I am on a yearly modding budget and would like advice on what to do first...I have an red V50 and am going to get it tinted all around. My thinking is to go black/dark in theme (black grille, anthracite wheels, etc)<p>But, I have found a great deal on some 17" Volans...not my first choice, but a GOOD deal. My first choice would be pegs, but given the deal...

Re: Ok friends...a bit torn here on what to do with the V50 thoughts appreciated! (Veefifty T5AWD)

From Fellow V50 modding friend to fellow V50 modding friend, I'd say... really listen to your heart on this closely. If you want those Pegs , then hold out. (I know you want those from your writting and honestly just want to give you the best friend advise) Buying a 2nd best wheel only to sell it later... wow if I had a nickel for every time I did that.

You are right, I dig the pegs...but I can get this set of Volans for $350 maybe even $300...think I'll ever find mint pegs for that? This is why I'm torn. Plus I can't spend a ton on whatever I get regardless. <p>I appreciate the advice and reading of my tone, I'm an English teacher so A for the day to you! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
