Yes. I have a quote for $250 so far if I bring it in to be recovered. I would hate to go through all that work only to have it sag in a few years. BTW...it appears you need to watch for the sun visor ribbon cable when removing it. Some people damaged this cable it appears.

Kriesel - I would be happy to help as this would be a good test drive on doing it myself. For now, the tacks are holding it up. Contact me if you are interested. I also have a set of tools for the interior. Torx as well.

My wife and I are already planning a day trip up there so we could swing by in the X5D if the stars align.

Side note: if anyone needs new rear axle bushings for their MKIV, I have a set of the solid SEAT Cupra R bushings for sale for $40. They've followed me through 4 moves and I've never managed to get around to installing them. The TDI only sees occasional duty now, so I will probably never get around to it.

will be up in a week to drop our daughter at UMD... but I doubt the rest of the family are going to get all that excited about a GTG! Just ordered a heater from Terry... wonder if that will arrive before then - might be a fun and super useful install?

You could stop by if you want. A frost heater is easier with 4 hands.

good to know - that last trip would have been a bust even if we had made arrangements - my cousin dropped dead that week from an aortic dissection - pro tip of the week... don't have one of those.

I don't know what the UMD parent's schedule is for sure -- but October 13 rings a bell. The org I work for is hosting the National Farm Viability Conference in Red Wing starting on the 21st - so there is NO WAY we can leave town the weekend before that. I'll check with my navigator to see if there is a duluth trip planned for October and maybe we can roll by your place!

Picked up four Bridgestone Blizzaks today, 195/65R15, 91H, for $291including tax (saved $40 by picking them up myself at TireRack's Roseville distribution center).

And there's an $80 mail-in rebate, so my final cost will be $211. Also comes with two years of free Road Hazard Protection.

Limited supplies, so I presume limited sizes too.
