This thread contradicts everything you just said, along with the countless pm's-Mk3 Wheel Spacer Information
You have tied-up a lot of my time by answering your many questions about the car, suspension, wheel fitment, etc. All your previous post does is show that you're ungrateful to those that actually have helped you achieve what you have done with your car. I used my own time, tore apart my own car, and even volunteered to meet you half-way in order for you to be 100% sure that what you were purchasing was exactly what you wanted and needed.
You even told me of the hassle you had with Mike in trying to get a swap. I've detailed in other threads how he has and continues to sell parts that actually don't fit the Mk3. Without me mentioning these things online, many people wouldn't know until after having already purchased the part. Many people, just like yourself, had purchased the part and already had it en-route to them. Your attitude would be 100% different had I not spoken up and saved you from the damage you would have possibly had had you installed them and then damaged your tire/fender when you hit a bump and your tires rub.
I don't know 'all about cars'; I actively research and learn. In turn, I pass what I learn onto others in order to help them-as shown by the wheel spacer thread. That is not condescension, and my FF reputation shows that I actively try to help people. If you don't want to thank the people that have actually
helped you then that is your prerogative.
