Got an email saying I should be getting my new wheels delivered tomorrow 
Ordered these LM reps from BM Autosport.  :laugh:







They are 18" x 8.5" et45. They will be wrapped in Falken FK453 225/40/18 all round. They will also come with spigot rings, new wheel bolts and locking wheel bolts   :laugh: :laugh:

My wheels arrived today   :smiley:
Only managed to get pics of one fitted in daylight. Took a few in the dark, but didn't come out great. Will take better pics another time.









They're quite a bit lighter than the 19" Calibre wheels that were on it and the difference in weight is noticeable when driving. Well pleased with them  :smiley:

If all goes well I should be fitting my Eibach's tomorrow afternoon   :smiley: :cool:

So as the cars had a quick wash and I managed to get some daytime pics, here's the car as it is now.















Still got my Milltek cat back to go on and still waiting for my Evoms intake to come.

Fitted my Milltek non res cat back yesterday. Nice subtle change to sound over the OEM exhaust
