    btw Alex. In the original picture can you zoom to see what it says under the wing mirror? Just wondering what it was.

    I like that, it's one of the options I'm considering.

    I merged lots of different OZs in Photoshop but the originals I copied looked a lot brighter than those.

    I still don't like those red mirrors though but even they are not as bad as the chrome ones on the 500A elsewhere on the forum.

    But then probably quite a few are appalled at the idea of the red wheels in the first place. Each to his own.

    That's the original, Chris, so unfortunately I can't tell what it says.

    Someone asked me for a pic of an Esseesse with the titanium wheels.  Gotta say, I like that, too...

    Sold my first Esse Esse with Titanium wheels last week, still waiting for the kit to arrive but they will be fitted to a black car. If we all liked the same thing, everything would be the same. Life would be dull

    very true!
    The red wheels look ok. Personally the I like the GPA in white the least out of the 3. Keeps us all different!

    I like the look with the titanium wheels too.

    After Old Boy's report, I think I'm going to try one.

    I quite like the red, although I wouldn't spec that combination.

    Those titanium ones on the esseesse though look just brilliant.

    Personal choice, but I don't like the titanium ones on a white car.  Also not entirely convinced by red.
    I think either black or white look best on a white car.  ;D

    Apologies for the rushed Photoshop work on these. OZ Ultraleggera wheels in different colours.

    Thanks for the effort. With 4 stood together, I think I actually like the red.

    I've got a few weeks before I make my final decision but at the moment I'll probably go for the red Ultras. They're lighter than the red Superturismos shown in the first pic and hopefully quite a bit lighter than the standard wheels and so should reduce unsprung weight. I'll be keeping to stock 17 x 7 size but changing to Continental Sport Contact 3s.

    Mind you I like a four colours and I haven't even tried the kit yet. Those kit wheels remind me of cartwheels though. Doubtless my mind will change regularly until I place an order.
