Found them on ebay. Made by EtaBeta in Italy. I painted the inside of the rim flat black to keep them looking cleaner longer. Something I've been doing for years. An unexpected surprise benefit is the contrast makes the face of the rim really pop! My neighbor actually pointed it out. Strongly recommend it. Just used a brush and some patience!

The car and the rims look great, that was a great catch on eBay. I got mine fixed for $200, but I have to have one more refinished. Mine's black too, I like that color.

I lucked out and found an HKS Camp2. I also purchased a GVIF-07 Video Interface. Just have to hook it all up. Soon!

Time to work on my page! Got the nav screen gauges in. So nice knowing when it's up to operating temp!

For just a little more sound, I installed an OEM Jaguar XK N/A mid-pipe. This combined with pulling the no.19 fuse gives me just the sound I want for little money!

Recently purchased a Bovee bluetooth adapter for the ipod integration system. Honestly haven't tried it yet as I have an old 4th gen ipod that works fine.

This is what the fluid looks like at 50k miles on the right.

Very, very nicely done.
And the detail on the hood vents is quite elegant too.
