g'day guys i have a choice of either AUII XR8 Rims or EL GT Copies which would better suit my white car? (The EL GT's are in champagne) i think the AU ones would suit better but i havent seen them in the flesh and i need some opinions. cheers.

I agree, the ELGT's look brilliant on EF/EL's and champagne won't clash with the colour of your car

I'm going to say the AU2/3 17's because they're silver. I'm not really a fan of gold wheels but its your choice.

I would have said EL GT but i don't think white on gold would go to well, chances are it will suit! If not go AU lll

I'd take the AU's. I prefer them and think the silver will look better with white than Champaign.

Can't go past the EL GT's, but if they're only styles then you must also consider if you want genuine or non genuine parts. GT's look good on white cars, just like the one that is posted above.

I think the AU's are a bit fat, too much like the new senator rims on the Holden!!!
