That look stunning.

Don't forget you want your 436 alloys back or the dealership will put them on eBay!!

Did you get a good part exchange value for the 436m wheels to 624m wheels?

I believe it's £700, which is standard px. for a good conditioned set they take. Saves me trying to take them home in a 'vert with light interior then then the hassle of selling them myself.

Ah that is disappointing, I was expecting more than £700 for a brand spanking set of wheels.

I got a grand for a 6 month old set with 7mm of tyres on them.

Personally I'd have taken them home but if its easier for you....
