Sorry for the thread resurrection...some asked questions that I didn't answer a few months ago, plus my car looks different now so I wanted to post the pictures up! Enjoy. I still have not refinished the wheels...kids take up just about all of my free time. I only make time for the essentials with these kids learning to walk and talk. Oh I am also going stemless when I get my next set of tires next month too. That should be pretty sick. I am going to try and refinish the wheels too but that means the car is going to sit in the driveway while I am refinishing them. I refuse to play with my coilover settings so I can fit the style 44's back on lol.

They came on my bbs's when I bouth them. Are you trying to fit them onto other bbs's? Are you talking about the emblem or the whole center cap?

Hmm, thats a little pricey, not for new ones but knowing that they have been around for a while I wouldn't want to spend $600 bucks a piece on them. That is sick though man, I wish I had 18's

Thanks alot Stanc3, I still have much more work to do but it is definately coming along. As for the lip, I actually think that that Hartge one is one of the best I have seen too. Most of them look like crap imo.

I have been getting a TON of PM's regarding the BBS centers that I have on my car, so I ordered them from Ioffer.com here is the link to the ones I bought:

http://www.ioffer.com/i/101039597

I would throw on some extra super glue when you put them on because mine started to peel of in a couple of days. I put super glue on them, and haven't had a problem since! Had them almost a year and no problems other than the peeling which doesnt happen any more.

SIDENOTE: I am refinishing the Style 5's as we speak! Pain in the ass but they are going to look amazing. I will post pictures later!
