I think I am in the minority when I say this but I like the Detroit wheels. Maybe after a couple of years I will probably switch them out but for now they will do.

Not really. Lots of people like the Detroits, it's just that since they're stock wheels, you hear all about the people who are switching them out. The people who like them and keep them on usually don't say anything on the forum.

Some guy out of Miami. He was parting out his GTI. Lucky me we had the same color car.
