I like it. I think its about time they had better colours. When I was looking to sell mines the one question I was asked was 'its not bronze?' Reason being is that dealers are struggling to shift them so you get less on trade in than other colours. A whole grand less

No way! I much prefer the standard wheels to the Rages - clearly I'm in a minority here and realise I'll get a rollocking for this but I think the standard wheels look great!

Liking the blue Type R by the way!

But they are just a slightyly bigger version of the ones that were on the EP3 and there were no complaints about them

The allloys on the ep3 were alot different and much nicer than the standards on the fn2.

Totally agree about the standards looking rubbish, the rages totally transform the car and personally if the rages were not an option, i would not have bought the car and kept my ep3.

Oh, the blue is quite nice.

The EP3 had smaller arches which were better filled by the standards, the current standard ones differ in design and colour / finish plus don't fill the arches.

Exactly, they look dreadful, plain and boring (only my opinion of course)
