Yep. So much so (during my late teens to early twenties) that my mom used to curse me for getting only blue shirts and T-shirts (she couldn't keep track of what to wash, what not to, which was old, which was new etc.). My Dad is a blue guy too, so he was happy Now (at this uhhh... advanced age), blue is usually my first preference always, but I'm, open to other colours too

Could have been better with a real camera, the N73 is making no justice to this car.

Ah! You see the difference the background makes? This is why professional car shoots are done in exotic locations.

Viddy, there are a million fake rims running the HR logo caps. So don't go by the logo caps all the time. Best thing to do would be to see the rim on the inner side and see if the logo has been stamped.

yup true about the logo but i don't think maggie would have been fooled so easily. he would have double triple checked to make sure the alloys were suitable for his car. also we have removed the wheel and checked it ourself.

They look nice. BTW when loaded the rear wheels do scrap right? I was advised to not even use the 185...
Is there any way to avoid this scrap of inner section??

Ya, the rear wheels do scrap but only when it goes over a bump fully loaded. I hardly drive with people in the rear so it's ok.
