I keep doubting myself over choosing Dolphin Grey vs Reflex or White while I'm waiting for it to move past stage 2...... then I see pictures like these and it just confirms its the right colour for me.

I went with factory Esotrils, now my anxiety can switch to the offset as these wheels look amazing!

Congrats M6TT F!

Copycat  :wink:

We must think very alike as I hadn’t seen your Clubsport stripe before and I have something similar in the making.

I think they suit the car so well. Don’t know if you thought the same but they came darker than I thought but actually work perfect with the Dolphin Grey

Haha! Yes it would seem so! Wasn’t sure how dark they were going to be , as most images have been retouched and contrast increased. I half expected then to be darker! But I agree, they suit it perfectly. Look forward to seeing your plans for the graphic

Your Clubsport looks fantastic, love it

Really liking the additional Clubsport decal, subtle but really finishes it off

Cheers. Yes, subtle was what I was after. And the graphic was cheap as chips

Yes, correct. Well, SL01. Acegadget also has a set. They’re 8.5 x 19 ET45. No fitment issues at all. Ride does feel firmer over the stock 18s it came with, but not uncomfortable No DCC, as it was a from stock purchase.

You have enough clearance between rim and strut?
I bought a similar size 19x8.5 +47 but the rim almost touches the strut
Mine is the gti not the clubsport though
Was looking at the same sl01 in 18x8 in bronze :cool:
