1x 17x7" WRX 5x100 (the originals) with 8+ year old Pirelli P-Zero Nero's
1x 17x7.5" Inovit Redline (8" PFF7 replica) with Yokohama Advan V105's
1x 17*8" Compomotive M05 ex-rally wheels which need some serious straightening as the wobble even at 50mph is truly horrendous! These had BFGoodrich cut slicks but I sold them for more than I paid for the wheels so they can sit there until I find the inclination to get them properly repaired.

Yes, I have a problem...

When they are running well, they are fantastic cars. This looks great.

Ooh that’s beginning to look very nice indeed...

Amazing what a difference a bit of colour can do - even the most cost on the previous pictures looked good...

It really is a stunning colour. Is there a reason they left the spoiler base on the boot lid when painting it?

Turns out the closest off the shelf blend to mine is Maserati Rosso Corsa, although the RC has Xirallic and minor pearl elements to it. For the skirts I'm about to paint I'll have them take these elements out but when it comes to respray it I'll be using the proper RC blend as while it's not an obvious 'sparkle' it definitely glows more than the plain 22G. It's amazing how such subtle things can have such a dramatic effect.
