Just some parting words as my lease is up on the V50 next Wednesday. Last minute life change made the V50 the wrong car for me otherwise I'd keep it. Wicked car. Thanks for all the advice and entertainment this forum brought me. Was good while it lasted.<p>So it's off into the sunset with my new E46 M3.<p><IMG SRC="http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g56/rodlentino/Volvo/IMG00084.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g56/rodlentino/M3/IMG00087.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g56/rodlentino/M3/IMG00088.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Goodbye V50. Hello M3. (rodlentino)

Well done - very nice car! I am making the switch myself, from an older E34 5-series to the T5.<p>Enjoy that M3 in good health...it'll be a blast.

Nice! Sad to see you go but at least you are going with a nice ride! I really like that generation and the newest of the M3.

I'm sure there are people on the board who would love to swap with you this weekend. (and maybe even throw some cash your way!) Share the SS love! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>They are just going to waste otherwise. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

That's why it's great that despite being an '06 it has the balance of the free maintenance/warranty remaining...what with only 27,800km on it!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>It also helps when your cousin is a BMW tech at your local dealer.

Yeah, I guarantee someone will be willing to figure out a quick solution to the winter tire problem and you'd be up some cash as well! Do it!

Re: Goodbye V50. Hello M3. (rodlentino)

Purely as a matter of principle, if you leased the car with the Sagitta’s on then your dealership should take them back with them on, especially, if you bought the Medusa’s separately. <br>I can only imagine that the 18” cost more then the stock 17”, so it wouldn’t be right for you to just hand them over to them like that. It’s sad to say but the dealership might be pulling a fast one on you. <p>You might also want to re-read the lease agreement, to see if they are allowed to refuse winter tires instead of summer or all seasons. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I might be wrong, but that’s just my opinion. And you can consider it an unbiased opinion, because I have no interest in getting 18”, nor would they fit on my S60.<p>Have fun with the M3, I’m sure you will. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Cheers,<br>Raf<br>

Yeah, good point. Even if you had to throw cheap all seasons on the sagitta's, you could sell the medusa with tires and come out on top. If you have decent tread on the medusas, you could probably get $800 easily in the classifieds. The more I think about your situation, the more I agree with raffneck. Dealer is getting a huge bonus here.

What are your winters and how much tread are left on those? I may be interested (tires and rims) and I'm located downtown Toronto.<p>Too bad I just got a set of new set of Mestra wheels off ebay. Would've loved to have a crack at your Medusa's.
