      Plenty more here: http://achtuning.com/featured-products/hartmann-mesh-305s-end-up-on-vw-mk5-r32/

      It is a beautiful wheel, but it will slow you down. I was looking at them a year or so back. I can't remember the stats, but when I saw the weight I just dropped the idea.

      They were on my car when I bought it... I think they're more like 28lbs. With tires they were heeeavy. Needless to say, I ditched them post haste.

      Yeah, I want to say they were the same weight or more than my huffs. My R came with huffs on it and in the process of looking for wheels I came across these. The only benefit would have been aesthetics.

      Going to some 9.5" LMs was noticeable compared to those 28 pounds anchors.
