help again - styling and wheels
Ok guys many thanks for the help on the last thread but I've a few more questions... if you dont want to know the background I'll summarise my queries at the bottom of this post, if you want the background I'll fill you in!
Basically my girlfriend always wanted a sporty car as a weekend toy so i decided for xmas I'd get her something, however I am on a budget. After hours of looking i found a nice 2000 GTV with red leather, however it wasnt perfect. As it is going to be a presnet I want it to be right so I'm investing a little money to set it straight. All electricas are being checked and fixed (nothing ages a car like broken electrics), I am also getting stone chips and parking dents pulled and resprayed.
No I like to keep cars standard however my GF like most girls is a sucker for a bit of bling, not chavtastic but a little garish. So thus i'm getting a cup front spoiler and a rear spoiler fitted.
Now the car comes with standard 16 inch alloys, however nothing has a big effect on a car as wheels, it sets the whole tone of a car and can change an average looking car into something really special. I would love to fit a set of bittet split rims from image but at 2 grand a set they are worth more than the car so I am thinking:
Borbets type A's - these are 16 inch and a bit chavey but are also bling
Borbet type CW (I think) - wouod go for 17 inch on these
So firslt should i go for 16 inches as per standard for do 17 inchers fit ok and would they impar the performance, which i dont want.
secondly can anybody recommend a good stylish sterring wheel which will compilent the interior, the standard i think doesnt suit the plush finish.
Do 17 inch wheels fit ok with no detremental effect to performance
what are your thoughts on borbet type A
what steering wheel
