      Why jump down 53PL-50AAA-VW611BAN's throat? He was merely sharing his experience. One of the issues with ebay is there are many times a seller lists an item for more than it can be obtained...

      I had looked into this about three years ago. While the concept sounds good, the problem is that the infotainment unit and CD changer power on as soon as one inserts a key into the car. An a/b...

      I would think that with a little effort, the ones I linked could be modified to fit. The size looks right.

      Under $12 USD for a set of four vs. $40 each for the "genuine" versions. Hmmm...

      Can you afford $12?

      These should fit.

      IMHO, it would not be inconceivable that an alternate application of the word "crap" would be in the context of how it looks when nice, expensive wheels...

      Main reason for the power struggle is "reportedly over difficulties in breaking into the lucrative US market."
