They are called Arospeed RS-11 wheels. They dropped the price another $100 so now it's $699 including tires and lug nuts. Not too shabby. Reminds me of Audi wheels...very nice looking.
I don't know about the grille being very "upmarket". In fact, it only cost me some $6 and change for the material! It does make the car look nicer (to me) though.
I am proud to steal Wil's thunder and announce that so far, we have 16 confirmed attendees (and 16 Proteges) coming to MAPP IV on September 28! If you haven't signed up yet, please do at the following address, which also contains all the info, pics from the three previous MAPPs, location maps and directions you'll need (thanks to Wil):
Oh, and I, of course, will be there! How can you let yourself miss meeting the Meadeball? Will you be able to live with yourself after missing a golden opportunity like this? Sign up!
