Just pulled the trigger on my HP Addicts $250 coupon code. Not going to lie, the checkout screen made me grin quite a bit.

Really? I am just sayin here, but your wheels were pretty fugly to say the least. curbed pretty bad. Used wheels usually are. Then add in the salt from NW PA which eats them as well. You even admited they were scuffed in the post. Did you see if They could do anything before you posted this? Ive had absolutly nothing but good there. I cant see them gouging anybody. tact is prob something to use in this case. May get you further than bashing, even if its just a little bit of bashing

Hey Tony,

I did admit my wheels were curbed and scuffed, not denying that fact in the least. I just wish Jason had informed me of him not accepting my wheels as an exchange before I OK'd the powder coating and they did the swap. I can understand how this comes off as bashing, but I again want to clarify: I LOVE Grabiak Chevrolet. They are the BEST dealership I have ever dealt with.

yea I get the frustration. for sure. It might not of been his decision to make about not accepting them as trade in. Maybe someone saw them and said, oh hell no. once a wheel is curbed badly you really are hard pressed to find someone who wants one.

I dont know the ins and outs of your conversation, just saw this post and shared my thoughts. Can you just keep your non coated wheels and run them in the winter? can you sell the scuffed ones to someone just looking for wheels to run in winter only or for someone who is maybe going to plasti-coat or something that would blend the scuffs in?
Im sure you can work something out with him. I just know the service there and from what Ive seen even it being a 2 hour drive each way, id be there for everything just from how they have treated me from day one.

Just got off the phone with Jason, and all I can say is wow. He was great, he understood my feeling of being blindsided this morning and my frustration. This whole situation falls back on to me though, I do remember telling Jason that yea my wheels were scuffed, but they were good. So that is 100% my fault. Note to self: be more descriptive when talking about things. Jason and I worked out a system/deal, so everything did end up working out in the end. Going to have to write that man a nice thank you card for all the help he has done.

Yes. They offer CCFL and SMD. The SMDs are LEDs where the CCFL is a gas I believe, or something similar.

Kind of annoyed a bit. On my drive from Meadville, PA back to Great Falls, VA I lost one of my static cling tail light tints I noticed it when I got to the hotel last night, and upon closer inspection I saw that I was close to losing the other 3 as well To save myself the lawsuit of one of these bad boys flying off and hitting the poor car behind me while driving I just took them all off. Will be ordering a new set of headlight armor stealth tints this week for sure. The lights are just too bright without the tints on, I just loved that when I had my parking lights on the afterburners just had the faint glow to them while the rest of the tail light was still dark.

ALSO, this week: antenna delete/relocation. It's happening. I know I have been saying that for about 2 weeks now, but I've got this whole week off (work doesn't pick up til next week). I will be doing a photo DIY and before/after pictures here.

There are also new/updated pictures in my OP.

Nice ride... do you do pic requests? If so, how about some more of the stocking clad legs?
