      No. They do not.
      I will keep my eye's open for something with dog's.

      My apartment allows dogs. It's kind of a sh-t hole, though.
      The only reason I'm there is due to the 2.5 car garages you can rent.
      I pay $440 for a 1 bdrm (including the extra $45 for both stalls of the garage).
      It's an old building, and my bathroom and kitchen are both carpet, but it's worth it for the garage.

      I can do wheels. You pick the color at http://www.columbiacoatings.com and I will do the work for a small fee. You can get a pound of media for like 15 bucks. Check out the site, order the powder and we'll make some arrangements.

      Damn, I'd probably take you up on this if it wasn't for the fact that there's a guy over in Grand Rapids too that wants to buy my whole golf front end setup. BUT, of the $225 I'm making, $100 could go to gas.

      First question... why are you getting a new exhaust? Simplify your answer then ask yourself which best fits your needs.
      My exhaust is stainless and I paid a pretty penny for it. But I plan on keeping my car a long time and the midwest winters can be brutal. I'd say that what I spent on my exhaust was definitely worth the money.

      im getting a new exhaust for 3 main reasons. 1, i need to properly fill my gli rear valance with a nice tip. 2, i want to HEAR my car when i drive it. heh. and 3, if its going to bring with it even an ounce of power gain, thatd be a nice touch. it seems like whatever i get, it should be stainless since i live in wisconsin. i just cant figure out if itd be smarter to drop $600 to get one thats 2.25"(the suggested size for mk4 2.0s) but no lifetime warranty, or save $175 and get a 2.5" with a lifetime warranty(which has mixed reviews amongst 2.0 owners regarding power loss).

      agreed. I plan on keeping my corrado forever, even though I don't drive in the winter, I still bought a stainless system and the cops can ******* if I'm going to ever change it. If you don't plan on keeping the car for a long time, it's easier to go aluminum, but if you drive in the winter, it's a strong reason to go stainless. Meh to the warranty. I love my techtonics exhaust, the cops don't though.

      well thats the thing, its not just the warranty thats making the decision tough. its also an extra $175 i save if i go WITH the one that comes w/ the warranty. the only downside is the piping is 1/4" larger...
      so its like $175 + lifetime warranty vs. a possibe loss of some power.

      I don't understand what you are talking about. What does selling your Golf front end have to do with powder coating????

      Glad to see ya back online, turd.

      It's good to be here but sucks that I have to get rid of my baby VW. It's a hard pill to swallow, but so is watching my son get the shaft from his psycho mom. I have been doing anything and everything I can on the side to make as much money as humanly possible. I figured selling the Rado would be easy, but for some odd reason, I haven't sold jack off it yet except for the block and auto tranny. Plus I'm waiting on Chud to pick up the shell.

      Sorry, My friend that is doing the powdercoating for me lives in Grand Rapids, and I'm also selling my front end to someone else that lives there. Hence, I need to make a trip out there to sell the parts AND get the powdercoating done at the same time.

      I think Bunnah was commenting in the long list of testing and requirements for the job.
      Hey Corey... what was the place you had recommended for mounting my summer tires?

      $13 total per wheel! Mounted, balanced and a new stem. They had no problem with mounting weights on the inside.

      Hope you guys are all parked inside. Looks like some heavy hail headed up through the valley right now, and tornado warnings all over the place. A couple of tornadoes have been spotted apparently just south of Oshkosh.

      Oh yeah, I forgot to ask. Does anyone have an old aquarium they don't want? Preferably something larger than 20 gallons. I am going to be doing my own chrome electroplating with it. I actually could use more than one if possible.
      Plus, whomever helps me out with this, if I can get it setup correctly and actually do the chroming, I'll do some chrome parts as well. I also do powder coating for those that need smaller things powder coated.

      my girlfriend and our roomate both work at just pets and the owner has a garage full of tanks and what not. i can ask if i can snag one. even if i cant get one for free i can probably get a good deal.
      also i would be interested in getting my bugattis powdercoated.

      just ordered up some falken 912's for the ole S4. one tire that was in really bad shape let go on the way to work this morning, and when i got done and back to my car tonight after work it was flat, on goes the full size spare.
      should hopefully see the tires at the door step around wednesday i'm guessing.

      currently have asx by kuhmo they were alright, time to try something different.

      Look up at my previous post as to where to get them mounted. They're about 5 min from our homes right by the McDonalds on Green Bay Rd. just off 41 and Winneconne.

      Just a friendly reminder.....
      The One Lap is at Road America next Sat. May 3rd.
      I talked to Enrique and it should be a free entry fee, but like I said it may be like $5 or $10, but I doubt it.
      I think I'm going to get there by 9AM, which means leaving appleton by 7:30 or so. Usually when I meet up with others to head to RA we meet at the 3rd street diner in Menasha for some Bfast at like 6:30 or so, eat and then head to the track.
      Is anyone else interested in going?

      when i get my taxes back i think i might. i got a lot of stuff i want to buy with my stimulus check and taxes. i think first on the list is msd as my coilpack is on its way out. after that i would like to get euro fenders from the dealer if available. (as they are becoming less and less accessable.) gonna talk to scott or mike at VDH and see if they can still get em. if not i would like to buy that head from you. either way come june-july i should have extra money to buy stuff with and will take that off your hands. sorry for the long wait, but i will have all my debt paid off by end of june. and no sense in setting myself back further.
