    Anyone looking for some AMG wheels? The wife is taking the Merc and I'm taking our Passat wagon. My wife destroys nice wheels, so they're coming off and hitting the market. They're refinished, with brand new tires.

          Yeah. Text me bro. I had one done locally at a joint in Kirkland. Top notch work.

              What was a 1" crack now goes all the way to the end of the frame rail. I may not be able to keep this car after all :(

                Rich's Custom Upholstery. I almost had my interior redone by him, he's got an e30 vert of his own, always has cool stuff in his shop and doesn't seem too pricey.

                  I don't want to play with staggered wheels on an AWD car. The Passat is heavy and you have to rotate the tires regularly, or it shreds the tires quickly.

                    It other news, I'm daily driving the wagon. I'm stoked that I can haul all my camera gear in it.

                            He was 600 more than the place I went to for my Wifey's vert top.

                              Yikes, that's rough. What'd you pay? And what'd you think about the new top?

                                Put the Mercedes 5 spokes off the SUV's on it.



                                Like so

                                Not staggered and something like 18x8 or 18x9 IIRC.
