if you get chance to weigh em, with or without tyres, be interested in the weight difference. was thinking about oz superturissmo, but found a site that says they're 26kg, thats as heavy as an r32 rep!
with bumpers did u get? im guessing they are r32's but where did u get them? i am getting the r-line front bumper from awsome soon i dont have to time to work on the replicas to make them fit perfect.....lex
I'm running the replicas (until i can afford CH's) and i let my mum drive down 2 miles to the local chinese, and she came and had kerbed the wheel real bad on the front passenger side. The first thought that entered my head was how glad i was i only paid £450 for wheel and tyres as opposed to £800+ for the genuine ones. My advice is that if your roads are poor and you expect the car take a bit of punishment go for the reps, but if you baby your car, and are careful go for the genuine article.
I have the genuine r32 front and rear bumpers. I bought them from vw speed, The guys name was mike. He is the most helpfull bloke i spoke to there. He really knows his stuff. I paid i think 700 for the two bumpers. They fitted perfectly. I have heard about the rep bumpers. I wouldn't touvh them to be honest. Save up and buy the genuine stuff.
Insurance i paid 1800 for fully comp on my own policy at 17.....................i know how did i manage that.
I paid £499 for the genuine wheels and £260 for tyres and fitting. I had the fitting free.
i would still be pissed off with kerbing £450 alloys, and with the small amount of petrol save from having lightweight ones is a little usefull i cant afford to lose any speed off my tiny 1.4 engine, i was planning on rep all the time but since i saw the weights i changed my mind. look excatly the same if i run shor of money i might just get the reps.........lex
thats looks amazing mate. what u gonna do with the back, exhaust wise? i think i might go for the r32 look all over, i was just gonna get the alloys and front and anni sides but i might buy the rear and exhaust just for the looks. get sum more pics of your car up mate, with alloys too its gonna be soo hard to tell the difference between a r32 and yours soon. u should get th blue callipers too..................... lex
