Yes Blade there is. Go to http://www.ca-automotive.co.uk/home.php they specialise in BMWs and MERCs but they are a DPE supplier.

If you do to this page: http://www.ca-automotive.co.uk/prod...eXBlPWU5MCZjYXRfaWQ9MjEmY29tcF9pZD00Ng==.html it gives you full details on DPE wheels, including base prices too.

I was considering LS10 but I just can't make up my mind, when it comes to choosing wheels for my car I'm like a women trying to choose what clothes to ware :D no offence ladies :p

lol SAJ, all blokes are the same when it comes to their cars...Thanks for the info. Wheels like clothes are a personal thing, but I quite like the 5 spoke design Audi chose for stock. The DPE's follow the principal but raise the game a bit. Like you though SAJ, I don't want to get it wrong or make my car look 'chaved up'

Thanks MDG, I did look at those before, nice wheels but without drilled discs I don't really want that much air between the spokes. Not really wanting chrome rims either, away from the badges and grille theres not much chrome on the car and over here polished wheels still look too 'Stateside' for me. I really like the standard wheels but as we've all said they sit too far inside the arches and although I'm using spacers, I'd be happier if the wheels themselves did the job.

With the LS5s you will have about as much air between the spokes as you can get. They are a very open design and show off the brakes considerably. I agree with you though, the factory wheels are excellent. I really miss the look of those on my car. Although my favorite OEM's are the R8 wheels.

I know Quattrings but the LS5's look about as good as anything I've seen yet on an S5. R8 wheels are similar to S5 standard 19" but you're right they look stunning.
