Damn that is sexy. I love the double window roll down leaving a huge opening. How much is a stockish decent shape coupe like that?

also I'm not saying it will be a bad car, in fact I pray its not for your sake, all I'm saying is they are expensive to maintain and literally eat parts. plan accordingly.
They are almost new. I'll see how bad the diff is on the new tire. I'll measure it, if it's bad, I'll put a new one no the other side. If different, it should be fine with both rear new, right?

you have a center diff too... gotta think of the front to rear diameter difference.


i know brad... want WAGON... plus ZOMG cargo space... but $$$$.... and i love wilhelm... so it'd be hard to let him go.

You can only have 3/32" off max. If more than that you can fubar your difs. Tires are pretty much an all or nothing deal.

I'll measure and see. Hope it's not more than that lol.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't know it was THAT close on the AWD quattro system.
I usually do the tires in pairs always, but since they're like new, I was hoping to avoid that. I'll know later today I suppose!
