hahaha i do love a LED screen. the pc screen doubles up as a screen for my sons Xbox so we can play each other on xbox live but have a screen each.

yes these wheels are a mare. i only ran them for a few weeks and thought id be lazy and leave them on in the snow. BAD BAD idea. im currently removing the stuck on grit in the form of little black dots off them. Camera cant pic them up so i can show you. im playing with different colour vinyl for the insides of them after i have got rid of me little dotty things. ill throw pics up as i go along.

Sounds great - only managed the same a few ago when sharing a house with a few friends - hooking up a screen and PS2 each was great for the 007 games and GT3!

White wheels must be a mare - my OZ's were an absolute pain when silver...at least in gunmetal I can be slightly lazy!

Nice idea with the different coloured inners - something I've always wanted to try after seeing many Porsche's in the Supercar paddock at Goodwood... grey inner with coloured wheel fronts...that with the brakes, awesome!

the resin aint to bad surprisingly, the little black bittings comes off if you pick at it with ya nail its just an arse to get in to the gap between the rim and spoke.

i aint got nothing more abrasive other than dimond brite but i think thats not really the right stuff. i need to be able to wax it after to seal the rim and pin stripe a little more. missions, aint even started playing with vinyl yet!

STILL got another 2 to pin stripe. i was planning on doing one tonight but it seems this 1 took me a while. I would feed my childrens dinner off the wheel, if it was not for the fact they would get dirty again! Lucky i got plates eh!!

Top tip for removing tar spots - Eucalyptus oil (50ml is about £1 in a pharmacy and will last *ages*).

Oh, and your room looks like something out of the film Swordfish... (The programmer scene).

ahhh nice tip i never knew that, nice one!

hahaha! my front room does look a bit mad to you lot who dont know me i suppose! it is only 2 pcs, 1 is the CCTV unit for my remote monitoring to the cctv company, and the other 1 with a duel monitor output. oh and my tv. i only get the remote monitoring coz its my mates business so he hooked me up! good for when you go away as you always know your house is being watched and recorded else where.[Y]

Gman thats dedication. but i got the bug to with the porkers..

[:D] feeling a small drop more on the front too....

Gman, what wheels are they? They look like R32's... Genuine or reps?

I've got to say, you have one of the tidiest Boras on here. Is it your daily driver too?

They look like Audi TT Quattro Sport wheels to me, at a guess I would say reps as from the pictures the rears don't look wider that the front as the concave part looks the same
