The car is covered in filth as its been worked on while lowered on Techarts by me over the last two weeks, the wheels still need a clean after being fitted as these were taken on the way home but I thought I would get the photos up anyway. What do you think?

You know my thoughts already Finn - absolutely on the button. Love the 'flip' aspect to the paint and I am sure they will come into their own in the sunlight or some artificial light at night.

Excellent, brave choice - definitely what I would go for if I had your money to throw at toys 😉

Thanks for the comments all, it took me a while to pluck up the courage to go for such a differnt colour and find one that wasn't a shade of gold but I am happy with the results, Mrs Finn is with sponge Bob on this one though!

As you said though Demort I would like the centre caps the same colour but unfortunately you can't get paint to match the powder coat. I think i will try a few attempts at matching it with black on copper and vice versa paint but if they don't look great with a good match I will hit them with some Matt black rather than the gloss they come in.

Yep, it's a Thumb from me too.
Well done on pulling the trigger, not seen 911 wheels in that colour, thanks for sharing.

Those look great!
I really like the colour.

You should take some pics on level ground. highlighting the drop of the springs.

How do you like the ride?

Thanks mate i am glad i went for it and also changed out the rear lights for red's and its all tied together with the calipers i think.

The ride feels fine not crashy at all, you can feel there is a slightly different spring rate to the OEM ones in that it feels more springy in a shorter distance of travel of the spring, said in the most un-technical statement ever but i think you will know what i mean. But so far i have only driven a few miles with the new springs so they should bed in, once they have i will get the geo done so i will know more about handling improvements then.
