What width and offset at the AC's? I might look out for a set. You can never have too many wheels :)

I may have found some :). Desperately need a refurb but from the photos the physical wheels look in good condition. My girlfriend is going to kill as I already have a set of Apex and Advans :)

Your car looks so good! :) Also, the photos you posted are really good ones.

How rare is a 1 Series / 130i over there in Australia? And I didn't know you had also Megane RS there!

Thanks so much mate! I'm an avid automotive photographer (run a website www.autofocus.net.au and an instagram account www.instagram.com/autofocusaus).

130is are quite rare - not sure on total numbers but there are usually only 20 or so for sale at one time (auto and manual) in the whole country. Yes, there's a big Renaultsport following here. I drove RS Clios (172, 182, 197, 200) fro 10 years before the Bimmer. I still have a phase 1 172 in the garage :) the Megane is very popular here - we were the second highest selling market for them after France. We sold more here in the UK! Crazy times - people are finally catching onto RS here after years of only diehard enthusiasts buying the brand haha.

My 172. Stock engine but has Quaife LSD, Koni Yellows, Eibach Sportlines and Whiteline rear swaybar.
