About time I got some pics up.

Hey troops had the Type R a couple weeks now, she was away getting the windows done today, and when I got her back fitted new HID bulbs, and LED sidelights, (thanks to the legend that is Mr JP)
Gave her a quick clean and took her for a wee photo or two.
come next weekend, the car will be sporting a different colour of wheels, which colour I am not 100% sure, your suggestions are welcome.

anyway here she is.












All comments welcome, and ideas on wheel colour would be good aswell.

Cheers

Car looks very nice.

Black wheels would be my first choice.

I am not a fan of black either as I think they look like steelies unless they have a coloured lip but dont think the oem wheels would suit a coloured lip.
Like anthracites and gunmetals
just want the car to look a little different from the other type rs that you see driving about hence the different wheel colour.

I'm on the fence with them think I would like them one day then not be to fussed the next, was thinkin more of the bronze that the type r is available in, but then they might just look black

Mine is custom buddy 😃 I have a friend who is a powder coater & he done them mixed a colour for me I have I think the only two sets that he has done ? As they have a different dark flakes in & they are more of a mat than full gloss 😃 that's why I got custom just to be different good luck with your choice, I have another picture with my other set I will post it to show you.

Cheers mate, I am only changing the the colour of the oem wheels. just to make it stand out a little.

The spot is only 5mins away from my house, is a pretty good place if you get the light right.
not bad for crappy iphone pics.

Ah cool in that case id leave them silver, reason being with the handles and petrol cap being silver the wheels just go.

Iphones for the win
