Guy wants 200 Euro.

Whaddya thunk?
I had 9 spoke 18" rims on my S8 as winters initially from about 2009 till 2012. They were replicas - though I think it was only Ian/IT who spotted they weren't kosher 20s - and I'm not sure they cost me much more than that. Those ones were fine, but maybe I was lucky...

Autos Autos everywhere...
(1) 2015 Tesla Model S: (was 85D, now 90D ). Silent and deadly, and very fast... But not as fast as Ian's M3P-
(2) 2002 D2 S8 Final Edition: Bulletproof and faultless: Brilliant Black with Extended (Red!) Leather. Three-times winner of Best D2 1st prize
(3) 1997 Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo: Scots (! ) Green. Fragile, but beautiful.
(4) 2010 Fiat Panda 100HP. White Pandamonium (Final Edition!!). Pure old-fashioned 6-speed go-karting.
