      OT: Goodnight, sweet prince

      Most of us I'm sure don't check the 'appropriate' forum frequently, but I saw this on CNN today. Almost as momentous as the passing of the Beetle in Mexico, I think. :beer:

      Hi gang-

      so I'm up for 40k miles (64,000km) service. My regular dealership quoted $600 for this, NOT including the DSG service - not necessary for me for another 25,000 km since the mechatronics...

      Hate to pee in the cornflakes, but doesn't powdercoating usually weaken the metal, especially with aluminum wheels? :confused:
