FFFFUUUUUU
I got my first twice-a-week paper route when I was 8, and I haven't been without at least one part time job since then. Most of the time I've got 2-3 part time jobs.

Perhaps you cats can clear this up for me: What would it take to fit a set of say, stock 325i bottlecaps onto an IX? Is it only the offset thats different, or is the bore different too?

Stick out a lot further? I'm looking at an IX tomorrow and the guy said he has 2 sets of rims: stock weaves and bottlecaps off his old 325i that I could use for winter/snow tires. I wouldn't wanna run them if they were gonna rub/scrape and stuff..

Sitting on stock suspension, painted stock rims.. Here's the link: http://madison.craigslist.org/cto/2097133566.html

Im gonna do the jack test to see how the AWD works, or I'll find a snowy parking lot and give it a try. I'm scrambling looking at buyers guides for the IX, seems like some stuff is just insanely expensive..
