      Can you hear the fan come on when she's hot?

      Interesting, I've had four different sets of 185/60 R14s on four different sets of wheels and none of them have rubbed on my car (2dr). That being said, I'm not sure it's quite as low.

      I'd say a Quantum wagon is rarer than a Fox wagon, so that's a cool find. I assume it was just your friend's lack of knowledge of obscure VWs in general, but your Fox being an 89 and the Quantum...
