Aside from the slightly too big wheels, looks like a sharp example!

That's another 510 molested. *scratches off on notepad*

Looks like it's in great condition. I thought it was a Rover when I first saw it.

This was so cleanly done, I just couldn't resist. I'd love it more with different wheels, but it was still amazing seeing this parked a block from my house. I love this color

Oh man put the original wheels back on! I don't think they look good. Same wheel style only 13" or 14" and you could away with it. Looks too much like a toy. Nevertheless- you guys are catching some cool mini cars.

Ruined. Completely Ruined. I hope the car overheats and burns the owners face. Surely if hes stupid enough to molest a 510 he's stupid enough to look into a hot radiator.

The reason the wheels are that big is because they upgraded the brakes. You could maybe go with 1" smaller wheels, but look at the rear brakes, there isn't much room between the caliper and wheel. If you went too small it wouldn't clear. For example I sent my E36 M3 in for paint and I tried to fit E36 328i 16" wheels and they wouldn't clear the brakes. I had to have the 17" wheels just to fit over the caliper.

ruined? you guys must be crazy it doesn't look bad and clearly it has large wheels for a brake upgrade which you can see in the pic.
