Damn it man, you have by far the sickest R53 on the planet. I've already been "cock punched" for telling you that on the only post I ever made over on MT. Dude by no means did I want to rip your style off, and to be honest - my car will never be 50% of what yours is now. Plus we're across the damn pond from each other.

I KNEW YOU WE'RE GONNA BE PISSED! Sorry bro, but I'm telling you passing on these would have been the dumbest thing I could have ever done!

I still love you rich!!!!! lol

I did the same thing I got upset when I saw he wheels on his car then it turned out he had it first. Oh we'll they are cheap wheels and they look good. It's the price you pay when you can't afford the expensive stuff haha

Beside the only way to be "original" in anything anymore is to make it.

Absolutely the truth! IMHO there's nothing really else comparable at the price point. And especially what I ended up only paying!. I am afraid that the whole world will own them one day now, but at least you have to have some knowledge of "stancing" to make them work anyways. That's the biggest + that we 3 now have going for us.......

Maybe we should just clear out the whole conversation....... Only if you could delete threads you started! Haha.

I tell you one thing for sure, when they arrive at my doorstep I'm throwing them on and taking a picture - only reason is because of what this thread was originally started for. I couldn't find 1 damn picture of any 16x8 (anythings basically) on a Stock MINI Cooper Suspension. It just would be a good thing for people to see that you can't just buy them and they look as good as you guys' cars. Plus I'm so damn curious after googling for like 40 some straight hrs trying to find that kinda pic.

But again Captain Claw, I can't thank you enough with the kindness and all the information that you were able to provide even though it was your same set-up too. Many props go out to you friend, and hopefully someday I'll be able to help you out with something. My only real skills however involve Art programs. I'm an ArtDirector by trade! So anything along those lines bud, shoot it on over and I'll hook you up. My nickname for the last 10 years of my life has been "The Art Dr". Yeah corny I know, it was given to me by all my artists beneath me.
