That would be Beau the Basset (guy)
Dealer here wants $367 and a very reputable Euro shop down the street from my office (A+ for convenience) wants $320. Yikes. I’m going to shop around for quotes a bit more, may just have to go with the $320 indy due to proximity to my job.
If my living situation was any different (i.e. garage/driveway) I no doubt would be doing it myself. Unfortunately, I only have a tiny parking spot I pay through the nose for at my building and wouldn’t be able to get it done there. Not to mention like you said, wrenching in the cold sucks immensely. Thanks for the…
I live in Boston proper but the GFs family actually lives in Fall River/Tiverton... I’ll keep them in mind. Thanks!

Stock wheels on my GTI. They might be the most susceptible-to-curb-rash wheels ever produced and I personally think 18s are too big for any hot hatch. I consider myself an average to above average parallel parker and I’ve chewed up a couple of my once pristine wheels. People always compliment them and are shocked when…
Thanks for the link. I’ll pick up that along with the PB Blaster. I always kept a can in my old Jeep and I think it’s just good to have around anyways.
Yeah, I’m going to pick up a can of PB Blaster soon so this doesn’t happen again when the winters come off in late March-Early April
Any mods planned? I only did a resonator delete which gave it the exact sound I was looking for and it has plenty of power to make me giggle in stock form.
Glad you’re enjoying it. I had my Mk6 on the track not long ago and it illustrated the short comings of FWD to another degree for me. My next car will definitely be RWD or AWD, but this car will always have a piece of my heart as a car that’s simply good at everything. Cute pup. My basset hound loves riding shotgun in…
Between rent and these roads I’m not far from it!
Picking them up tomorrow morning. Woohoo.
Storage won’t be an issue (MIL’s garage)
They’re not a necessity. However, for the price, it being the time of the year that it is, and having lost a tire today it makes sense in my eyes.
That was exactly my plan. I luckily have a place to store my all-seasons. Just waiting to hear back from the seller and I’ll pull the trigger if the tires present in-person as well as they do in the pictures.
I’d normally concur with you but it looks to be a truthful description. I think he sold the VW leaving him with winter tires he no longer needed. I’ll update the post w the pictures from the ad.
They came off an Mk6 Sportwagen and after some checking online I believe brakes are identical or near enough to make no difference. Plus, looking at the pictures, I’m 99% sure they’re the Tire Rack steelies which will fit my GTI. Rocking 16s instead of low-pro 18s would be a relief in and of itself in the winter.…
Don’t know how I miss this original post. Here’s mine. https://oppositelock.kinja.com/my-dd-is-loud-obnoxious-and-impractical-and-i-love-i-1469525602
I drink Natural Light almost exclusively (by choice) so I’m in no position to bash others’ beverages of choice.
