    Default Replacement Alloys & Front Grille

    I have an 04 3.0V6 CDTI and I want to tinker with the styling. Nothing to drastic just something to make it mean and moody!!

    I'm looking for guidance on the two aspects I plan to change.

    Firstly, what size alloys can I go to on mine? Fairly sure it has 17" on now. Anyone replaced there's and have some pics to give me ideas?

    Secondly, the front grille! Always hated it. My car is silver. I think a simple honey comb silver grille or maybe plain balck but without the badge and stupid V. Anyone done this or point me in the right direction?

    Cheers chaps!

    Have a look at my pictures on Showoffyourcar...... link in my signature.

    18" Wheels and Irmscher Grille - it is a dark car though.

    Now then mate...in response to the above....Ian C on this site has 20's...so the worlds your oyster as they say...

    Some people say 19's are a alittle harsh, but a lot of people have them on here (snowflakes & VXR ones)....but it depends on budgets - I think 18's are a good option cost vs aesthetics...
