Yours would be a pain to clean, much like my Fikses on my 911 were. At least yours are black. However, I find my Carrera wheels pretty darn easy; I can fit my whole hand in and clean the entire inside with ease (I don't like the inner rim to show dust and dirt).

o well the inside is black, and clean or dirty it looks the same, if they were silver inside that would be a different story.
but honestly these wheels take me a minute per wheel to clean, the BBS's that were on before were almost half hour a piece hahah, so cleaning is not an issue at all, and i think they look GREAT on the car, but i guess i like change, so no matter what wheels i would have put on i would get tired of them hahah

I know how you feel. I might be interested.
I have the 18" light alloy turbo look wheels ($2,735.00 option) and the color crested wheel caps ($170.00 option).

I'm in Florida. How would we do the swap?

dj,

Your wheels are probably my favorite look out of any on the forum. I am really surprised you want to change. Good luck making a swap/deal ... I am sure someone will take you up on it!
