Right, to answer the questions, they're 13x6 with ET 11, Pretty sure BBS mahle's are my favourite wheels.^

SuperMario, I should be at some shows this year, just attended Ultimate Dubs which was sweet, will hopefully be at Early Edition, E38 and maybe VWfestival.

Finally got the wheels sorted, me and my brother have had to mess around with them because of the weird offset, but finally settled on 20mm rear spacers and 8.5mm front spacers (wheels didn't fit over breaks). anyway I love them and i think it looks smart.

Haven't updated this in a while, car's been off the road for a few months having some bits done to it.

Replaced cambelt/waterpump
Toothed pulley kit (65mm)
Replaced distributor
New coolant bottle :D
got original airbox + tube of some nice people on here!
full charger rebuild by Pete Mirfin, couldn't thank him enough for his kindness and helpfulness, he got me the toothed kit, pump and cambelt also.
the result is really good and it runs really nicely - Just had it's MOT today and passed fine, so thanks Pete :)

Anyway I decided to give it a good clean and took a few photos of it after a short drive;
