Need something new for next season? Here is your chance. We seem to have a set of wheels for sale…shocking.
I picked these up off their original owner recently. The wheels are in great overall shape and are still original (sticker, seals, bolts, valve stems, etc.) All the bolts, centre caps, etc. can be had new from Work if one were inclined but that would only be if you wanted to re-do them. As they are the condition is GOOD. The lips have some usual clear coat imperfections but I actually didn’t even notice until after I washed and dried them. The paint of the faces is near flawless. 2 of the rear lips have some minor curb (I can’t even call it rash), nothing some light sanding wouldn’t COMPLETELY clear up.
The tires have decent tread left, especially the fronts, but they are from 2002 so they are starting to crack a little. They are basically a throw in but if you are serious about buying I can have them removed.
$2600 or best reasonable offer. These wheels retail for the same cost as LMs, and from what I can gather these are harder to come by (although not harder to find parts for as Work still makes them). I am not looking for trades unless it’s something very unique. If they don’t sell I will replace my LMs with them next year.
This year seemed to be a total 180 from what we came down into last year. Nearly no rain, clear skies, nice weather, and a hell of a lot of dope cars. It seemed this year the outcasts were even more prevalent then years before.
I do still have to produce the show footage. Coming back from that weekend with a folder sized at over 40gb, I have had my work cut out for me, both with photos and a whole lot of video after feeling terrible for not having much last year.
Manufacturers….manufacturers EVERYWHERE!!! DTM and Super GT have announced that both of their regulation packages will be based on this years DTM specs. What does this mean? The possibility of Nissan, Toyota (Lexus) and Honda facing of with Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in DTM events and visa versa. This also makes both series more attractive to other manufacturers. Lotus, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Porsche? I’m hypothesizing here obviously. But as demonstrated the V8 series. If you present series specs that call for relative performance parity….manufacturers WILL come. Revamping the V8 series will see Nissan and Mercedes join the Holden and Food show for 2013. The world two greatest touring car series will continue to put on a show for years to come. Moreover my predictions for this years 2012 season were slightly off. Paffet and Spengler are in the running for the tile at this weekends Hockenhiem GP. I predicted Paffet as Champ; I hope I’m wrong. I also said BMWs season will be a development campainged. Definately wrong on that one. While last in the manufacturers points, Spengler’s had 3 wins and a shot at the title, Farfus has 1 win and will take the rookie crowd over my ambitious prediction of Robert Wickens.
