Wow! - Love those wheels mate, looks very very nice.

TSW Pace.....what size (width, like 7, 7.5 or 8...) and offset are they then, although I am looking at 17's in future (dont have the cash for 19's [:(]) but would it be the same offset?

Sorry to rock the boat here...

I like the wheels if they were on something like a scooby they'd look awesome, i just dont think they suit the golf.

they dont go with the shape in my opinion. Its a nice car though. [:D]

yeah i very nearly had it done a couple of months ago, but havent yet - partly due to the hassel of getting them smooth first before painting. the garages i visit try to put me off due to the work.......... almost like they dont want the business - f***ing t****rs!!! i need to find a decent garage with nicer people i think. but im also quite happy with the look at the moment, but i have a huge list of potential mods and parts waiting to be bolted on - just need to get round to it

cheers for the comments people, appreciate it

Looks stunning fella! I was thinking of some RS6's for mine but seeing those wheels, i'm not so sure now!! That Jetta on the top pic could do with a lick of polish though!

On a side note, and sorry for sidelining here, but does anybody know where a GT badge could be sourced for the front grill? I've seen lots of GTI's and V5 but no GT :( I'm sure ive seen some cars somewhere that have GT?!
