    Default XP2 Alloys

    how rare are these? as i have only ever seen 2 sets 'in the flesh' so to speak.

    i currently have them on my XP1 SRi but am thinking about changing to some VXR 19s?

    does this seem sensible or would people rather keep the rarer wheel?

    I hardly ever see them in my opinion very nice wheels too. Was some for sale in the forum that are now sold.

    XP2 Alloys ?

    Do you mean the Five spoke 19's commonly (But incorrectly) know as "Snowflakes" ?

    (A snowflake has Six legs)

    I may be wrong, but I believe the 19's are actually called XP's as they usually come with the XP pack.
    (Fancy bodykit / skirts / spoilers etc)

    The XP1 came with the 19" snowflakes
    The XP2 came with these 18" as standard:

    Ok, I see, dont know if they are rare or not, although they look identical to some mass produced BBS alloys,
    (Cant remember the name of them) that have been around for years.

    Not certain if these are the ones I'm thinking of but they're a bit like these,

    Although I think I actually prefer the set back / deep dish style of the BBS's.

    VXR 18" snowflakes as rare nice and over looked as well. 18's also give the best of both worlds with good looks and better ride than 19's.
