they look nice, i think you need to drop it lower to enhance the look of the wheels...<p>Rich <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

my co-workers (who aren't colorblind, I am) say that it's a perfect match<br>I'm glad, if they didn't match, that would suck<p>As far as lowering, this is the LOWEST Im gonna go....too much $$$ to change it...and I'm gonna run this setup YEAR ROUND. Cant afford/justify spending a few hours labor 2x a year to raise it up...and Im too cheap to get coilovers<br>I'm happy

I gotta say I like it. Is there any way you can pop out those inserts and take a couple of pics. I am very curious how it looks without them!

Re: (S40DaB)

I had the feeling these would look good, and they FREAKIN DO! Good choice made by Sir Color Blind! Lol!<p>Now start working on getting a blacked out grille!!! And you'll be good to go! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Oh yea, and take that silly wing off! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (S40DaB)

Honestly I was skeptical as to how these would look. I really like them though! Curious to see how they would look without the red inserts.

Re: (BtownVolvo)

Yeah, leave the wing...I took mine off this last weekend and to my horror found the the bolts used to hold it on have dented the trunk lid a little (around each hole the trunk lid sticks up) and for some reason there are two smaller holes on each side as well. The euro lip does NOT cover the two larger holes, only the smaller ones are covered. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

I think I will consider getting the euro lip then. Which one did you get AJ?<p>Is it me or do the pictures just dont' justify the size of the rims. They look like 16s..

the middle pic does make them look small<p>I want to get my wing remove too but the holes will probly cost a lot to get cleaned up.

I'll post in the thread about the wing/lip so I don't get this thread to off topic. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks for the comments<br>Doubt I will take the inserts out (for photo purposes) because thats 10 lugs per wheel...and I'm a lazyass...MAYBE if I get bored<br>

Re: (Percy311)

Wheel are...interesting.<p>But what is with the rear camber? It looks really odd for so much fender gap.

The awd s40 is WAY higher stock so the springs aren't quite as low as they look on a fwd. Without the springs this thing would look a friggn 4x4!!!<br>I'm pleased with them. Just took a few minutes looking them over in my garage and I think the stance is spot on. I do agree that visually it would look better if it were SLAMMED low but this is what I'm gonna stick with. Thanks again all

I love the look... but without the inserts. Those wheels look amazing in the "plain" configuration.<p>I love the red on red though... kudos.
