<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I just need a moment to vent... You see, since purchasing my car in January, i have been on the hunt for Atreus rims to put on for the summer. I had deals done 3 times and every time they were either sold from underneath me or they decided they didnt want to sell them in the end. <p>Fast forward to last week when i win an ebay auction for a set of Atreus rims with 40 miles on them - mint. Well the seller dropped one off his tailgate when taking them to UPS and bent the poop out of it (yes, poop.). At least he was good enough to refund me everything and let me know about it rather than just take the money and run.... So disappointed though.... Anyone have an extra Atreus rim for sale? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Sana has a set of 5, but I don't know if he would be willing to sell one separately...

That must be maddening. Any chance of getting the one repaired? Or just buying the one from a dealer? Does that wheel rebate still exist? I remember they had one last year, and think they started it up again a month or two after it was over.<p>You do have the 3, right? Can't be toooo much to get a third from the dealer...

Similar story for my OEM bodykit. I had a guy who was local sell me his brand new oem kit and promised me that the V50 is the exact same hit for S40. I took the plunge and also got it painted before trying to install. When it came to trying to put the rear on, it was totally off. What a waste of poop, paint and pride. Luckily "mofolicious" was able to send me his damaged "goods". When i brought it to the shop, they were shocked at the damage and quoted me lots to get it repaired and glued. Luckily that same day in class, I mentioned it to my friend and he was able to hook me up with his dad to get it glued and fixed for free! He works for Benz bodyshop. I only had to pay 100 bucks for the bumper and 100 bucks for the paint <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">. 15 min installation <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">. <p>O and the guy who was local, gave me 50 bucks back cause it didnt' fit.

Yeah i have sent sana an IM - perhaps we could ALL lobby him into splitting his extra Atreus rim off to a guy who is in dire need! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Its pretty maddening but those stupid rims are SO nice! (oh and the stealership wants $800cdn for one! yeah i laughed)

Oh wow that's more than I paid for all my [replica] Pegs. Well before the repair anyways. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>So you don't have the 4th wheel to attempt a repair? I can't see how a fall off of a truck could totally FUBAR it... I know of a good wheel shop down in Regina. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> There's gotta be somewhere up there in E-town who knows their stuff when it comes to wheel repair.<p>And if not.... Come on Sana! Help a fellow Volvo owner out! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">:D

I actually dont have any of the wheels right now. He's down in Texas and was taking them to UPS to ship them to me today. I called and he said its unrepairable. I did ask for pics of the damaged rim though so we'll see.... but sana would be the ideal hero <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
