Looks amazing, what wheels are they?

Thanks mate. They’re Veemann VC580R. They’re a copy of a Vorsteiner wheel but I don’t think Vorsteiner make them any more. I really wanted BBS CI-Rs but couldn’t afford them along with decent tyres. Especially at this time of year.

I got these for an absolute steal. LKPerformance quoted £1350 and I hung on till Black Friday looking for a deal. Nothing from LK on these or any of the other dealers but then Veemann launched a deal direct on their website selling off inventory. Ended up only costing me £650!

Couldn't believe it. Lets face it, at that price they'r obviously cast, rather than flow-formed, but I've had two sets of Veemann wheels before on my RS5 and M4 and they've been fine. They're also lighter than the factory wheels (which I'm keeping).

Went with Conti Sport Contact 7s this time around instead of the PS4S.

Wheels look lovely and nice to see that you got a great bargain. Will be interesting to hear your thoughts on the Conti 7’s i had the Conti 6’s on the TTS and couldn’t wait to get rid of them, I have read good things about the 7’s but would like to hear your thoughts rather than a sponsored journo.

Had an unfortunate incident in my garden where I forgot to put the car in neutral. Long story short my front splitter lost an argument with the edging of my flower border. Had to fit a new one. Which was as much of a pain in the arse as the first time

Gave it a wash whilst I was at it. Paintwork is just awesome on this with lots of PPF on it as well.

I’ve got 5mm spacers to go on the rear wheels and a carbon lip on order. Which I’m not sure about but I’ll see what it’s like when it arrives.

Quick fanny about with iMovie on my phone to show off the shiney-shiney…

Thats lovely. seriously nice, but I gonna say it - the only thing I am on the fence with, is the Silver wheels, just a bit to blingy for me!

Looking really good mate, bet you can’t wait for spring! 😃

I’m still driving it at the minute but I’m definitely looking forward to Spring so I can get some proper miles on some good driving roads.

Fitted a carbon rear lip but I'm not sure if I like it. From this angle I do. From others, not so much. I might get it painted red to see if I like it better.

Loving the black carbon, it goes really well with the other black accents. Car is looking sweet 👌

Spoiler painted and fitted. Moved the rings down a bit so that they're horizontally re-centred on the rear panel below the lip.

I think this is a far cleaner look than leaving it carbon as the black line that it created across the rear was just a bit too bold and it made the back end look squashed in my eyes.
