If you got away for only $325 to recover from a ruined tire you got off easy. I had a similar experience and by the time I had my two wheels repaired and two replacement tires it was close to $1500...

I wanted the changer, but they eliminated it in my April, 2012 build. I did get a credit, and haven't missed it much.

Just a quick update. My car now has 3200 miles. I continue to use the AAWP and it works very well. Depending on conditions I seem to get about 1k miles (~4 washes and 4 weeks) before I need to...

The Sonax works ok (and the permanganate action going from green to red is pretty cool), but I guess after all the rave reviews here and other places I expected too much. The car I tested it on was...

Congrats!

The A7 is definitely not an SL55. Even with an ECU upgrade, you're not going to get that kind of power/weight ratio with the A7. That being said, I've found the A7 adequately powerful...

Hartmann (replicas, but great reputation) has them in 19s and 20s. The OE site looks interesting, but they seem to be out of stock on all of the wheels I'm interested in.

Looks to me like they're copying the look of 4 rings without violating the TM or design patent. I've seen this on wheels from OE Wheels.

Serious bummer. Not sure where you are, but I'd suggest getting on Yelp and looking for highly rated body shops. They may be able to feather and touch up the spot.

Good luck.
