Nioce car, but purple rims?? I don't know...

I wanna do the same Lamin-X treatment to my lights as you: yellow on the fogs and light smoke on the headlights. Do the foglights actually project yellow with the Lamin-X covers?

Yes quite yellow. They look really good actually when you have a xenon / hid set up. Im going to eventually do HID's down there, the standard bulbs blow out for me quickly. I think my splash guard off doesnt help much.

Nice ride man, purple rims is similar to the Dub style but I think you could pull it off...go for it, what size are those 2 piece wheels? 17"?

Those are actually fake 2 piece. They are 17x8 ET 20. Im 90% sure that I will be going with rkII's after this or LM's if I can find a decent price on them. I am on alot of vw / audi forums and I like stance. It seems other forums I have been on hate anything that is not 100% Oem.

I still need to get and aero front lip, and side skirts. Also do a cutout for my straight pipe (forgot to add I have no muffler just replaced it with a pipe) This audi s4 from around here is sort of my inspiration.



Thanks for the warm welcome.

Im going to see what they look like in silver first, I just love the way a 3 piece wheel can be customized and original. You can have custom barrels, hardware, main rim area, center caps ect. Im not 100% set on the purple yet.

Wow! Car looks great. Not sure about purple for the wheels. Not liking the green on the Audi.

Anyway, Welcome!

I think stock they will look great on your car. Otherwise go for more of an earthtone with the polished lip. Traditional Saab wheel paint job on some RK2's looked like this;
Those look really good, I just want something different you know?

My fakes next to the uncles legit e55



But my dream wheels are some mercedes Alphard. I will own them one day, this guy needs some spacers though.

Like yesterday! Anyways, I for one have a soft spot for colored wheels on certain cars... Some cars can really pull it off imho. I am actually excited to see what it is going to look like. Glad to see someone trying something new!

Some examples where colored rims can look good...

I get that - and those wheels both look great - but not purple or green imho.... keep things toned down eith earth tones - it will look much cleaner and sharper. That slammed SS is crazy - and needs some camber correction there for sure.

So - do Mercedes wheels just bolt onto these?
