Finally after nearly 3 weeks these bad boys have arrived and been fitted! They’ve only been on a day but can’t help feel they’re a bit marmite!
What are your thoughts? (Caliper colour will be changed).

Hey mate , i think the rest of the bus carries the wheels off rather than the other way round ....if you get me ?
yup, totally get it, just thinking the gloss black lip detracts from the rest of the wheel, maybe a colour change would be best?

I think it all ties in rather well, black goes with the gloss black mirrors, sportline grill.
Nice choice and fit well

I’d have to agree look very nice indeed.👍. What colour are you thinking of changing the calipers too? Maybe a gloss black front splitter, all tho your current one looks nice. Maybe put a pic of the whole side of your bus up

Nice! Very Nice.! That’s looks very sexy. The yellow calipers don’t look to bad, maybe gold or black calipers if you decide to re paint but look okay as they are. I also like your front splitter as it is but if you went for a gloss black it would then be gloss all the way around the bottom, side bars,splitter and rear bumper protector. But either way those wheels look top notch.

Not something you see daily on transporters definitely stand out from the crowd.

whats ceramic coating?
Hey Bez, Its an alternative to wax as it lasts for years not months on long as you maintain the correct cleaning methods (no drive in car washes or hand washes). Ultimately it’s a coating that you apply in specialist liquid form that protects the paint from swirl marks and light scratching and usual debris. It stops the build up of tar and dirt on the paintwork making it far easier to clean and keeps the glossy look! Not cheap but certainly well worth the cost.

Ok that’s sounds pretty good. I was only asking about wax and polish the other day. Is this something you do or paid to have it done, just looked on YouTube, if you do it what products do you use. Sorry to highjack your thread

Lol, no problem. It’s usually applied by a specialist. It’s a big vehicle to apply too and they will also have to prepare the paint work too with stage 1 or 2 correction dependant on condition. My bus cost me £1200 to have done.
