    19 GTI rabbit

    Hi, I've got a 19 GTI rabbit in pure white, it has the 18" black pretoria stock wheels. I like the stock wheels but I'm contemplating maybe going to different rims, what wheel do you guys think would look best or do you think I should stick with the stock rims?

    undercarriage spraying

    With winter salt on the roads I took my car in the manual wash bay to spray it down. I also used the sprayer in spot free rinse mode and sprayed the undercarriage on all sides. This won't do any harm, right? The undercarriage sprayers people roll under their cars spray everything.

    place order or just buy off lot

    Hey Guys, i have never bought a new car, this will be my first time. Anyone ever prefer to just place an order and wait for it to arrive (I think wait is like 2 months) or just buy one off the lot? For some reason I wanted to order one and wait, so it would be even newer when I pick it up.
