don't forget to mention it to your insurance company, should add another £100 per year to your insurance. Consider that over a few years too

I forgot about that lucky I have not brought any yet, haha thank you for reminding me
Unless you colour code the black plastic trim the Monza's will look terrible. Also be aware that the 18" Monza have a diamond cut finish which corrodes very badly and very easily - my advice, don't bother. Is it really worth spending such a big amount on a 05/06 Golf, I would fix the dent first

If you put Genuine OEM alloys on (that would come on that model in the factory) you will only have to let your insurance know you've added them - not declare them.

I'm with an insurance company that does not allow mods. I added alloys to my car and they allowed them because they were made by the vehicle manufacturer. All I had to do was secure them with a locking wheel nut.

So providing you use manufacturer alloys you should see no increase in premium.
think you will be wasting money, first of all the car is not colour coded big mistake. should have got GTI or at least with GTI body kit

What size? 18"? I think they do a rep 19" Monza now

Check out the gallery at auto alloys :

Do you want her lowered till shes crawling all over the ground? Naa only joking, but you might want to lower like 35mm or make it the equivalent height of the GTI, a GTI suits the Monza wheel being that bit lower than a diesel etc

Edit:

GTI side skirts are about £30 each from the dealer (I think), might hide some of the dent Although they are very thin, so maybe not. I remeber some boy on ebay selling them for £100 and you could buy them for half that at the dealer, don't have to be painted either, saying that it was like 8 years ago
