Loads of space in the stilo.
you should be able to not only fit 18's with low profiles, but also have the ride lowered a good deal.

Seraph, you had yours lowered yet?
it's still sat on my drive waiting for the phonecall... They've had the same "apex" problems that most suppliers seem to be having atm, so they're takin a while to get them through.

I hope to god they get them soon, I'm back at work next week...

I rang so many suppliers yesterday that the guy at Apex told the bloke at Motorsportworld to ask me not to phone anybody else!!!!

I went for Spax in the end as they had a few days delay instead of 2-3 weeks with Apex. Just want them in place for Brooklands.

well i'm not fussed about payin a little extra, but it's raping me enough as it is, with the service charge.
i was originally going to pay a lil extra and get either koni or spax adjustable... but when they said they were charging that much to fit, i just went for apex..

Silver is a good colour. make sure you get some "few spoked" wheels and get the caliperspainted red.
Black is a ok as long as it's that flat high gloss black, not the nasty assed gravelly black that i have.

I think if its to much chrome they do look plastic.

But with thin spokes i might get away with it (n) (y)

Or i could just go Alloy

the first ones i really like, but i'd have to see on the car,
and I actually had those momo GS-R's fitted to mine to see what it looked like, adn they looked well nice... but again, the rounded effect ont eh logo makes it plasticy, and they were too expensive for not being Quite right.
Momo have a great range, but they aren't half a target for the theives.
