      The do match the lines quite well. Might be a good wheel. Plus you see them on the classifieds all the time for good prices.

      I haven't looked for them, but how good are the prices? I think they'd look great on my GLI.

      You can get reps for $500-800, and on the classifieds find sets for about a grand IIRC. Plus a couple of dealers have sales on them every now and then.

      Those are 5x100. your car is 5x112. Running adaptors, or are they 5x112 Aristo reps?
      Jack of all trades.

      Cancelled the wheels. Might get a set later, but for now I like the stockers.

      Yes they were 5x112 reps.

      I'm going to go with something very light weight.



      Right now I need to figure out exactly what direction I want to go with the Beetle... I originally wanted to go low and slow, but now maybe not.

      If you like the R32 wheel, how about the OZ Superturismo GT? It's very similar...

      IIRC they are >20 lbs >22 lbs.

      My favorite wheel though.

      I just got the new window motors, nope still having issues. That is the third repair attempt. Not going to lemon the car, yes in GA you can lemon a car for something that stupid.

      Hopefully VW can get this sorted...

      Relocated my PS reservoir and removed the awful, massive bracket that used to secure it.

      My friend bought a GLI today. I was there for moral support as well as getting my windows fixed for the 3rd time. Still broken btw! And now my window is scratched up so that needs a replacement...

      Sending VW a final repair notice under my lemon law protection. If they do not response within 7 days I win, if the problem is not fixed within 14 days I win. If the problem is fixed but within 3 years later it breaks again I win.

      I just think the Beetle has too many little issues right now. I might ask VWoA for a Sportwagen, and see if they will swap with me. They are usually pretty good about it, especially after 2 weeks of ownership.

      My main thing is, if I go through the lemon law process by the books, which I am, I can wait three years from the final repair date to claim the car as a lemon. Basically I have 24 months to send a final repair notice and then 36 months to go through lemon law.

      I will never own a Ford again, because they basically refused to fix my car and I had to go through arbitration to get anything done.

      VW is generally really good with customer service.
