    Definite improvement. I think they are the wheels that came with the 209 with sport suspension option. ? Adharaz

    As long as you like them, that's all that matters.
    I think they are definitely an improvement from the old ones. Would look better still if lowered a tad :)

    ^ What he said - it looks good and the main thing is, that it's your car so your opinion counts the most :)

    Wheels from a "later" generation don't always work well on an "earlier" generation car, but I reckon you judged that well.

    Nice car, updated slightly. :cool:

    Even though those wheels aren't of that generation its definitely a marked improvement over the other boring alloys!

    New wheels look fine IMHO

    They look a lot smoother than the originals, so a definite improvement, while not being obviously "aftermarket"

    I don't really class them as 'aftermarket' as they are genuine MB but I see what you mean.
