Man, those are sweet wheels. Am I right in assuming that they're made by BMW? Very nice indeed!

Cheers guys. Glad you like them The BMW M.Sport wheels are lovely but due to the design are very vunerable to kerbing so I tend to drive very carefully when parking at the side of the road. They are only for club functions and shows etc. I have the BMW type 42 wheels for everyday driving. They are made by BBS for BMW and are a more robust wheel and as they are only 16" they do have a more compliant ride.

Aww, no auto-x on em then eh? 318's are fun little autocrossers. Not enough power to get you into trouble but in an excellent class with the stock miatas.
