        Just did a small formatting edit before putting this on the front page.

        $400 a wheel? That's awesome. A full set for well under $2k. Guess I'm used to seeing the insane margins from everyone else making wheels.

        Lightweight, affordable, and good looking.

        That process has come a long way though and not everyone in the VW world is going to spring for a set of magnesium rims for a track day that are worth more than the car.

        Obviously these are much better than the factory rims for track use, right?

        That's what we do with our track cars. We'll probably switch to our forged wheels when they release, as they are lighter (but more expensive).

        APR site changed to that for probably ~2 years now. It used to just show the US price. It's kind of annoying since hiding the pricing allows the dealers to gouge a little extra because of the lack of transparency in pricing. Most of the Canadian dealer sites are pretty poorly made and infrequently updated too so it's hard to find the products you want.

        That's what you get for electing Justin Trudeau.
