There not bad at all (thats what I mean if fiat do it I think its cool) ofcourse its not always this way with manufacterers
Its like putting aftermarket alloys on a merc they look much better dropped on a set of AMG's
Oh come on I know it seems bias now cause I only just put my avatar up but even so you catch my drift
Anyways its each to thier own I just find some cars can be modified so much that they make you cringe and as much as I used to like after market alloys its only certain makes of wheel that can cut it to look good and i would think wow
For instance BBS now they make cool wheels mainly that look good on German cars but on the GPS I have yet to find a nicer looking wheel than the ones that are on thier as standard I mean they are very nice.
Anyway it must be easier to sell a subtle and tastfully modified car than it would one that got every bell and whistle from Ripspeed/halfords No??
PS Thought I might get grilled for the current avatar so going to take one of the merc and the GPS together as they are both Black it could look like either an advert for funeral cars or even more sinister mafia duo
Couldn't agree more.
I also like Borbet wheels on VWs but again, theres not much else as far as wheels go that turn my head.
Leave the avatar, that merc is cool
Yeah Borbet are cool too mainly VeeDubs and Porsches suit those wheels
I remember when Kahn wheels first came out my mate had a set on his Rover 220 GSI (I Know shame on him) but they actually looked cool then I don't like them now somehow certain designs of wheel are only cool for a nano second like three spokes in the nineties I hated those though:idea:
Thanks for the coment on the Merc I have owned it for 6 year,s now and take alot of pride in it they don't make them like that anymore although I think Merc are getting thier act back together again now.Whenever you drive it anywhere it get the right amount of looks as to not make you feel like your driving a Lambo but its still something special.
I have never been a car snob just always been heavily into Mercs and VW's never been a Beemer fan although they have some cracking cars and I love some of thier old school stuff like the E28 M5 nad E30 M3. Now I got my GPS daily driver it has opened my eyes up to what Fiat are capable of.
My dad had a 131 Super Miriafiori when I was a kid and I loved it only cause I used to see the Abarth version and imagined my dadas was that one
Sorry guys I do get carried away sometimes most of you are probably asleep by now
