    Hahaha dont worry liam i get the same grief.. I have 3 pairs of 200 pound Y3 trainers, got a very posh pallette when its comes to food, drive a bm as my first car.. you can imagine people comments..

    Thing is though.. most of it is inheritance money..

    Blacksmith you say.. my mate is a blacksmith.. he moved down to taunton.. isnt that near you? He's called aarron stewart.. doesnt live there anymore but you never know you may be aquainted..

    The rubber's stretched.. got falken fk452s all round.. 215s up front with 235 at the back!

    Heres a few pics.. haven't had chance to clean the car or even the tyres seal off yet so the pics aren't the best.. but you get the idea.

    Also.. I've got some stainless steel richbrook locking valve covers coming before anyone comments on the black plastic valves









    they look mint mate are u selling the mv1's if u dont mind me asking, cheers colin
    love life as much as your car

    cheers for jacking the thread lilo and ben..

    lilo i never thought you were sponging etc just can't see how you've got a car like that with a mrs.. my mrs would kill me if she knew how much these wheels and tyres cost

    I'm loving the rims though.. sorry for not letting you be "different" lilo but as ben said there is no competition as far as i'm concerned..

    the only other rims i'd considered were CSL reps and i'd say BBS LMs are at least 10 times better

    i'm surprised how much better the ride is on decent tyres aswell.. falkens definitely the way forward

    Colin, I am selling my MV1s.. been cleaning them up this afternoon ready..

    I've listed them on with some pics in the for sale section and they are on pistonheads..
