First Mod to my 2.2cdti

Had the car a week now and the wheels were really not to my liking so went and ordered some new wheels 19" Fox Riva rsx !
Had the wheels gutted this morning and just finished giving it a couple of coats of Collinite 845!

Think I might go down the Eibach springs route but at the moment it's not too bad

Previous Wheels


New wheels

Very nice mate, a subtle drop with the eibachs and would suit the wheels.

You will damage the trim because there is no flex in the oem mudguards.
They are non repairable and you would need to purchase new arches. Just a word off warning.

Looks good mate, like the silver trims on the bumpers. I've got they storm alloys although mines are darker, they don't look right in such a light shade. New wheels are awesome!

Very nice but as said above they do look like audi wheels, albeit one of the nicer audi wheels.

Not a massive fan of the wheels but the car looks lovely!

Great cars as I'm finding out myself..
