Changed my wheels - what you think?
#1
Smile 
So, a few weeks, maybe a coupe of months, ago I posted You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.message about a set of wheels I bought.

You guys advised they were off an Astra Bi-Turbo.

I really liked the look of these and they were practically mint. So I fancied a change so decided to upgrade.

My car is an Elite, I never every liked the original wheels anyway, so last year I changed them to the SRI Facelift Turbine style wheels.

But now that these have come across, I really like them. These are also slightly bigger, 18" so fill the arches really nice.

Whats your thoughts?

Pictures are after giving the car a proper clean yesterday.

Thanks.

Looking very nice indeed mate.

Is that a bit of dirt or paint missing off the rear wheel arch where it meets the bumper?

Plenty of time now we are in lock down, my car is in bits all over the garage.

On the back of your comment, I have ordered a touch up. Been looking at that for the last 2 years, annoys me every time I look at it. Now I will put it right :-).

Always something you find niggles at you & it's normally something that is a 5-min fix but just can't find the time to do.

Exactly that mate.

I also need to fix that annoying heated seat thing on the drivers seat, where it just stops working. Also getting a really irritating aqueaky rattle from glove box area.

I guess nows the time..

Any pointers?

Heated seat personally would just put up with it as it'll only go again.

Glove-box there isn't really much in that area to squeak, things to look at would be the side trim on the end and there is flap under the glovebox.

Have you fitted anything behind the box the pollen filter is there that has a flappy lid.

Not changed pollen filter myself, other tha when Vx have probably changed it at a service.

I will empty out the contents and see what gives.
