Gen 3 Mild Project! Not going crazy.

Recommended Posts

So, got my tyres mounted. 2 Friday as I only had 2 valves. This guy took care of the wheels. 

 

Got 2 tyres fitted Saturday as I had 2 valves posted overnight. Went to another garage. They put 1 valve on correctly and the 2nd one the put it on wrong, chipped the alloy and the sensor has broken of an rolling around inside. 

 

Worse thing is, I put 2 wheels on yesterday lowered it etc then went to start on the other side of the car an realised it’s broken so I’m now stuck with the car at 2 heights and 2 different wheels on either side! 

 

Fuckin bell ends!

Looking in to have a wheel repaired, wish I never bought them. No one can repair it with it having the CNC engraving on the wheel. 

 

New Tarmac alloys are engraved then powder coated over to stop this trouble. 

 

So, I need to pop back to the garage as they have damaged it more and discuss getting them all powder coated which will be cheaper than supplying 1 new wheel.

Just popped out to take a quick picture as tbh I’m not keen on the white. I thought it would grow on me but I’m not so sure.

They do I agree, but the rolling size is pretty much 1% difference to my OEM wheels!

I just can’t seem to get to like these wheels! 

 

I need to to go lower, I have the clearance to get over speed bumps but it’s just the arches. 

 

I might buy adjustable top mounts and control arms see what I can pull it in with.

They are growing on me, but not totally set with them. Garage have agreed to get them all powder coated as I can’t get it repaired with the CNC 1552 cut in! 

 

Black it grey 😳

Challenge parts on these look tasty too, think it needs a rear wing and diffuser to make it look a little more aggressive!

Wheels are black. Looks 1000% better. But, the place that did them never did the center caps, and the young lad mounting the tyres put standard valves on instead of my TPS Vslves 😳 so they need to go back Monday.

Agreed. I think that looks way better.  They don’t look as big on the car now in that picture.
