    Thread: Traded In 4 Rings And Got 2 Letters

    1. 10-03-2011 08:36 PM #1
      well here i am
      today i traded in my b7 a4:

      (it went back to stock)

      for a 2012 GTI

      (proper pics to come soon i suppose)

      but yeah so far im very happy with the car
      i will miss the audi but it was getting old

      as for plans for the GTI im not quite sure...being a lease i dont think i will go to crazy
      plus im sort of tired of the whole "stance" scene anyway so if anything is done to the car it will be conservative

      my last VW was a mk2 jetta with a VR swap...needless to say im glad to be back in a VW

      Why do the Audi wheels look off center, in the wells?

      And what has most to do with it? That may explain some (I suspect nothing), but it looks like the rear axle is not attached or something. Just curious... I imagine maybe there is no explanation and or no problem.

      they are CO's!

      they are pretty much identical except for the "motorsport" print around the lug holes
      these wheels are just plain cast where as the CH's are some other sort of cast

      the CO's came in et44 whereas the CH's came in et50, the CO's are about $200 cheaper and 1lb lighter...

      to me its a no brainer...i would never buy CH's when i could have these lol

      they are also OEM Audi wheels for their S cars

      got the exhaust on today...needs some tweaking so it will sit right but at least its on lol
      dual exhausts are such a pain in the ass...i could NEVER get the HKS on the RX-8 to sit properly
      one of the tips was about .5 of an inch in where the other one was about .5 of an inch out...
      not super noticeable but i knew and it bothered me lol
      so im having the some problem with this one...tips are not straight so once i get more time ill get under there and loosen things up and move stuff around
      but it looks good and sounds good and once fitment is spot on ill be !00% satisfied
      then maybe ill get some pics of it...
