Dimma’s definatley look better with 17’s as they fill the arches far better than 16’s. To be honest, I’d try 18’s that really filled the arches and slam the thing to the floor, as there hasn’t been one Dimma I’ve seen that looks really low. Shame, as it may give the old timer a new lease of life!!!



Twin headlights do make the front of the 205. What I want to see is a Dimma with some really modern looking stuff on it like the Ecosse fog lamps etc. Imagine one of the awesome bonnets from Pug Performance on this… it would look the business then.



Well… there’s been a lot of debate lately

Concerning Dimma’s finest. There are those

that  the classic wide arch kit is 80’s and

shouldn’t be mag featured. Well Redline

thought different and featured this stunner!

(left) Colour coding gone extreme. Not my cuppa tea but everyone to their own I suppose. Personally, in a car like this, I would’ve gone all chrome as that in my opinion is far classier. Still a lot of hard work has gone into this brute!



The first ever issue of Max Power had a purple Dimma featured called The Purple Trobbing Monster. From that day I swore I would have one… here we are, god knows how many years down the line and I still haven’t!
