I bought a set of deep dish Exip / Gutmann (BBS look) alloys earlier this year and I'm starting to look into getting them refurbished over the Autumn / Winter.
I was just wondering whether anyone on here knew what the period correct finish would have been back in the late '80's and early / mid '90's when they were supplied new / available as an accessory via some dealers.
From what I can gather via searching and pictures online they seem to have been either:
1 - Full silver.
2 - Full polished.
3 - Black centre with silver or polished outer rim.
4 - Body coloured centres (blue/red/white) with silver rim - but I assume this was an owner modification to emulate the Dimma split rims.
They're eventually going to be fitted to my phase 2 Miami Blue GTI, which has the optional dealer bodykit fitted, hence why I was wondering about the period correct finish, but equally which finish would suit the car best.
On a side note, if anyone has any pictures from their time of ownership, with these rims fitted / in different finishes, it may help too as some of the images I've found searching online have been replaced by the P500 Photobucket image when you click the link to view them.
