Anthracite would probably be a good choice :)

White, with a spinner attached (badly) in chrome, with a pink detail strip on the rim, and some stickers of Pokemon on each spoke :)

As a matter of fact, you've decided on the current colour of "chav" then, and are simply being a sheeple.

Anthracite is the new black wheel colour. Gay.

Go for something that stands out and suits your car! :P

You'll get used to it and then it'll feel slow and you'll want more power ;)

Cams won't give you a huge amount of power. I tell you one thing I still love about the 2.0... the torque it has - especially motorway driving. You can be cruising at 70 and leave it in 5th, give it some and you'll be doing tripple figures in no time without any real stuggle. No need to drop down a gear unless you see someone you want to slaughter ;)
