how is the new car?

what do you think?

would you at all be interested in some 17" superleggera's with pirelli Pzero nero's on them?

they're a really pretty wheel package --i need to sell them as i am selling the legacy GT wagon.

you have the right of first refusal, my friend.

Hmmmm....

I'll talk to the wife. Frankly, as much as I would like them (assuming they fit the Saab), we really wanted to go with 15" winter tires, and the Saab wheels are 16" (which would become the winter wheels if we got your wheels).

Anyway, thanks for thinking of me. I'll be honest, I don't think this will work, but I'll think about it.

Then charge more.

Am I going to have to ask Nate to explain this whole supply/demand thing to you?

but to me, it's worth it to be done with the wheels and not have them collect dust in the basement, like those 16" BBS RK's are doing at present.

no one wants them but it's hard for me to go to the effort to list them on eBay to sell them.

i think i got 12 offers within an hour tonight after i posted them at the subie big board. it's good. they'll even come and pick them up. they're really nice wheels --i wish i could get them as OEM replacements for the CTS-V, for example. the only things that are the options are those mille miglia thingys which are heavy.

The reactions were quite funny, though. $280 for 4? You really do live up to that "dirt-cheap" label.

it's cool.

someone else is really going to get a kick of them.

i'm happy to not deal with them taking up space.

always fun to help out fellow enthusiasts. subie ones are more fun than most, too.

BMW ones are dumbasses who keep insisting OHC engines are better....

No, they're dumbasses who don't know how to check their oil level (if toadfly postings are any measure). :P
