Experience of all kinds is easily garnered with these cars.  Most of it's good!  Common Audi-ownership sense prohibits me from stating out loud the reassuring answer you're looking for re: getting on top, but I will say, have faith -- it's not always big money and time.  Fun and pride will start working its way in there!

For the wheels, assuming they're the flat-faced ones with 5 very short spokes, not the BBS mesh type, the market is minimal.  Save 'em for all that Mesa snow you get.  The BBSers are 15" also, but worth a bit more, especially if the polished lips aren't too corroded.  What size tires?  215/60-15?  There's usually a bit of a demand for 4 equally-good tires..
