Is a bit quiet.

I guess nothing for anyone to say at the moment.

I guess you sold your alloys on the other forum.

The Mk6 GTI looks very good in red imo.

I use VWR for all my servicing and many of my mods. They're not dependent on sales and so don't hard-sell you but would rather that you are a satisfied customer.

Which 'VWR' wheels are you having?

Ah yes, the same shoes which The Red Temptress wears (the VWR demo car) - Very funky. Purely out of curiosity I must find out how much they weigh when I'm next up there. They have been very thoroughly tested.

I look forward to seeing your photos.

I wonder who manufacures wheels for VWR? I assume they don't have their own facilities to make them themselves.

WOW!!

Much nicer than the oem black-insert 'Monza' in my opinion. Makes the car look much more purposeful.

I'm liking the deeper rear roof spoiler which the Mk6 GTI has.

Thanx Robin

I wasn't a lover of the Monzas on the mark 6, they are for the mark 5 in my opinion

be rude not to get them as a £400 upgrade thou

Monzas are already sold, could of sold them 5 times over

Yes i think the car looks a lot better and not OTT (with original caps and bolts etc aswell)

the mk6 seems to swallow 19" wheels ?

Wow i really like the red and the wheel combo. I also did not like them on the VWr website when you posted a link i thought in my eyes you had made a mistake if im truthful. I have now changed my mind. Im not one for black wheels really but that combo works very very well. If i had a red mk6 i know what wheels without a thought i would want on it now. Simply Stunning.

Cheers Mate

It can be an expensive mistake if you get it wrong but i think this combo works,

very pleased with result, all depends on colour of the car thou dosn't it ?

Looking good +++ As I said on Robin's post, I'm not a huge fan of the darker alloy, but I do think that red is the colour to have them on as it really suits the car. I think you're right - Monza II's are for the MKV. Time to drop the ride height? :grin:

Yes i don't think they would work as well on other colours at all. Especially dark colours or the blues.

what tyre size may i ask did you go for 235/35/19 ?

I also know what you meen about the monzas been mk5 wheels its something i keep thinking.

Then again i keep thinking what would Robins monzas look like on a shadow blue GTI lol.

Wheels look very good and contrast well with the neat side skirts +++

Has ride been affected much? From a looks point of view the ride height looks ok to me. I would only do it if you feel handling requires it :)

Nice, very, very nice!

I really want a set of Flashpoint rims that VWR used to have on their GTI but the only place i can find that sells them are in the US and it'd cost a fair whack to import them (taking into account shipping costs and import duty). It's a shame as I think they look fantastic:
