muck that, get some after market rims from pep boys. you can cut that shit down to like 400-500$. dont buy mini coopers stock shit. especially not for 1100.
meh, a lot of that is just from our retarded taxes over here in Canada.
here we go, actual figures from my bill of sale
Both front wheels (rims + mounts and balance) $748.00
installation labour $ 79.00
Total: $ 827.00
Wheel alignment $ 129.95
Subtotal $ 957.85
H.S.T. 13% $ 124.52
Total $ 1082.37
So the actual price for the stock mini stuff wasn't too
bad, I paid $748 for the both of them from my licensed dealer. Then take into account the USD is still around 5 cents more than ours and factor that out of my $748.00 price for those tires and you're looking at around almost $700. So yea, I'm paying maybe 100 bucks more out of pocket just for the mini name. Which is alright to me.
I come on every day and have no idea what Baltar is talking about.
