It is cast into the face of the wheel, behind the centre cap, between the bolt holes.

Bargain, the ET35's are pretty sought after, and quite rare.

The paintwork on your car looks incredible. Is it original? What valeting products do you use?

Those mats are lovely, circa £50? I would always be worried about ruining them though, so I have the rubber ones instead.

Took a risk and got some 300mm brake calipers off ebay for 40 quid for both. This will be an upgrade 258mm > 300mm

Arrived today and were in a bit of a sorry looking state

Posted Image

Dismantled them and all seals and pistons were in good condition

Posted Image

So carried on with the refurb, after an hour or two with the dremel and applied first coat of Silver

Looking good so far
