Gotta add my agreement on the cool pic as well.  Also, I think that the GTI
alloys look the best on the Mk.1 Scirocco.  I might look toward switching
my teardrops (which don't look too hot on the Mk.1) to those.  They also
look nice on the Quantum.  And yeah, they look awful when painted body
color (excepting black of course).
