    Default Cheapest place for quality replica VXR or Snowflake alloys?

    Hi,

    I'm new here and new to Vauxhalls in general.

    I've just bought an 08 vectra for the Mrs and I'm going to start with some straight forward mods - Coilovers and nicer alloys.

    I can't decided at this point whether to go with a 'vauxhall' look or a more 'euro' look. I know the Euro look will be harder work to make the wheels fit, so I'm thinking more about sticking with Vauxhall style alloys for now.

    I'll probably stick with 18's and a bigger drop for reasonable ride quality, as the car will be the wife's daily driver. It's not going anywhere near a track so looks are more important than absolute handling and unsprung weight.

    There's a place 40 mins from me that will supply and fit the FK AK coilover kit, including full 4 wheel laser alignment for £325 inc vat. As the kit is about £200 I thought that was a pretty decent price really?

    So, where's the best/cheapest place for the replica alloys as I prefer to have these on before slamming the car

    Check ebay, theres loads of VXR replica wheels on there.
    As for the coilovers from personal experience i wouldn't get the FK ones, it might just be because my car is too heavy for the kit but it twangs from the front and knocks from the rear. I'm now taking the kit off and putting some PI lowering springs on to see how they fair.
