Default I im going to be buying an 04 STi soon but it has polished BBS's

would there be any interest in them? im sure someone likes shiny things on here. i for one cant stand them... but of course thats my own opinion lol

possibly a trade for a set of gold BBS's? maybe a straight out sale? If i get interest and as soon as i pick up the car, ill put up a FS thread.....

im just wanting to see if anyone would want them...

Polished or chrome painted? I would think polished would look more like the wheels on the STI Limited (even though they're Enkei and not BBS).

+1 my guess is chrome plated too... I've seen ads on ebay selling chrome plated STi wheels.

not that this would change the OP's opinion of not liking them, I guess... hate is hate

Yeah, you'll sell those 04 BBS faster then you can closer your browser even if they've been dipped in chrome.

Polished aluminum, if done right, can look almost identical to chrome. Those very well could be polished.
