned further up, but what are they, where from, and if you don't mind me asking how much?

I'm thinking of getting some 18's when my tyres wear out on my 19's, and I really like the look of yours.

Are they a standard fitment on a mk3? ie. all models are the same?

They look great! What’s the extra like on your insurance for these?
I had to change insurer as my old wouldn't even entertain different alloys being fitted. Got it for the same price as the old policy. Luckily my policy was due to change anyway otherwise i would have to cancel and start an new policy.

That worked out nicely then! And hope you don’t mind another question, as I’m thinking of getting the same wheel in silver. Do they take the ball style wheel nuts or the cone shaped ones? If I’m correct seat use the ball shaped ones, so just checking if I would need to get a new set if they are cone shaped.

I reused the oem bolts.
