It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

If you could get me some contact details that would be amazing! They’re not to save crash damage, more to cover some scuffs up ;)

Carbonadi ones are up to 8mm thick, and so will save you from crash damage if you drop it.
Make sure you tell Adi to cut the holes in the alternator side.
He speaks English.

The others are just cosmetic and are no use at all.
You might as well touch up the paint or polish the cases for all the good they'll do you in anything more than a walking pace drop.

You pay for what you get
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

I refused my wheels the first time I went to collect them, as well..... they looked shite. Second time around I’m really happy with them! I swapped the tyre over on the rear today and got that fitted.... my god I’m happy. sh1t pics for now!

I can see why you refused them....
White might have been better.

Cheeky bugger ;). Whilst I love white wheels, I don’t think they’d work for this build. Next one maybe ;)
