I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Those look great on a Zed.

I can get a set of these ...was thinking to allow a refurb on mine. Now I know to get them
Who says size doesn't matter? After a straight 6 3.0 litre....Its hard to go back .

Had it out for a run this afternoon. Handling is much improved. The car likes the 17's and I think the additional 5mm offset each side on the front has had a positive effect on the pivot radius reducing shudder. The reduced side wall profile is probably an influence also. So far a win win change. Eibachs next. I feel the springrates on the z are a little to high. The progressive Eibachs should allow the initial softness to keep the tyres grounded as opposed to the stock linear springs sharpness. Fingers crossed but Scottish b roads are getting more and more fun. Not an evo but no bad. :)
