Or trying your best to blag stuff for free ?

Youre still a dick, by the way :tick:

4 spoke brm's are just as bad.

speedwell never made 4 spoke brm's for aircooled vw's.
i think they did 10" 4 spokes for mini's though?
And I certainly don't agree with that. I don't like them on most bugs, but I love them on Type 4s, especially the 'got wood' US car.

I was actually glad to see someone bothering to make an all new wheel.

I do agree with Tom that MWS fuchs are the worst repro wheel EVER though. Didn't think much to the burner copies either.

that would be me :D till i bought my bug i didnt know what a fuchs wheeel was, and after seeing mine and the mws ones they are obviously nowhere near the same, but as a spare i bought a flat4 copy which is a very good copy, but a lot heavier and not that much more than mws ones :)
and you wanted to swap them for chrome american eagle 5's ;) :crazy:

will you swap my cookie cutters for your early fuch's ;) they bolt straight on don't ya know ;) :D

stunning wheels for a stunning car, if your car had mws fuch's people would not look at it in the same way as they do now, imo.

Needs a set of snide BRMs in my opinion or some TSW hockenheims

Bullshit.

It can help, but there isn't much difference between buying off shelf parts to opening a cheque book to buy rarer parts! I'd rather have off the shelf parts than knackered/worn/nasty 'rare' parts if that was all I could afford ;)

What makes a car special is attention to detail, patience, innovation and vision IMO - this doesn't neccessarily cost ££££s but it does help if you have plenty of cash! :D

if my bug had come with all copies i wouldnt have given a shit, its nice that it came with real ones, but i wouldnt have gone and got some if it hadnt, its just a car i like to drive :)

I dunno, I'd settle for the Flat 4 ones any day.

cheers,

I'd settle for something 1000 other people don't already have.

Originality, in the VW scene.....

That won't catch on :incheek:
