    Default Gutted

    Badly kerbed my drivers side Snowie today, i'm well gutted. We went to my dads today (about 40 miles from home) and just as we pulled up outside my little girl decided to projectile vomit, obviously my attention was taken up by this and I scraped the kerb with my alloy. I dont know whats worst the sound of a child being sick or the sound of a wheel being kerbed, luckily there are a couple of wheel refurbers minutes away from my work. I was thinking about possibly getting them all done, If I was what colour do you think would look go with my Metro blue Siggy? All comments Welcome.

    Gutted for you mate , depending on what look you are after....personally I wish I had gone Anthracite on my xp2's instead of a standard silver. My vectra is metro blue and I prefer the alloys when they look that bit darker (usually a day after I have cleaned them now the wife has the car).

    I bought it from a chap on ebay, A lot of money and a right pain in the rear end to fit, but well worth it I feel.

    £50-60 is about the right ballpark IME, from a competent workshop.

    That's the problem with 19s, look pretty but really are not practical.
