Nice Sam. For me a think a gun metal / ferric grey wheel refurb would work really well. Keeps the stealth look (ish) but gives it a little more presence. Your car your rules but just a suggestion

Might be an idea, on another set of wheels i think, wait to till the limit on the tyres go down then on the look out,

As above looking good mate. i'd go gunmetal for the wheels, or gloss battleship grey might be different ?

Looking to do a Flappy Paddle mod on the back of the steering wheel

Looking at it, only 2 wires control the gearing on the paddles

Seem to remember Tallis saying that he found a guide online and that it was reasonably straight forward... Apparently the parts are quite reasonable too... :thumbup:

Took the day off work as it's the bank holiday this weekend, needed to do some work on the car, changed the alloys as one of mv2 was losing pressure, then found out it was buckled, so got the 17" Acs wheels from the old car, painted them Matt black
