      Well I haven't posted in here for a while. I haven't done too much to my car recently, since it's winter and all I do is work. I added a few zip ties to my splash guard and I forgot to post up that I had picked up one of these...

      Not that big of an update here, I just wanted to post a picture of the wheel. I want to put it in but I had appendicitis so I had to have my appendix removed and spent the weekend in the hospital. Looks like it will be 2 weeks until I can put this in, unless a friend and my brother want to do it for me haha.

      Thanks Paul I appreciate it!! Actually being young and very healthy helped me out a lot. They were shocked I had it because I wasn't in a ton of pain and I was still hungry and eating normal. Basically the symptoms seemed more like kidney stones than appendicitis. I'm already feeling a lot better though.

      Nick, Thanks I'm feeling a lot better now. I get atleast 1 more week off work!!! I'm pumped I finally got a nardi wheel, I've wanted one since I had my WRX.

      Moshua, the front beetle headrests fit right in, the rears dont. I haven't had any time but I have to figure out how to get them to. I'm going to see if it will fit if I trim down the lip thing, at the bottom of the headrest. I need to measure.

      I'm thinking you should go with the wheels you were thinking about, even though it will take a long time to find them.

      I've always liked LM20s but I'm trying to stay away from wheels everyone has haha. If I would have known how popular RS's were going to be on B5s I would have tried to look for something else.

      There are a few Bentley wheels that I like but they're 19s and 20s and those are way too big for my liking.


      I have a set I'm interested in but does anyone know if it's expensive or safe to have them shaved to change the offset? The only reason I'd have them shaved is because I would have to use an adapter/spacer and the offsets are too low right now for me to do that without shaving.

      You can't get much from shaving without seriously weakening the wheel, if its only a few mm if say go for it, but for a large amount def not

      That's what I was thinking. Dang, I might have to try and find this set somewhere else, if I can.

      Yeah I'm not going to risk the integrity of the wheel. I found a place overseas that rebuilds these wheels and I'm going to shoot them an email. In the mean time I'm going to keep hunting for stuff I like. It's just a bummer because I actually found a set. I just need to unload the RS's.

      Do 9's fit alright up front on our cars? Et 18 and what about a 10 in the rear et18 as well? No interest in pulling fenders. My fronts are rolled.
