Looks very cool.
I'm looking at the same wheels for my 07 MCS Astro Black but in 18"s. Did you black out the headlight rings yourself? I'm trying to source these with a vinyl coating.

Nice. Well done.

grafikr - yes I did the headlights myself there is a thread in the photos forum from last week. I used a product called plastidip to do it

Looks very nice :)

Yes, be careful about lowering. I've had mine lowered using the Eibach Pro spring kit. They said 20mm but it seems more like 30mm. Unfortunately, there are a lot of speed bumps around where I live in East London, and I'm frequently scraping the bottom of my front aero bumper even when I take it slowly.

Damn speed bumps! :(
