I had a bit of a dilemma when I sold my golf back- to keep the mint condition OE Porto wheels or my cooler but slightly worn aftermarket rims. I ended up keeping the cool wheels.

Those VW wheels I linked are $200 for all 4 and you could paint them dirt cheap or even get them powder coated for less than new wheels at America's Tire. There are knock-off BBS wheels in that group within your price range. There are even some genuine ones under $1K. I saw some gold ones that I think would pop with your white exterior. That's the direction I'd go, gold or some pop color...I've seen a white BMW and a white bug with pink wheels, for example Lime green...hahaha...

The ones I'm looking at are around $2-3K...but I'm after a specific look

The photos aren't very clear, but I don't see much, if any, rust on that car.

Correct as far as I can tell. One of the benefits of living in California, specifically So Cal. Next to no rust even on cars by the beach cities. This car seems to have come from money as it is from the Malibu area. At this point still loving the car!

Oops, posted that on the wrong thread. I would hope there's be no rust on a '15. Wouldn't expect that unless it was a Chrysler. :-)
