Lizzie the 17" alloys on my Elite[unlike yours mine's a 3L]have more "slabby" spokes so look a lot different to yours.I don't know if there was a changeover date for the different styles or not-someone will know better or whether it was a case of all 3.2s having your style of alloy.

Ah, right thanks Baza :y

Just seeing if I could get a cheap spare alloy, but it is not essential really :D ;)

Best idea would be get in touch with him and ask if the ones he's got are the same style as yours and go from there :y

Changeover was around 2001...

What sort of condition does this spare alloy need to be?

I have a 2002 3.2 Elite saloon in this colour (Z594) with tan leather (in very good nick) which I'm breaking if anyone needs anything.....

Yes, I would like the set of across the top of the radiator plastic covers that clip together. Also the two round plastic windscreen wiper, nut covers and the set of four round plenum plastic bolt/ nut covers.  In addition how much for one 17" ELITE alloy wheel?   :y

I think the 'snowflake' alloy was introduced late in 2002 for the 2003 MY cars. You see some '52 Elites with them on; the majority were on '03 cars on wards.

I have all those plastic bits Lizzie. Send me a PM if you would. As regards the alloy - this car came with the older 5 spoke alloys. I do have a set of the later 'snowflake' alloys, but ideally I would want to keep them / sell them as a set of four.

They do!!! They look just like (or very similar to) the frost / snowflake symbol on the winter mode button next to the gear-lever on an auto.....

Later Omega rims being 'snowflake' alloys is my description of their appearance to differentiate them from the earlier Elite alloy. And looking at the above link ^, I know which look more like the snowflake symbol to me......

ahhhh you have a major misunderstanding   :)  you appear to think that "snowflake" wheels are the same .. .. you fail to realise that ..

"Scientists estimate the chances of two snowflakes being exactly alike are about 1 in 1 million trillion (that's a 1 followed by 18 zeros). Meteorologists think that there are 1 trillion, trillion, trillion (a 1 with 36 zeros!) different types of snowflakes"

... so getting hold of a set of 4 will be just a tad difficult !!!
