Should be the same company... I know this only as I had a set of them in the 80s...

they are still made in a 15 inch size it looks... :-) They have done a small cosmetic change but I am 95 percent sure that's the one

yes i think you are right, have you noticed the second image appears to be a second car as the center of the rim has a sliver end cap, rather than black on the first image

I think they done at least 2 cars for the episode, ive seen the behind the scenes pics somewhere, probably in one of the KR books.

Are you doing something mad to your car we should know about Rob ? lol
