Anyone tried these wheels?

Hi, I am looking at the two sets listed below. Wanted to enquire if anyone has tried these? They are both TUV approved and look pretty fancy on the FVD site.

FVD Wheels: FVD Brombacher Online Shop - WCD951852S - Wheel - SON - Cup Design - 9.5 x 18 ET 52 - Silver Center / Polished Lip -

KT2 SPLIT: http://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod5180/18--KT2-Split-Rim-Look-Alloy-Wheels---Silver-finish-Porsche-PCD5-130/

I have Veloce wheels and I like them very much. Purchased direct from UK distributor.

Thanks. Love your wheels. Looks like the Veloce, FVD and KT2 Split have a pretty similar look. I am going to do some side by side compares and then factor in the overall cost, weight of wheel etc to make my decision.

I like those wheels but the Boxster is too new for them, they look good on late 70s or 80s cars but not the 90s in my opinion. Also check the weight of those wheels as I am sure the real 3 piece were quite light but not sure how these are.
