    Thank you Jim. Interesting as they should have moved the full 20mm. Great look though!

    Thanks Pantsdown, that was a great help.

    Jim I called DGT, they've got them on back order but have no idea when they'll be in stock.

    Pantsdown, they did essentially move the wheel out by 20mm as they should've done, BUT....
    I changed from a 9J ( 9" ) wheel to an 8.5J ( 8 1/2" ) wheel and so "lost" around 6mm - 7mm or so in that process, hence the 13mm gain.
    Hope that makes sense.....

    Hey Jagary, that's what I thought may be the case, they were very popular

    It's up to you of course in your choice of styling and urgency needed etc, but if you like the styling and can wait I'd highly recommend doing just that. The finish and quality were excellent and the price was amazing for what they were AND never had an issue with them in around 50k miles

    Either way, wish you the best whichever way you decide to jump

    Yeah I'm going to wait but, in the meantime, I'll get the Takoba's refurbed. Mind you, if a set of Selena's pop up I might be tempted.

    I went over a hump back bridge today down in Suffolk. Slightly faster than I should have because I thought I had already gone over it... As the car left the ground I remember thinking "I'm glad it's not wearing rubber band tyres, I might just get away with this...." There was a bit of a thump, a bit of a skip then it just carried on. Didn't see any sparks, the fuel tank stayed attached too.... Seeing as how I'd put £80 of Shell Nitro in it the day before I was quite pleased about that...

    There are lots of opportunities to be airborne around here - in fact within five miles of here, I can think of ten.

    The X350 copes with these better than any other car I've had
