    I'll have to get a picture next time I swing by the garage. Picture a wheel after someone threw a handful of gravel at it. Nothing crazy, just a bunch of little chips.

    Good news though. We got in touch with someone at Rotiform, not easy since they don't list a phone number, and they apparently have thousands of these wheels around the warehouse. Reached out to a vendor and got a new one at a discounted price. Guess they discontinued them since the color was so hard to paint. Said the finishes varied from batch to batch. Dude laughed when I asked if a shop would be able to paint match.

    Front fenders were rolled today. No more rubbing.. maybe.

    Buddy traded in his MK6 R for an MK7 R previously owned by Fish (Risky Devil/NFS Game).

    Yeah. Brake Lights. Need to modify the harness and enter some new code for it to operate the same as the European models though. No biggie.

    Finally ordering a new Clutch (South Bend Stage 3 Daily) and an APR Downpipe to go with a Stage 2 Tune. Should be done before the end of next month.

    It's probably the best car I've ever owned.

    Yeah, until the 5spd turned into a ticking time bomb.

    New Clutch and Downpipe showed up yesterday. Install scheduled for the 8th. Aside from an alignment, I think I'm done with the thing for a while.
