Heartbroken over wheels

Well I'm absolutely gutted.

For several weeks I've driven past a VY Commodore at my work's carpark. I love the wheels he had on his car. I looked at them every morning wondering where he got them. I was thinking of taking a photo to photoshop them on the car to see what they would look like. I've searched the net many times to see if I could find who made them.

I've never seen the owner so I could never ask where he got them from. I was even going to put a note on his windscreen to get him to contact me but then remembered something about stalking being frowned upon.

Well the other day my search came to an end. I was reading the latest Motor mag and spotted an aftermarket company who deals in Holdens. They had those wheels advertised. Great thinks I, and gets on their website only to find that they are actually a VY optional wheel on the S

Re: Heartbroken over wheels

Thats got to suck!
Why is it that wheels are SO hard to choose. It took me forever to find the ones I wanted only to find they are not made to suit AU's. Then Forever to find the next best set only to find out the handbrake wont release funds for said purchase.

At least she let me get the AU2 rims to tide me over.

Well that's what I was thinking of when I saw these. As the F6 wheels are growing on me but I'd hate to imagine what they would cost once released.

This is what they would look like on the car.

Re: Heartbroken over wheels

Took me ages to find mine. I'm glad I did take the time though, and didn't settle.

I think I'm the only BA with these rims. (Makes me feel special..lol)
