Well from what I understand Rota is a much more reputable brand than Exel, but regardless, I'm talking about looks alone.

Tough call, I do like the new ones better though. Not feeling the current setup for some reason.

My question is would the new ones look as big as the 18's I currently have, I don't want them to look small like I notice some people's 18's do. :(

Looks looks looks :(

The new ones will look smaller because the spokes are uniform in width.

Just take your money and do something worth-while with it.

Looks is almost everything to me, lol. I'm afraid that the C5 knock-offs are going to look smaller as well.

What about these:

I say leave the ones that you have on the car, and put $$ towards boost

The C5 Replica (new ones) will look smaller because the spokes do not extend all the way out to the outer lip like your old wheels.
If I had to chose between the two, I'd take the second (new) choice. The current set doesn't do it for me. But hey, it's your car! Happy Modding! :approve:

Dude, your current wheels look huge for being 18's, i'd keep, them if i were you... But if you decide to sell i'll take them...

I like the Excels.. for all those that bag on cheap wheels, do you judge a wheel by the cost? or the looks? or the performance aspect of them? Those that say, save your money and buy real wheels, give an example of how much? I notice those that say this are mostly all show and no go.. don't get me wrong, IMPRIMIS you have a nice looking MSM, MrMark: your car is exotic, but when you tell someone, save your money and buy real wheels, what do you mean? There's that set of wheels that are expensive but are banned due to quality, is it HRE's or something? So expensive wheels don't necessarily mean better wheels. I've seen some light race wheels but they look plain and ugly, but they are a grip.

For what its worth, I really like your current set up and WOULD NOT spend money for either of those. Current looks better IMO

I never said anything about buying a "real" wheel
