If he wants to, he can, if not he'll say so. Simple as that. The car has been on the market for 45+ days, so I figured it wouldn't hurt. Besides, I've already been in touch with him via e-mail and he said he would have done this deal with me had he not already had the exact same deal going with someone local to him. <p>P.S. Be sure and add some salt to that foot for a little flavor because the man can do with his R what he wants. It's not up to you.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (HoustonT5-R)

Of course he can do whatever he wants to, it's his car but they are a good selling point and if it were MY car I would leave them on.<br>Good luck with the sale whatever you do
