I was trying to go into rehab.

They look a lot like ATS Racelight but detail differences suggest they might not be. There are a few very similarly styled wheels on the market.
Are they your wheels Daniel? If not then it shouldn’t be too hard to track down the owner to ask them yourself assuming the photo is from social media or a forum.
If I get chance later in the week I’ll try and work out exactly what they are.

I saw them on a car being sold in Germany.. I don’t really like the factory wheels, and as i am thinking of buying an Mk7/7.5 Gti, and really got caught on these ones!!

Being as they’re on a German car then I’d suggest it might well be these V1 wheels https://www.felgenoutlet.com/en/alloy-wheels-tyres/v1-wheels_ff_16_1421

Other similar designs are Dotz Misano or Sparco Podio

The V1 is fairly heavy, 12.5kg in 18" x 8J size, but they do look good.

The Sparco Podio and ATS Racelight are much lighter.

 The bodywork add ons may well have been Oettinger, I didn’t take too much notice of them, but the splitter and spoilers were red herrings!  :grin:

Wheel nerd hey? I’ll take that as a compliment :grin:.

Agree with Exonian, they certainly look like V1’s - they have a little kink in the design on the spokes (arrowed in the picture below) that you can also see in the picture posted by @DanielPT.
