I'm lusting after a Tesla.

I've got it bad. 

If its Nikola, you are too late, he died in 1943 (although both his names seem to be going strong)

How the motor industry has changed.

When I first started driving I bought my first Mini for £20 as a scrapper out of some-one's front garden. It was 12 years old, had 60,000 miles on it and I had to weld on new sills and replace the rear subframe to get it through the MoT.

BRILLIANT car though. A major advance on the Austin A35 I had previously.

don't bother with black alloys - just paint the wheels and trims gloss black, and be prepared to touch them up a couple of times a year.  The only bits on my car that looked their age were the original alloys and now they are painted black you would think they were brand new, and the colour gave the car a much more menacing look.  The pattern of the wheels is fairly irrelevant once they are painted 'cos the pattern recedes.

No. We want alloys on it. Those wheels are hideous!

We can pick a set of rough alloys up for not a lot and get them refurbished and powder coated for not a lot. The new set of tyres will be the expensive bit!

Are they not just hideous wheel trims on steel wheels?

Yes they are.

And no we don't want to just buy a set of less hideous wheel trims.

We can get a set of wheels for £100 and It will cost us £100 to get them refurbished and powder coated. 

It will be ready for some new tyres on the front soon anyway as it has cheap nasty things on, so we will just get a full new set put on the alloys when they are done.
