I don't think it was me, but you can do a search on VZI for MWS just to make sure. Plenty of people other than admin/mods have less than complimentary things to say about MWS. Certain show organisers do not accept proposals from MWS to trade at their shows.

I've had the pleasure of trying to remove a MWS wheel bolt from a bug drum, not as simple as it sounds...

Anyone got a pic of these on a beetle?
No. I have a pic of genuine ones on a Beetle though.

I have a feeling Cosmics are going to be everywhere this coming summer. Shame as they are lovely wheels but they may become the new Fuchs for overdoneness.

Yeah, Shame that MWS have queered the field again with the Cosmics, Porsche pattern Cosmics are some of the coolest wheels known to mankind.

Nobody has said Centerline yet, so I'm going to.
