Default Makes me laugh - Team Heko's

Every car i have owned over the years has normally had a front set of team heko's always good quality parts

So I ordered a set for mine to see what they would look like on the S8 and for the life of me sadly I couldn't get them to fit at all with the double glazing and with out snapping them.

Good to see this advert below with them fitted to the car... cough
