Been getting some mixed opinions on the red wheels but mainly good, but to be honest I don't care if people flame me for it, my car, my choice et al.

RE: Benzo E-Cabriolet
I have no idea if I like the wheels or not, I just can't decide!

Stunning car though Nab, you have some balls trying the wheels on the car, like you say I don't think you will get everyone but you won't half make an impact!

I'll work out if I like it soon haha

RE: Benzo E-Cabriolet
I like the colour, maybe would have gone darker to match your interior but thats me.

Nearly bought 0.05s myself.

RE: Benzo E-Cabriolet
Thanks guys..

I would have gone darker on the wheels, initially went for candy red but on the test wheels they wouldn't go dark enough and have the powder coat lacquer sit properly on top - kept bubbling and when they were being baked the layers of silver and red were reactivating and running so had to ditch that idea and went for rosso corsa with a silver sparkle over it.

They look a lot different in *bright* sunlight, I'm more than happy with them but will experiment with a couple of the wheels in a fortnight when I'm free - one with clear plastidip and the other with the metalizer to see what effect they have, the clear turns everything to a darker, "satin" finish and the metalizer whilst based on the clear adds extra metal flake on to the finish. Plus they will protect the wheels from stone chips and weathering, will see how they turn out though. Did the lugs red with metalizer and they turned out well, decent match to the rims Icon_smile

Been after 0.05's for a while but 3SDM don't half take the piss to get back to you which is pretty shocking, only got hold of these by chance. Reckon they're consumed with their attack on the market in the states and aren't much fussed about orders over here - just my opinion!

I had a set pre-ordered before release, and got fed up of being messed around so got my deposit back.

They've had nothing but problems according to them, yet they do seem to be able to supply the US market while UK orders arent ready.

Really nice one it is. If you tell more about it like power and pick up, then its double the fire. Specially the rims are superb and attractive.
