Zero-lip Golf

An interesting quirk of the modified VW scene is that the standard is so consistently high, incredible cars like this mkI Golf often pass by with little comment. This is a shame, as the sheer volume of work that's gone into this car is staggering - enlarge the pictures and you'll see that the attention to detail is incredible. From the shaved and polished bay with its shiny trumpets, to the millimetre-perfect stance over those ever-so-lightly stretched tyres, it's an impressive build throughout.
The major talking point here, of course, is the zero-lip construct of the BBS split-rims, their centres standing a long way proud of the baskets and outer faces. This is a look that's starting to pop up here and there on the scene with mixed reviews; it emulates the look of Audi's race wheels in the nineties which hid large brakes behind the splits of their endurance racers, but also shows an unusual and different way to build wheels. A lot of people don't like it. I really do. What do you think...?
