no surprise that a seller would put the cheapest possible
tires on a car for sale.  so you might as well deal with
'em as long as you want.  and find someone to sell them to
or give them to, instead of letting them go to waste, when
you finally want to dump 'em.

good score on the avant.  a b5 avant was my first new car,
and we're loving our b7 avant.  extended the lease one more
year, we'll see what happens at the end of '08.
