Sure is! That's my boyfriend's (Shaka on Vortex) He has a 2000 TT Quattro and an .:R32... Both for sale - trading in for a Touareg!

Wedding Gift!

OK, so Shaka and I spilled the beans to each other about what we're getting each other for our wedding (July 4, 2006!!)

Turns out he's getting me a set of 19x8 A8L replicas!

He sent me a photoshop of my car with the wheels... ALTHOUGH... There's an added bonus :: The "insert" areas will be color-matched to my car!! That's right - Snap Orange accents on my pimpin' new A8L's!!

We are putting the Eibach Pro-Kit springs on tonight, (as well as an ECS Ultimate Dogbone Engine Mount Kit) so when I get the wheelies I will certainly be posting more pics!

Anyhow, for now, enjoy the Photoshop version :p

Ahh, but sadly the TT is no longer with us... We have a 2004 Touareg V8 now, though - so we're still pimpin'!! :p

What are you going to do with the rims you took off? you realize there worth a buttload of cash right? O'hh yea your car is the bomb!!!!
I'm putting new M&S-rated all-seasons on them and using them for my winter set-up. The old bag who owned this car before me curbed 'em all up. I'd like to smack her for some of the things she did to this car! Thank goodness I saved it from certain doom!! :D
