Re: don't try this at home??

<Audi wheels and bolts and patterns....
...about 2 years ago....in a land no so different from ours...
    I thought I would share a little story.  I have an 87 4000S, 1.8L.  I

 went to a junkyard to track down a spare set of wheels for Auto-X.  I went
 home with a set of 14" factory wheels from a 4000csq.  I was all ready to
 mount them, and they wouldn't fit.   If you didn't know, you would think
  that they look identical, but:
                       4000q takes a 4-bolt, 14mm, (don't know pattern)

                  4000S, 4-cyl, takes 4-bolt 12mm, 4X100mm std. VW pattern

    Keep in mind that this is when I was younger, and stupider(more stupid?),
  and that I have grown up since then.  Hey, my 3 previous cars were Fords, so
  what the H*** would I know about AWDEES??

    Despite electrical probs, etc., it is true:

   Once you try one, you'll never go back!!
