A quartet of shiny/clean Indiums! I am not sure what that indicates?

Possibly a new Arch-Bishop of Canterbury, but that's an ecumenical matter.

I left it split into the colour names so there's more competition, grey would always win by a landslide if grouped because there's four variations of it vs say yellow with only one variation.  :smiley:

You did well to get a gti and R in 3 doors! How did you find the move from Pretorias to Brescias on your 7.5? I'm very tempted to make a switch from Pretorias to Brescias but keep seeing too many poor replicas of both alloys that put me off each.

The main difference would be cost to refurb if you damage one. I.e diamond cut v painted. Mine were factory wheels so can’t comment on replica’s durability. From an aesthetic point of view until it turned up I wasn’t sure about the Brescia’s but really think they suit the GTi. From memory I think the sidewall profile was 35 on the R and 40 on the GTi then factor in the stiffer suspension on the R and it was quite a bone jarring ride over slow crap British roads ( and one of the deciding factors of why I switched back to a GTi ) the GTi on the other hand was still firm but a lot better all rounder for an everyday car. Probably not helped you at all 🤣 but good luck deciding 🤪
