I've had these on for two months now, but the only pics I could find when I was looking were either on a grey V70R, or painted black on a black S60R. I think they look better on a black car, and hopefully these will help some folks make some choices.<p><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/4699/2621/24246310049_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/4699/2621/24246310048_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/4699/2621/24246310047_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/4699/2621/24246310046_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>How did this get in here?? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/2/4699/2621/24246310050_large.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Ultraleggera's on Black V70R (Edogg218)

I was thinking of getting a set, have you noticed the change aside from the aesthetics?

They look great. I especially like the color combo... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Scott

I want those wheels so badly! I can't find they anywhere used. Your car looks awesome though! I think you should at least consider painting them black. I love black wheels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> !<p>Are you going to be going to Cars and Coffee in Boston?

Re: (Arbelac)

I think they look good. I'm not a fan of dark colored cars and dark rims... lack of contrast. : )<p>That's a cute kid too!<p>

I've done several trips to NYC and CT with no "bending" issues...knock on wood...<p>I noticed a big improvement in ride quality immediately, but I put them on right after the turbo upgrade, so I can't say if they improved acceleration. When I switch back to pegs for the winter I'll know for certain.
