Thanks for the comments :)

@sol-lude the wheels are actually gun metal grey :D they look better in the flesh. I know some people look down at Rota's, but would much rather have a brand new set of these than some branded used ones. You never know what you are getting, so many wheels have been bent or buckled and will wobble at high speed regardless of tyres/balancing.

On another note, I am considering getting the window trim below the front windows wrapped as they are discoloured. Is there any other fix? I don't want to remove or replace as the clips will just break and you can't buy them new anymore anyway. Is there any product that will bring them back up to scratch?

Lo :D
I had My window trim covered in vinyl wrap for a while but My wind deflectors kept cutting into it and it looked awful.
I actually bought a brand new set of window trims direct from My local Honda dealer earlier this year.
Not cheap mind :shock:
I haven't refitted My deflectors as I don't want to mark them :roll: :lol:
Cheers ;)

Thanks @toadster & @newkid

Has anyone removed these before? I assume I am going to need a load of clips as well?

Also, does anyone know what these trims are made of? Painted metal? Rubberized aluminium?

Lo :D
I was just going to post the Honda part numbers and got beaten to it :roll: :lol:
The mouldings came with all the clips already attached when I got mine.
They did cost quite a lot though.
Total was £228-74 for both including VAT. :shock:
Cheers ;)

Not painted metal more rubber over metal.
