As of right now I got around 12-13k tied up in it parts/my labor etc. But thats counting stupid stuff i done bought for it , IE jb2hr , 20's , Logic intake . I still have to purchase all the cooling stuff , which was good on the parts car . Drivers airbag , passengers roof bag , right quarter skin , rt door , RAD/COND/FAN , windshield , quarter glass , and front bumper (possibly the reiger full kit?)

By the time its all said and done i shouldnt have no more than 17-18k .

No!!

I have heard of this happening to replica wheels, so I guess mine
held up for some time, but I was washing my car and saw this
I have had them on since September

any pot hole can do that man esp when your running a 30 series tire...sucks but most larger wheels esp replicas arent that strong...im a big fan of schmidt wheels due to the fact they use a metal called radinox..GOOGLE IT!...its SUPER strong but pretty expensive

Im probably just going to buy a new tire and new rim.

I mean a set of BBS CH's would be nice and sexy, but a lot more
expensive. My dad will at least replace the rim and tire.
If I want something else Im going to have to pay. I do have enough
cash saved up to buy some BBS LM's or CH's but since this happened
I dont want an expensive wheel. I really need to order that Valentine 1
though.

Ouch that sucks dude.. I assume it doesn't drive horribly since you had to notice it by washing, not by driving.

I never really thought our pot holes were bad compared to the northeast and CA. I guess they can be pretty expensive holes, too.

It has come that time again for another meet. This meet will be held in Chattanooga TN. This time around I am about 100% sure that I will not be sick!!! Haha

The meet will take place at 1PM and last until everyone goes home. We will be meeting at Carmike Battlefield 10. We will chill there until everyone arrives, check out some cars, and take a few pics. From there we wil be going into the Battlefield (park). Nice cruise speeds and a great place to get some rolling shots of our cars.

After getting some nice shots out in the battlefield we will then head over to the Colonnade for a group shot and a great place to take 1x1 shots as well. From here comes the fun (like it wasn't fun already!). We will head over to the Winners Circle for some gokarts and air hockey. Air hockey will be a by in of $2 a game. This is some great fun and the last time we did this we had someone go home with enough money to cover their trip in gas and food!

After all this I am sure everyone will be a little bit hungry. So you may ask...whats for dinner? We will be taking a nice cruise to downtown Chattanooga. Once there we will be eating at a resturant called Genghis Grill. For anyone that has not been here, ask a few members that I have taken and they will say hands down some of the best food you have put in your mouth. Its rediculous!

Once done eating it will be around 7pm is what I am guessing. At that time for those that need to head home may do so. For those that would like to stay there are a few of us that are going to hit up a movie or something.

So what does this meet offer this time around? Well we have some more goodies to give away. On top of that we will be giving out some random prizes as well Hope to see everyone there. Please feel free to cross link this thread to any other board you are a member of. Just be sure to post the link in this thread where you are placing it so that we do not double post.

He couldnt even give me a ball park of what the cost would be or anything . God a hate Grayson , Takes FOREVER to get ahold of anyone , it takes over 30 sec to get anyone to answer the main dealership phone . END RANT

Ok guys... decision time for me....gunmetal CSLs or Matte Grey Breyton GTS?

Or, do you think neither look good on the AW?

I was concerned about the greys/gunmetals always looking dirty....
