Nice looking motor :) - the wheels don't appear to be std MV6 ones, have you changed them?

...think they are standard but perhaps re lacquered silver from the sort of original black?
maybe ?

And whatever is behind in the picture looks "intresting" any one hazzard a guess?

So the wheels thing....intrigued now!

Are they standard or not? any gurus know the answer? Must admit I always thought they were,definately irmscher wheels but looking at the anthracite ones I can see the difference.

The anthracite ones are the factory fit.  Prefacelift MV6 wheels are incredibly soft, and incredibly expensive. Its possibly that a previous owner knackered them, and replaced the whole set. Also likely, as the tend to corrode a little, is previous owner had them refurbished...

Ok,sorted then. The wheels are plain silver alloy - havent been painted so guess they have been replaced as suggested!   Not sure about a full refurb at that sort of money - only one wheel has a chip out of it . Think will give the repair kit ago unless anyone has any horror stories???

They may have already been refurbed, which due to sandblasting etc, takes off hte anthracite anyway.  Alloy refurb usually around 50 per wheel...

Yup, there pretty soft alloys, decided against spending 160 to get mine refurbshed

Sold them instead for 210 on ebay.

Added the 210 from sale to the 160 i saved not refurbishing them and spent ONLY 300 on brand new 17" mv6 facelift alloys.

It actually made me money - although there is something about those two tones thats amazing  :)
