anyone spec DCC on a car with 18s?  It felt great on test drive without but may future proof things if i ever change to 19s down the line and may improve resale value, opinions? Is this a waste of £780?

Specced 19’s but added dcc even though I’m not certain it’s needed after testing one with 18’s and one with 19’s. Both drove well without.

Added it since every reviewer goes on about it so will be a desirable option to second hand buyers and also in the hope it does make the car more comfortable when in the comfort settings. It will be a must have for anybody thinking of doing track days because it will certainly make it stiffer in the harder settings. Doubt mine will ever see a track over the course of my ownership.

They weigh an unbelievable 11.6kg each! Think they’re cast lead

Some suggesting 9.3kg? Are they forged does anyone know? Seems unlikely but then again the old Belvedere were mega light.
