Yeah Shaun i put the new alloys on the C2 but im putting the old ones back on and these are going on the C if they will fit because they are 4x100/4x108 ET40 so about right for a C

I might have a problem with the alloys actually because the centre bore is 73 and i have spigot rings to make it 65 but what is it on a C? 56.6 i was told but im unsure

I may be able to help you out with a few bits mate (rear fogs for example)

Be prepared to keep respraying the V grille. I got fed up of having to keep doing that with my matt black one so splashed out on an Irmy one in the end

I would love your rear fogs but it would be a load of hassle taking my old ones out and sending them etc

It's not actually that hard tbh, and I wouldn't recommend tinting yours when they're bolted to the car anyway!! Up to you though

Jack rear of the car up, remove 2 or 3 torx bolts. Slide skinny hands and wrists up behind arch liner , unplug the fogs, remove them, spray the lights with a few coats of tint spray, re fit. Job done
