What is VW's policy about replacing stock rims and tires? The Continental Touring tires are terrible, and I would like the dealership to replace the tires with Michellin Sport Pilot A/S or another All-Season Performance tire before I buy the car. There's a local dealership in the DC Metro Area that's replacing the stock rims with BBS RC's and a performance all-season tire, but they are asking 45K for the setup. Also, is VW offering a 17inch rim and tire for the 2003 Model W8's? If so, I may W8... hahaha...
I wanted to ask about this policy before the Equifax Gods sign my life away for 4 Years! LOL...

Re: Seeking advice... Should I W8 for a W8??? (The Swami)

If VW is like Audi, they won't even let you factory order options that are standard in Europe but not available here. They purposely debilitate our (North America) cars and then are too stupid to let us pay extra to return them back to Euro-spec. (I am referring to non-saftey, non-environmental options, of course).
It's like the twits at headquarters in Michigan have to justify their existence by making sure each and every model has a host of changes from the Euro model. I think they should all be fired and replaced by a small team who manage the legally required changes only and leave the rest of the cars alone.

Re: Seeking advice... Should I W8 for a W8??? (Marc Collins)

I'm going to just put $500.00 down and get the exact Black-On-Black W8 I want. If I have to wait for the car, then sobeit...
This will also give me the opportunity to buy a set of BBS RC's and tires for my current ride then move them over when the car finally arrives.
