I'll be going for a 'lets brake a lot' drive tomorrow, to get rid of all that rust.
Very shiney! Aren't they C209 x 4 front wheels? If they are you must park atleast 6feet from the kerb as the faces stick out so much.

Thanks! Everyone was recommending the GTechniq C5, so I went for it

Ha-ha, I probably would park like that now, anyway ...

These are 18" AMG III 7Jx18 ET54:



I have a slightly wider tyres fitted - GoodYear EfficientGrip Performance 225/40, so it's a comfier and quieter ride, plus a tiny bit more protection for the alloys, not that I'm ever going to test it
