Thanks Jv, Ok, heres my car as it is at the moment,

 the first thing im going to change are the wheels which are on order, should be getting them at the weekend(hopefully) Ive been waiting for about 4 weeks for them to come from Italy, the wheels are Konig Unknowns- size 225/40/18.
The next thing I will be doing is replacing all the suspension bushes for polyutherine to help cope with the wheel change.

It was suggested to me by a friend that I should get the black spokes on the new wheels painted the same colour as the car so heres photoshop edited version of my car with the wheels painted, What do you guys think? hasnt been edited very well, just to give you an idea-

Well the wheels have arrived yesterday
 so i tried to fit them this afternoon, what a nightmare Ive had, I havnt had the car very long and have never tried to get the wheels off and yes they're siezed on, managed to get the normal wheel nuts out but the antitheft nuts are the spline type and have totally stripped :angry: :undecided:

 luckily I work for an engineering company so looks like I'm off to work tomorrow to drill them out then at least I have the stud to play with, will post some pics when I get it done :cool:

Well I managed to get the boulers on, looking good :wink:

Had a bit of a chew on getting that stripped bolt out but wasnt too difficult I just used a 14mm holesaw to drill it out-

and then the head of the bolt just fell off-

and left this-
which just unscrewed easy so there a good tip for anyone with the same trouble. :cool:

these came in the post early this week-

still waiting on my suspension to arrive, had to go with just a lowering kit for now until I've saved enough for me coilovers.
