    During the summer months. Although original plan was to get a sets of Honda Storms but missed out the new sets deal from HH so snapped these CW wheels for a decent price. Maybe not everyone's liking

    White alloys for the win:Hooray: ! so retro reminds me of the 90s and Tommi Mäkinen and his WRC Evo.

    Thank you all for the nice comments :Grin: Maybe one day if i ever manage to get hold of a set of mint Storms will replace the CW wheels lol. The white wheels are nightmare to keep them clean especially this is my daily drive regardless of the weather.

    Very nice looking motor mate, I also prefer the darker wheels, after having white wheels on my VFR400 I can sympathise with you trying to keep them clean and I only had to worry about two.

    My oh my next to blue pearl Red would have been my choice they seem to be a very rare commodity. There's only two that I've seen one a saloon weasel and the other a tourer.
    I love the white wheels they really make your car look the real deal package. I saw one similar to mine recently with white wheels really looked good.
    Are those mugen wind deflectors? I saw some recently on E bay and was wondering what they would look like fitted now I know very nice.

    Epsilons were originally clear coat over the diamond cut outer facing, with a pale silver in the apertures.
    The Pentas were the darker alloys.
    I like the original Epsilons.
    IMHO, they would have been stunning on a Milano red 7th Generation

    I had Pentas on my Type-S when I first bought it but saw these Santino's on a Milano red accord owned by a member in Derby.
    I loved them. He was selling the car and did a swap with someone else I hadn't been around for a little while and missed out in them.
    A couple of months later the guy who had them was part ex ing his accord and put them up for swaps. CJ picked up on this immediately knowing I wanted them and we did a swap well almost but the rest concerns a staff member elsewhere which I don't want to mention. I like the way they give the car a different dimension not your standard graphite grey Pentas .

    Santino's Alloys wheel are like the unicorns of 7h gen alloys wheels. They only came on the 7th FLC on special order with a lead time of 2 months. Made from magnesium alloy they are the lightest most durable wheels made they are masterpieces.. I gave those wheel for you micky blue eyes.

    BTW when I ordered the my 7th Generation I wanted Santino's but did not want to wait 2 months my car was delivered in 4 days from Avonmouth.
