time for some pics,
as i had no time this sunday.hectic driving.So will post more pics tomorrow.People,BTW all this PCD.is just a theoretical worry.practically it is nothing.i will remove two bolts and post a pic.You will see that there is no difference in the hole matching with the hub.driven at 140kmph with these wheels.nothing is different from the OE alloys.also i turned at very bad turns at high speeds,no difference,even my dad felt so.

Looks very good with the current alloys. Smoked headlamps and blackened roof will make it looks wicked

Please tell me where you got that Abarth logo for 40 bucks. That looks seriously awesome. Can you mail it to me if you find an extra one? I'll send you the money via Paypal/BT immediately.
