      ^^^ find a wrecked TT or R32

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      I helped my dad replace my front brakes, which were still the originals from 2003....Hopefully the new ones last just as long. I also wanted to replace my daisy wheels with the original set, but those tires are worn out. So Im stuck with the daisies for the winter unless I find a good deal on another set of tires....

      I (re)-tightened the oil return line from the turbo to the oil pan after finding about a quart and a half of oil on my garage floor this morning!

      you have to buy adapters to run audi wheels or any other bolt patterns on our cars, basically its a spacer that bolts on then has the 5x112 bolt pattern for you to bolt the wheel too
      this is my set to run the MkV huffs on my beetle

      ECS tuning has them for 320$ in 20, 25, and 30mm so they are like spacers also.

      depends on the Audi. First gen TT wheels bolt right up (MKIV Chassis like the new beetle).

      or adapt-it-usa sells non-hubcentric adapters. Some people will whine about that, but I am on my 3rd set with no issues.

      3rd set because of different sizes (spacers)?
