    Upgrading to 18inch

    Currently running 16" wheels on my wagon and thought about upgrading to 18 inch. Now I was looking at the 18" prisma wheels that come off the Atlas but also noticed that they weigh 32lbs (just wheel, no tire) each. Which would be around 128lbs just in wheels alone and not tires.

    Mk4 TDi Golf

    I'm thinking about getting a new car and it's going to be a MK4 Golf. Now Im deciding between gas and diesel. I've come here to ask the TDi people what are some the pros and cons of having one. I've never driven a TDi before nor a MK4. I already know one of the pros is you don't fill up often...
