Go 22's and slam it to the ground. Drive around the potholes, not through them like Fred.

If he has a RWS, maybe he can take it out of the car, lay it across the pothole, and use it as a bridge.

The are always the competing demands of function vs. form.

If you get larges rims, but the tires blow up all of the time, do you think that you will be better off?

Also, now that we have explained it, what type of interior trim does your car have? Do you have a RWS?

I did not really know either.

I read some posts about it, but was not sure and ultimately thought it would not matter.

But then the first Seven that I ordered came in and it did not have it.

However, before I accepted delivery of the car, it was stolen off the dealer's lot by The Thobe (that is another story).

That gave me a second chance to re-order the car with burled walnut instead of the fine line wood and that is how I came to have a RWS.

Welcome to the club!

So are you going to come clean? Do you or do you not have one?

That is a very nice looking trim, but it also means that you do not have a RWS.

That is a personal choice.

You do not have one, but, if you want a RWS now that you know it exists, you can do a retrofit.

The retrofit is explained in the thread - RWS Important Special Announcement.

The only thing worse than retrofitting an RWS is putting 22 ' s on a 7!
