Wash and polish, followed by painting in the 'PZERO' on the tyres. I blame Tim.  ;D

16x7 ET35.
The reason for moving to 16s is to fit 205/45 tyres and get better ride quality.

When I put those wheels (17inch) the ride was so much better, think its because they was nearly 4kg lighter each (tourismo)  pot holes and bumps don't shake the car no more haha

Reduced unsprung weight does help indeed in both ride quality and handling.
I need to order some tyres for them and put them on, they have been sitting in their boxes in the garage for over a year!

Stared at it from the warmth of the front window, watching the sleet fall and thinking Iíve not had chance to wash it for ages!  Hurry up spring...

I know what you mean JL - the roads are pure filth!

I added some upgraded Osram light bulbs to Rory today, a big improvement in night vision over the standard headlight bulbs and a much cleaner, whiter light 8)
Rory the red 595 Trofeo.  My 3rd Abarth, I must be addicted :)

I managed to take advantage of the weather and give Tax the clean she deserves.
A shiny Abarth is a happy Abarth! 😉😁

Sorry to say that the XSR still remains neglected; its absolutely filthy! The sun may be out but any bucket of water will be ice before it reached the car today. So weíre watching the bronze medal curling match instead 😎
