Nice motor in white (I do particularly like the alloys). As above, I wouldn't personally be running diamond cut rims in the winter though as it won't take very many winters at all until the lacquer lifts and they corrode.

Where do you get these types of plates from and are they legal?

The 19" Pretoria alloys are a lot nicer wheel, a lot rarer so don't want to ruin them. Especially when they go for between £1800-2200 for a set. The cadiz alloys were a whole lot cheaper.

Thank you, I was set on pretoria's. I was looking at team dynamics for winter alloys but I saw these genuine cadiz and for the price I paid it makes sense to me, the tread is decent on them and it's easier insurance wise. If they do corrode I won't be too bothered as they're only winter alloys so serve a purpose. I'll ceramic coat them and see what happens.

Not much to report on with the golf, enjoying it more and more everyday. Worth the wait and so glad I went for one!

One job that needed doing was to clean up the door hinges, I used Grime out with a brush, hose and then gave them a going over with Rejuvenate.
