why not just whack em on?? im confused...
you can always have a word with your insurer to tell them you got wheels etc. and they probably wont even charge extra.

na sorry fitzy.... i was sure i got my renewal at the start of febuary but it turns out i dont get the claims bonus till april the 2nd.... waiting is killing me.

on the other hand, the 2nd of april is a friday which hopefully means i can get it to andys garage on saturday and have it on the ze coiles and alloys by the april meet.

another good thing about having to wait so long is that im saving lots too! Ive got voodoo motor sport making me a custom heatshield with a DB9 cone filter filter Razz

all this waiting is killing me inside Crying or Very sad

On the upside, not having the wheels/coilies on at the moment isn't killing them with road salt Laughing

Took me 2 years to start seriously modding the Corrado!

Look forward to seeing it then!

Oh and top tip before you go today, if your drive slopes or you have to go over humps regularly, measure the distance to the front splitter/sump first so you know how low you can physically go without damage
