    So thats request #1, those GLI wheels on my WRX
    Then request #2 would just be taking the wheels on the WRX now and just PC them either black or some sort of other darker color..gunmetal or something idk, i'm running out of ideas the wheels are all beat up, you can't tell in the picture but they are chipping all over the place and the clear coat is coming up.

    Thanks ahead of time let me know if you need/want different pictures of either.

    Don't get me wrong i love the VW rims they put on the GLI's... but please don't buy them and toss them on your WRX. One thing you can do is if he sells them cheap to you, you can get good $$ for them on ebay.

    I think it looks corny putting another vendors stock rims on another vendors car. Any person who knows anything about VW, or subaru...or both will know and giggle when they see your car... i know i would. Save up and buy something new.

    I think the wheels look great too. If they're lighter and stronger than what you have right now, all the better.

    It's not like badging a car something that it's not.

    Whats wrong with putting wheels from a stock VW.. they are really nice wheels and i think they look great. obvioulsy i won't be rocking VW center caps..
    And now i'm wingless and the grills a little different. I think i'm going to go with the powdercoating of the wheels i have now just because i found a really good price. 50 bucks a wheel!
    Love how i just found out my neighbor runs a Powdercoating business and does some amazing work

    good news/bad news
    GN: Wheels look amazing and i'm loving how great the PC job was
    BN: Camera got stolen out of my car...just got the window fixed thank god my subie doesn't have a frame around the window or else it would be ****ed up because whoever did it used a screwdriver and messed up the rubber seal around the glass...idk why they didn't just smash it..
    Anyone some more bad news, the centercaps are crappy caps and i can't find a color that matches just right and no matter how many times i spray them they still manage to chip... i'm in the process of finding caps that match decently well that come painted.
    If anyone has any ideas they are 17x8 Konig maxxim knights.
    powdercoated satin black. gotta figure out the dimensions of the center caps but if anyone has any good sites where i can find caps its much appreciated thanks! ill have pics up once my girlfriend gets back in town with her camera sorry for the longg delay
