Au contrae Bluelup, there is only one set there that dont look right and they are the golf Pirelli alloys. Old wheels dont suit the shape of the car. In all honesty, the lupos shape needs a multispoke like the Anthracite BBS (THe best on that car imho)and anything thats similar to the stock Barthurts.

I dont think the porsche style rims suit the car either because of the soldiness of them. The lupo as cute and cuddly as it is, is quite slab sided and its needs something open in the arches thats a little open.

However, this is just my opinion, and if you like them then thats cool. As i aid its just an opinion and in no way a dig at peoples tastes :)

Some awesome lookin cars there

Lovin the BBS' but bet theyre a pain to clean?

Fancy a set of Ronal Turbos but cant make mind up if they suit the gti

Yes mate BBS are a real pain to clean but do look awesome

What colour GTI you looking at getting?Ronal Turbo's im my opinion do suit the GTI if it's lowered

Nice sounding Evo you have there ! ;)

Do the BBS' have to be stripped apart to be colour-coded? Im guessin they aint cheap to buy in the 1st place too. I quite fancy some polished porka 928 rims ;) a mate had some on his golf and looked mint.

I think the lupos look great in silver but thinking of blue or grey as they seem a bit more rare possibly? It will get lowered if its not already. Any lupos about with hydraulics? That would be fun :D

Yeah the evos spot on, its on the Ten of the Best V dvd from 2yrs ago if youve got it? Came 8th overall. Was just before i bought it. Should be there next yr, got a few things in the pipeline for it ;)
