Finally had time for a wash & AquaWax on the weekend, including the wheels. Have now sorted out the fitment I think, on stock suspension, no rubbing etc:

- fronts: 235/40/18 tyres, 18x8.5" ET43 + 3mm spacer = ET40
- rears: 235/40/18 tyres, 18x8.5" ET43 + 10mm spacer = ET33 (equivalent to stock 135i rear now, I believe, given they have a 10mm wider hub)

Does it actually change colour or is your camera playing tricks? ;)

Either way looks great..

Mine needs a machine polish at some stage.

Just completed a 2000km road trip with some mates over the weekend - Sydney to Canberra to Thredbo and back with minimal freeway. Planning to write up a full report with route maps and sort through my 300+ photos. Here's a teaser:

Wish my mates were this into cars. Sadly that's not the case :( . Love the 205 gti by the way. Used to own one exactly like that in the early 90's before I sold it for an MG Metro!

Happy days :lol:

Thanks lads.

Yes, very lucky to have some of my best mates heavily into cars. We have an FB chat group that is 24/7 car talk... haha they can all steer too and aren't stupid so we've done some pretty epic road trips! Planing the next one already :)

A mate from Canberra joined us in his worked Focus RS. Shockingly fast and looks so menacing on the road...
