If it doesn't attach this time, picture is also under:-

Modifications>Suspension/Brakes/etc>What Rims Do You Have? (bottom of page 5).

Apologies

Never thought I would like Gunmetal with Black but that looks good. Do you have any more pictures from the side?

that looks sweet. if you got your door handles painted the same color as the wheels that would look awesome.

Car still rides on standard suspension (first one for me in decades as I've always gone the whole hog as regards mods with low coils, Koni shocks, etc), but the insurance companies gave me a hard time about the wheels and stipulated "no more mods would be accepted".
Also, my driveway is not that user friendly and most of my cars bottom out (I had to resort to ramps to get in the garage with my MR2!!) so best just to leave as is for the moment.

Interesting point with the wheels is that the front tyre/rim combo is 0.5kg lighter than the standard 17" setup and the rear is just 0.5kg heavier than standard which gives an indication as to how light the rims are despite their size. Certainly helps unsprung weight.

ps You get some great body kits, but simply, they are not for me. I love the original design.

Presently insured with AON, but NAB and RACQ also gave me a hard time.

The issue with the garage is major (particularly when it's raining as I had to get out of the car to put the ramps in place!!). Selling the house may be a bit drastic not to mention what the missus may say!

Murray

AON Risk Services Australia Ltd (www.aon.com.au) is an offshoot of one of the largest insurance brokers in the world. Risk is then insured elsewhere, in my case, split between three insurers. Must be high risk!!!

I notice that you havn't got your 19s on the car. If insurance is the issue, I'm happy to give you a contact. Email if you wish.

cheers

ps No, I'm not on the payroll!

I believe that all insurers load the excess for young drivers and possibly the premium if they are a "regular" driver. At my age that's not an issue. Best to declare any young drivers.

I've never had an issue with mods in the past. My MR2 Turbo was lowered 2.5", had 17x8" wheels, 3" mandrel bent exhaust etc, etc all of which were declared and they still insured me.

I'd give them a go. Nothing to lose.

Im paying a large premium at the moment and they wont insure 9.5" wide wheels in the rear, so if AON are a similar price and will insure 9.5" in the rear then im happy, until my warranty runs out and I get a TT then i'll have new challenge to find insurance.

Oh just remembered the other problem, i'll try anyway.

Thanks

Nice Coatsie.

If you're with Aon Personal Insurance you'll be insured with IAG (CGU Insurance)

I actually have a business profile with AON as I use my car for work (70%). Insurers are Vero, CGU and Allianz in varying percentages.

Their attitude may change for personal profile, but I don't see why.
